Publishing 101: A First-Time Author’s Guide to Getting Published, Marketing and Promoting Your Book, and Building a Successful Career

Whether you’ve finished a manuscript or just have the seeds of an idea, learn how to smartly approach editors and agents with your work, while avoiding the pitfalls of first-time authorship.

Experienced editor and publisher Jane Friedman offers insights from more than 15 years of working on both sides of the desk, and offers step-by-step advice on:

  • evaluating the commercial potential for your work
  • finding and approaching editors and agents professionally
  • preparing query letters and book proposal materials
  • marketing and promoting your work effectively
  • protecting your rights and avoid infringing on others’ rights, and
  • understanding the self-publishing and ebook market—and if it’s the right path for you.

PUBLISHING 101 describes the dramatic changes underway in the publishing industry, as ebook sales increase and physical bookstores decrease in number. These changes affect how authors get book deals—meaning you need to be prepared to adapt to a risk-averse industry during a time of uncertainty.

Avoid frustration—don’t embark on the submission process without being fully educated about how the industry works. You’ll better focus your time and energy, increase your chances of success, and learn to decipher the language of industry professionals.

You wrote and published a book, now what? How do you reach readers?

With so many books filling the digital marketplace and bookstore shelf space, it’s often not quite enough to put forth our best work and launch, hoping we’ll see our name on the bestseller list.

The book promotion practices presented will also help you connect with readers and transform your writing life.

You’ll learn how to best serve your readership and promote your book with authenticity, make meaningful connections, and generously add value by forming new ways of thinking about promotion that will set you up to reach readers over time. There’s no magic formula for success, but if you’re ready to share your work with the world and be your own promo fairy, consider this book your wand.
