How to Publish Your Book

publish your own book unconventional guide

Most of my friends (and including myself) have at some point said that we’d love to publish a novel. Since November is National Novel Writing Month and I’ve signed up for the NanoWriMo challenge, I wanted to share something that budding novelist may want to use. As you’ve seen in previous posts, I’m a huge fan of Chris Guillbeau and his micro-business philosophy.

He’s all about finding unconventional ways to make a business around the things you love and he has a guide for those hoping to get their works published. He has teamed up with David Fugate, a veteran literary agent who has sold 1,000+ books to dozens of publishers. Together they’ve created a detailed tactical and practical road-map and guide to getting it done.

As with other unconventional guides, there is a ton of information and resources that not only give you an overview of the process, but actual guides to help, including:

  • supplemental interviews
  • recordings
  • transcripts
  • sample contracts & proposals
  • Q&A with various editors

There are 3 customized versions you can get the guides, depending on just beginning on your book or if you’re getting your book out sooner. No matter which one you select, each version includes the main PDF guide and FREE updates for life.
