Back to Writing and Publishing Books

The holidays have really got me off track and I must apologize! Most visitors to A Book Inside come here to learn how to write a book—or publish one. With all the new stuff going on, the new Website, the holidays, and book giveaways, I’ve strayed away from what most of you want—writing and publishing help! So please accept my apologies and I promise we will get back to the book writing and publishing tips right after the first of the year. Until then, I have listed below some of the blog viewers past favorites for you. Enjoy!

One more “brag” moment; A Book Inside is now rated in the top 2.29% of all Websites on the WWW. This is all thanks to you and your support! Google has recognized that we are not going away and are here for the long haul! Writers, published authors, send us your “wants” and I will target those subjects in 2009.

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice

blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.

You may have this covered in your archives. I would like to see something about deciding between submitting to a publisher or self-publishing. Should you try a regular publisher first and then if that doesn't work, try self-publishing? Should you submit to X number of publishers before you give up and try self-publishing?

Thanks for your comment. I may have that info in the archives, I'll need to look. But generally, I suggest a writer find 5 traditional publishing houses to submit to. But writer beware...don't waste your time at plugging your script to the wrong buyer. Publishers are picky and their interests change regularly. I always recommend getting a current copy of Writer's Market to find the best possible publisher for you!
Best to all!!!
