Online Library of Liberty The 5 Don’ts to be a Successfully Published Author | The Published Author As cryptic as the title sounds, there are a few things that can really turn the tide against your dreams of becoming a published writer. So, I am going to tell you about the 5 things NOT TO DO if you want your book published. These 5 DON’TS are not meant to discourage, these are the most common traps that the writer ignores and walks right into. For the purpose of this post I am only considering fiction, that is, novels and short novels. No.1: Do not start the BOOK PUBLISHING search before you complete your book Doesn’t make sense? The answer is NO. The process of getting your book published in print and into a bookstore takes 12 – 18 months, the process of manuscript evaluation and acceptance takes 6 – 8 months only. Also the 3 – 4 months of idle waiting can be the best time to revise and relook at your book. No. 2: Don’t skimp on the steps in the BOOK PUBLISHING APPLICATION PROCESS Research the appropriate book publishers for your work Or, the more likely scenario Wait, and wait some more.

ZEIT-Bibliothek der 100 Bücher Die ZEIT-Bibliothek der 100 Bücher war eine pädagogisch ambitionierte Artikelserie der Feuilleton-Redaktion der Wochenzeitung Die Zeit. Begonnen 1978, wurde in den folgenden zwei Jahren Woche für Woche eine Rezension zu einem Werk der Weltliteratur veröffentlicht. 1980 erschien eine Buchausgabe dieser Essays im Suhrkamp Verlag, herausgegeben von Fritz J. Raddatz, deren Verkaufserfolg das große Interesse an dieser Art Kanonbildung bestätigte; die Essaysammlung liegt 2009 in der unveränderten 13. Auflage vor. Der Erfolg der Unternehmung führte dazu, dass das Projekt fünf Jahre später um eine Sammlung ZEIT-Bibliothek der 100 Sachbücher ergänzt wurde, die Buchausgabe 1984 besorgte wiederum Raddatz als Herausgeber.

I remember the day I made the commitment to stop dreaming about this idea and put it into action. Of course, nothing I had originally planned turned out to schedule. Nonetheless, just over 1 year later, I often find myself pinching myself to remind me it’s all real because I’m spending my weeks taking and editing photos, answering calls from real clients, learning about photography and teaching lessons I’ve learned to others. It’s not only a dream come true, but a job that I find intrinsically fulfilling and rewarding, there’s enough money coming in to pay the bills and the business is growing fast. I think there were some key factors which really helped me along this journey. 1. Your motivations provide the context for your actions. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8.
