How To Sell & Publish Your Books On

It seems that one of life’s greatest mysteries is:

“How Do I Get My Own Book Published?”

Statistics show that the vast majority of people feel they have at least one book in them, but they have no idea how to find a publisher.

Thankfully since the dawn of the Internet things have become a lot easier. There are now services out there that will help you turn your own master-pieces into physical paperback, or hardback books that can be sold in the world’s biggest online market places including Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Waterstones.

In dead simple terms, here is how you do it:

1. Write the book

The first step is to write your book. I find the easiest way is to open up your favorite word processor (Microsoft Word, Open Office Writer, etc.) and get typing! If you set yourself a target of so many pages/chapters each day, you’ll be surprised at how quickly things start to take shape.

2. Format the book

Add some pictures if you wish, insert a contents page and generally “jazz up”  the layout of your book. Make each chapter start on a new page, make the main headings bold and use a different font to make them stand out just that little bit more.

If you a stuck for ideas, just read some of your favorite books and take note of how they format everything.

3. Send  the book to your publisher

Yes, you already have a publisher waiting to accept your book, and you didn’t even have to leave the PC (or MAC, I’m all for equality!) screen.

At present your book is still in digital form, so it’s known as an eBook, or e-Book depending on how pedantic you want to be. But whichever way you spell it, you need to upload your eBook to the publisher. And that’s actually pretty much it, you can now sell your book online, and the publisher will print and ship the book for you, but now the best bit.

4. How to sell your book on Amazon & Other online book stores

All you need to be able to sell your book on Amazon is an ISBN number. Again, it’s dead simple – get your publisher to do it for you!

The publisher is able to give you all the help you need when it comes to getting an ISBN number for your book, as well as selling your creation on Amazon. They’ll even take care of the distribution side of things for you!

So in 4 easy steps, that’s how you sell your book on Amazon. It can actually be done in less than an hour assuming you’ve already written your book 🙂

Of course, I’ve shown you everything in it’s most basic form, there are of course a lot more questions that you’d need answers to before you can become the next JK Rowling, things like:

  • How to generate sales of your book
  • How to find the publisher
  • How to get the ISBN number
  • The formatting limitations for a hardback/paperback book
  • What size do your images have to be?
  • How to do you make a professional front and back cover for the book?
  • How do you break into the Amazon worldwide marketplace
  • Can you use PLR (Private Label Rights) material?
  • How to turn any existing eBook into a physical book
  • And so on…
