Selecting a Publisher

If you’ve gone through the trouble of writing a book, it’s only fair that you also try to find the most suitable publisher for it. You should give some thought to your alternatives before settling on a publisher for your book, whether you want to self-publish or submit it to a small press. Here are a few things to think about while looking for a publisher.

The contract should be properly read. If you have any questions about the deal, you should have an attorney look it over. Pay attention to the rights, fees, and costs (if any). Where do your rights to your works stand legally? What legal recourse does the publisher exercise? How much do you use the books you buy both for your own reading and for reviews? Do authors offer deals if you need more? When do you typically get royalties?

Or, the books are printed “as is,” without any kind of editing or proofreading. Are there extra costs associated with editing or proofreading? Who does the editing if help with editing is given? What background do they possess? To gauge the quality of the editing, you may choose to read various books written by different writers and published by the same publisher. You can think about utilizing the editing service or hiring a freelance editor to proofread your work for you before publication if the publisher has an open submissions policy but does not provide editing. Infrequently one comes across a writer who requires zero revisions.

Marketing Benefits What kind of exposure do the magazine’s authors get? Can it set up interviews with the press? Are any of your advertising expenditures reimbursable? Does their website let customers talk to them in real time? Is there a mailing list or a section for media contacts where you can tell people about your book? What happens to review copies after they have been read? How does the publisher present its newest books? When working with a subsidised publisher, you may be able to sign a “publish only” deal, which means that you are responsible for all marketing and promotion. This strategy is OK, but make sure you are aware of the organization’s rules to avoid disappointment.

Book Cost. How much do you plan to charge for your book when it comes out? How much would people have to pay to buy your book? How does the price compare to similar books at large stores? You think it’s too much, don’t you? If the publisher already has deals with stores, would the price of your book change depending on whether you bought it in their store or from an online store? Are you able to decide the pricing yourself while self-publishing? The marketing approach used by the publishing house. Is there a place to buy books? Where can this be found? How crowded is it, on average? Is there a bestsellers list for it?
