How do I publish a book?

If you have a great idea for a book, there’s no one right way to go about trying to get it published. You can hire an agent to help you through it all and make sure you find a good publisher and get a good deal, but they’d take a cut of your fee (typically 10%), so you may choose to go it alone.

I’ve never actually approached a publisher – they came to me – but if you’re not that fortunate, the best way to try to get your book published is to submit a proposal to a publisher. To do that:

  • Find a publisher that produces the type of book you want to make.
  • Look for the submission requirements on that publisher’s website, and make sure you follow them exactly (the form of proposals is different for each publisher).
  • Make sure your proposal is complete and error-free – you only get one chance to make a first impression!
