You Wrote a Book – What Now?

By 2016, based on current trends, 50% of the books available online and even offline, will be self published.

How will this happen? Simple. Print on Demand technology has already progressed to the stage that even the big traditional publishers are using it – which means, yes, now we’re all equal.

Plus, distribution networks are now seeing that there is money to be made stocking and distributing self published books – as long as the writers are diligently involved in their promotion. read more

The Right Time to Write

Anthony Santoro writes that now, more than ever, writers and artists need to become involved in writing and publishing their books.

For a keen amateur writer, it can be hard to put pen to paper and muster the energy to write a book from start to finish while stuck in a 9-to-5 work-rest-work schedule.

Writers are faced with more than just the rigours of day-to-day existence, too. For example, very few writers that embark on the journey of writing a book actually finish it. Of those that do complete their stories and have completed manuscripts, fewer still will publish them. Of those that do publish them, few will make a full-time career out of the craft. read more

Self-Publish Your Way to Success

There are many compelling reasons to self-publish rather than go through a traditional publisher.  Here are nine!

1. You can enjoy the benefits of ‘published author’ status sooner rather than later

Being a publisher author rather than simply a writer with an unpublished manuscript can mean career acceleration, prestige, wealth and opportunities beyond your wildest dreams.  You can literally go from ‘unknown’ to ‘expert’ over night.  All of a sudden you are in demand, with people wanting you to sign their books, speak at their events, write articles on your subject and be interviewed on their shows.  With this newly established credibility you can begin holding seminars, commanding consulting fees, travelling the world speaking, being interviewed by media and of course selling lots of books.  All of this is very achievable with self-publishing.  What’s better is that it can happen in the immediate rather than distant future. read more

The Real Gains of Literary Competitions

Any talk about literary prizes invariably leads to a discussion about money. US$10,000 is given for the Pulitzer Prize, £30,000 for the Orange, and Booker Prize winners are almost always asked what they will do with the money even before they take home the £50,000 cheque. However while a monetary reward is sufficient motivation for most writers, there are other (although perhaps not as obvious) benefits of literary competitions, particularly for those entrants with less experience.

All writers struggle at times to fill the blank page, but for many emerging writers battling problems of writer’s block comes second to fears of having someone else read their work. They are often hesitant to enter competitions, fearful that their work will not be able to meet the high standard required. Yet for many writers who have taken the plunge and entered a literary competition, the gains to be had from having an objective and a qualified person read their work can be far more valuable than any prize money. ‘It was the first time that I’d shown any of my writing to anyone else,’ says Jess Baikie, one of the winners of the John Marsden Prize for Young Australian Writers last year, ‘and it gave me the confidence to share it with others and improve it’. read more
