Nowadays, many authors are shifting towards self-publishing from traditional publishing due to the benefits it offers.
A few years ago getting your manuscript published was a daunting task. Getting a good agent and a decent deal with a reputed publishing house was considered to be a matter of luck. However, times have changed in the publishing industry.
So, if you are also planning to self-publish your book, here’s a quick guide on how to navigate the self-publishing process.
Choose a plan
First, research the best self-publishers in India. Choose the publisher that fits your needs and budget. For this, you need to compare and assess the various publishing packages offered. And, then decide which package can offer you the best services at a reasonable price.
Submit the manuscript
Submitting your manuscript is the final step towards having your book published. Your manuscript and all the supporting materials like solutions manual, test bank, website, etc., should be sent in an electronic format for review. There is no need to submit your hard copy unless you are requested to do so by the editor.
Review the final copy
This is the final stage of the book publishing process. Once the editing, copywriting, proofreading, and book cover designing tasks are done. The author sends the final copy of the book for review. Eventually, the author can mark the required changes on the final copy by using the track changes tool.
The publishing company does the required changes and after the final revision by the author, the book gets ready for publication. Reviewing process is crucial to ensure the quality of your book.
