How To Find Book Publishing Services

Author: Terence Tam

Every good writer knows that writing a book is one thing but publishing is another thing entirely. There are several publishing houses out there but how do you find them? There are two ways to find book publishing services, but before you begin your search for book publishers, you need to figure out the following:

  • Do you want to publish an electronic book? (e-book)
  • Do you want to publish your book the old fashioned way? (hard copy prints)
  • How much do you want to spend?

Answering the above questions will help you determine what kind of publishing service you should be looking out for. The two ways to find publishing service are:

1) The Internet

Thank goodness for modern technology, with the internet you have information at your fingertips, and all you have to do is search for it online.

With the internet, you get to sit in the comfort of your home and search for whatever information you are looking for. We all hope a simple click – ‘search’ would get the job done, but knowing the vast publishing services that are available in the web space, you need to prepare and do your homework. You will find there are publishing services that have different packages to accommodate your budget, even publishing services that will help you publish and market your books effectively and some would even still allow you to retain the ownership of the rights to your book(s).

A Tip to find a good publication service from among crowed is from the testimonies of people who have published with that company. Take time to read the feedback and reviews of the publishing service to understand if this is the kind of service you are hoping to get.  After much research you should find the Book publishing services that will suit your publishing needs to a T.

2) The Old Fashioned Way

This is quite simple really, all you need to do is ask questions. You can ask people who are published writers and they are sure to tell you all you need to know.

Remember to look around you, head on down to your local independent book stores, and browse through the books on the shelves. Look for the books that are selling, and note down the local publishers name and give them a call.

Remember you don’t have to commit to any publisher just yet, again the word is ‘RESEARCH’. Don’t think that great writers like Danielle Steel, Steven King, John Grisham etc ever had it easy, they also had to do their research and come to think of it, these guys didn’t have it easy because they didn’t have simple access to information like we do now.
