How Your Book To Get Published

If you’re not sure how to go about getting your book published by a reputable publisher, make sure to follow these steps.

1. Know Your Genre

You need to know the specific genre and subgenre of your book. Some publishers only publish romance novels, while others may only publish nonfiction business books. By understanding your genre, you’ll know which publishers to pursue and which to ignore.

2. Find an Appropriate Publisher for Your Book

Different publishers focus on different genres, so you should only create your own personal list of publishers who are actively publishing books in your genre. Otherwise, you’re just wasting your time.

3. Research and Prepare

Once you’ve got your own personal list of potential publishers, visit their websites, check out their submission guidelines, read reviews about them online and on author forums, and find out as much as you can to make sure they’ll be a good fit for you to work with.

Some publishing companies accept open submissions from any author, while others only accept submissions from literary agents. If you need or want to work with a literary agent, you should browse our list of literary agents to find one that will be a good fit for you.

4. Submit Your Manuscript

After you identified a specific publishing house that accepts open submissions from authors, make sure you read their submission guidelines and follow their process exactly. If you don’t follow their guidelines, chances are your submission will be automatically rejected or ignored.

If the publisher only accepts submissions from literary agents, you’ll need to speak with your agent about submitting your book to them.
