Books For Publish

Jul 15, 2008
The procedure of production and distribution of books or other forms of literature for the public is called publishing. In some instances, the author is his own publisher. He makes his literature then finds means of media for it to be disseminated to viewers.

A book is known as a collection or a set of blank, written, illustrated, or printed sheets which are made and produced with paper and/or different materials. These materials are fastened and compiled as one in order to form a hinge in one side. In a book, a leaf is the single sheet, while its both sides are known as its page. When a book is produced through an electronic format, this type of book is called the e-book.

Books also pertain to literary works. In information science and libraries, a book is known as a monograph, where in, this is vital in order for it to be differentiated from periodicals like journals, magazines, and newspapers. Written works as well as books are called literature. In a novel, a book can be compartmentalized into different sections like Book One, Book Two, Book Three, and so on and so forth.

A book lover is called with many terms such as a philobiblist, a bibliophile, or a bibliophilist, or in layman's term, a bookworm. You can also buy books in a bookshop or bookstore. To borrow a book, you can just head on to libraries near you.

The usual book structure or parts include the following:

Front cover: soft cover (paperback) or hardbound; the one that connects the front and the rear cover is called a spine which is similar to a hinge
Front endpaper
Front matter
Title page
Copyright page
Table of contents
List of figures

Body: the main contents or texts where the pages are found. These pages have page number and are often separated into sequential chapters. Appendix

The procedure of production and distribution of literature or other information for the public is called publishing. In some instances, the author is his own publisher. He makes his literature then finds means of media so that it can be disseminated to its viewers.

There are stages in publishing a book. These stages would include the following:

* Development
* Acquisition
* Copyediting
* Graphic design
* Production (Printing or Electronic)
* Marketing
* Distribution

The following are the steps on how to get your book to be published. These are:

Step One

Look for a professional editor for the work or literature that you have done. With this procedure, you are ensured that the book that you have made is polished and refined prior to giving to the publisher or agent.

Step Two

Look for an agent who would represent you and your work. A good agent will present your literature to publishers and guide you on the process of publishing. Know the agent's experience, expected commission, interests, and recent sales before making a commitment.

Step Three

Give your query letter to various publishers whom you think would like your book best. The letter that you will send will give the description of the book that you have made and provide your reasons why it is worth publishing. Given that the publisher would look the idea of your book, they will forward a proposal to you.

Step Four

Provide the interested editors or publishers with your book proposal. Included in your book proposal is a 10 to 12 page sample, your reason for making the book as well as the author's information. For nonfictional authors, they may send a proposal before completing their book. For fictional writers, a completed manuscript is expected during query.

Step Five

Wait for the response of the editor or publishers. If the book that you have made is accepted, you'd get a monetary offer. But if not, a rejection letter will be sent out to you, together with the reason why it cannot be published.

Step Six

Keep sending query letters to publishers until you receive an offer from your publisher. The key here is to study the responses of the editors and intertwine it in your work until you find a publisher who would take interest in your work.
