Writing a book can make you very happy. However, it is not easy to get your creative work published.
Many people dream about writing novels. However, they never take any step towards fulfilling this dream and end up writing no book.
Some people nurture the dream of becoming published authors. They start writing something, but leave the work mid way. They lack the patience required to finish writing novels. They are never able to achieve the dream of authoring books.
Only few people have the patience to start writing something and finishing it in spite of all the obstacles. These people are really gutsy. They have the persistence to work hard to achieve their dreams in spite of all daily-life challenges. Only some people are able to complete their manuscript.
You feel very good when you have finished writing something, whether it is a novel or a piece of poetry. You feel like you have achieved a big dream. Now there is a big challenge of getting your work published by a good book publishing house. It is not easy to get your novel published. The reality is that book publishers judge your book on so many criteria, and then decide if they want to publish it or not. If you are a first time writer, then expect rejection from by many of them.
If you want to make sure that your book has a good chance of getting published, then write it keeping in mind the market needs. Many manuscripts get rejected only because they are not targeted at a certain segment of readers. If your novel is boring and has no appeal for any segment of readers then it is most likely to be rejected by a book publisher.
It is recommended that you send the synopsis, author biography and a sample chapter to as many publishers as possible. It is never possible to know if your book will be published by a certain publisher. So, just to enhance your chance, make sure to send the proposal to many publishers. You never know which one will like your work.
If you fail to get any publisher for your book then it is suggested that you should go for self-publishing. As an increasing number of young people are writing books, some startups are enabling new authors to publish their books and distribute them, mostly on digital platforms, at a very economical rate. You should take benefit of that opportunity.
