What sites can I go to learn about book publishing?

I’m writing a book, and I need help out sites that do publishing affordable at that.. if possible?

Number one–it doesn’t cost anything to get published! :>)

You send your book in to a legit publisher. If they like your work, they buy if from you and publish it and get it into stores.

YOG’S LAW: MONEY FLOWS TOWARD THE WRITER.

The only place a writer signs a check is on the back, to endorse it!

This site is a SAFE writer’s board run by pros. It is free and they can help you stay clear of the sharks in the publishing pool.

Visit the 808 section of your library, as it has all the books on writing and how to get professionally published. You need to give yourself a 101 course in publishing so you don’t get ripped off by the bad guys. There are a LOT of them.

To find a legit publisher, go to a bookstore. Find books like yours. Look inside the front pages to get the publishers’ websites. Follow their submission guidelines to the letter.

Look up websites of writers with work similar to your own. See if they mention who reps for them. A short polite mail asking if they can recommend an agent is not out of place. Do not tell them about your book, that’s seen as poor manners.

The links below will help keep you safe!

DO NOT GO TO WORTHY OF PUBLISHING. It is a complete waste of time and effort and can mess up your chance of getting published. Here’s a warning from the watchdog group "Writer Beware":

DO NOT USE PublishAmerica. They’re the worst ripoff site of all. Just Google their name + "scam" for the horror stories.

Good luck!!
