The Steps For Getting Signed to a Book Publishing Company

The Steps For Getting Signed to a Book Publishing Company

In the writing world, getting signed to a book publishing company seems like one of the hardest things in the world. A lot of authors think they just have to keep throwing their book out there until they lose their mind trying. But have faith in yourself and your writing! You can get signed and you can have a successful book.

What Do You Do to Get a Book Publishing Company To Notice You?


When you are first starting out as a newbie writer, you may not know where to begin when it comes to getting published. The first thing you want to do? Write a solid book. You want your book to be completed, edited, read by beta readers or a writing coach, and in its most final version of itself. Once you have done this and written your amazing book, you want to research agents and publishers that specialize in your particular genre of writing. Agents are great assets to you as a newbie writer just starting out and can help you get your foot in the door of your dream book publishing company. Once you have completed that level of research, you need to begin researching the submission guidelines of agents and book publishing companies and begin sending in your manuscript. Sending in your manuscript is the most vital part of this process, which is why it must be solid writing. You’ve done your research, now it is your writing’s turn to speak for itself.

Sending in your manuscript to a book publishing company can be draining. It is possible, that you will be rejected from a few at first, but don’t let that destroy your hope! Every great author started out right where you are now—some publishers rejected the Harry Potter series for goodness sake! You can do this as long as you keep at it and don’t give up. Keep sending in your manuscripts and keep researching. Getting signed to a book publishing company can be a long process, but it is worth it in the end.
