Tips to overcome your Self-Publishing Fears

sapna ink

Do you have Self-Publishing fears? No one else will write your book for you. Most of the best selling self-published authors admit about not having any experience before they started. There isn’t special “code to success”. Here are some tips for you.

Test It : Writing is a kind of intensely private experience, which can be happily shared. Showing someone your work, can make you feel vulnerable. If you are facing this problem or fear, it means you aren’t ready to share your writing.

To overcome this, create a blog where you upload your creative writing, flash fiction, small poems. It will be published for anyone to see and comment on it. You could also submit articles for magazines. Do not worry about the rejections. Every writing comes with rejection at some point.

Interact : Interact with the self-publishing  community people. Speaking your ideas will make them to have a clear idea about your writings. They may tell you, if they think about some place in the market for your book . Talk to the book sellers. They know what sells well and which are popular. Talk to the readers. Search for readers online – like on some social pages, Pinterest and check for what they talk or chat about other similar authors and their blogs. Draft content for them and make them to read your article.

Build Confidence : Never think about negative feedback. “What if no readers likes my story / book”. Most of the new self-publishing authors will worry about trusting. That is passing the projects to other people (that is publishers). But it is an important process if you want a professional author career. By collaborating with publishers you ensure that you give your book / story what it deserves with industry standards.

To reduce your fears on self-publishing, trust your gut with the help you decided to go for. Check for the publisher’s customer service, verify whether they show their process by stage, view their previous work or their sample work. These analysis will help you get rid off the anxieties at handing over your precious manuscripts to them.

Self-Publishing your book is a learning process. You will make mistakes along the way, but it will help you to get information and guidance. And it is a good idea to learn from the successful writers in the industry. Visit www.sapnaink.com and get some expert guidance on your first novel.

We, Sapna INK welcome writing projects at all stages of the process. Check out the testimonial about us, from the authors of the industry and be sure that your book is in safe hands.

Writing Your first Novel ?

14045643_1089037391132378_6817253828853678442_n

Here are some points for you from a best selling author :

  1. Stop planning, start writing :

Do not spend decades of time on thinking about writing novels. Just start writing. Which group you belong to ? Talking about writing a novel or who actually do it.

  1. Draft a mission statement

Write a mission statement and follow that to complete writing. Draft a contract for yourself. Complete the mission with the contract on mind. Keep the motivating words in your contract -” Start”, “Finish”, “Publish”, “WIthin a year”. These will help you to set up a goal or deadline. Take the process seriously.

  1. The Secret – is writing

You can not crack a perfect prose daily. But it is important to keep practicing it everyday. Sometimes bad writing eventually leads to good writing and paragraphs eventually add up to pages and it will lead to a finished novel.

  1. Write with your eraser ( or delete / backspace button)

Write the characters, chapters and situations. You will complete it by 800 – 1000 pages. When you finish the book it will come to 250 – 350 pages. It may hurt for every omission or deletion. But the finished book – the final one is better for all the cuts.

  1. There is no 1 right way to write

Some writers will decide about the characters and situations on the novel. But it is not mandatory to have the characters or ideas in advance to start a novel. Sometimes the character itself will take you to the next level of the novel. The situations in the novel itself will guide us to take a lead from it to proceed further.

  1. Milestones of your writing process – Celebrate it.

Once you have completed a chapter or finished drafting, celebrate that moment to encourage yourself. Uncork a bottle of Champagne. When you finalize and finished drafting take yourself and some important people in your writing process out for dinner.

When you have finished the manuscripts, bring it to us – Sapna INK, we will transform it to you a best novel / book of you. The added advantage of publishing with Sapna INK is, your book is displayed for a wide range of readers, viewers in all the platforms of Sapna.

Sanjay Koppikar – One Man Many Roles

Sanjay Koppikar  is a Bangalore based entrepreneur, author, storyteller. From the city of Dharwad, Karnataka; Sanjay has nearly 25 years of experience in different areas of IT industry. SapnaINK shares some titbit about his upcoming book which is a SciFi thriller based on Nano technology along with his journey as a writer, his inspiration and much more…

  • Tell us about your latest book?
    The story covers a personal account of a Young Doctor as she meets a brilliant scientist working on a Nano Technology project. The story uncovers the greater impact his inventions across the health care system and his challenge of leveraging it to his advantage or greater good; her dilemma between two men in her life; and an army general’s dilemma of saving the nation by fighting his own colleagues to save them from an imminent disaster.
  • When and why did you begin writing this novel?
    This story came to me in 2011 while I was waiting for my flight from Delhi. I wrote the entire synopsis on my Blackberry while I was in the flight and sent it as a mail to my wife! Then I started writing it later part of 2011 and then after multiple re-writes and reviews, it got frozen in later part of 2015.
  • When did you first consider yourself a writer?
    I am not sure if I still consider myself as a writer. I consider myself more of a storyteller that managed to write something finally. I keep creating a lot of stories in my mind to keep myself and my family/friends amused. Some of them turn out to be good and then they force me to write it in to a novel!

CAM01377.jpg

  • What inspired you to write your first book?
    First published book, “Bangalored”, was an interesting case. I had a lot of data to show how Bangalore was growing in to its own peril of self-destruction. Land grab, greed, jumping jobs in IT, water crisis, traffic and many more was growing making Bangalore lose its moral as well as physical strength as a strong city. And I saw our own hand in creating this monster! Each one of us were at the root of these problems in some form or the other.
    Instead of publishing this as a non-fiction based on statistics, I thought of a story that represented the growth and the decline with our part in it. And since I am an eternal optimist, I had to put the brighter side of it. And I did.
  • How did you come up with the title?
    The current book ‘Divided Minds’ was suggested by our friend and an author. Since this book had so many situations where dilemma of the mind was at its paramount – we had to show this even in the title. It fit wonderfully well.
  • Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?
    No ‘moral of the story’ as such! But it is a scifi turned in to simple to read fiction which even a non-sci-fi reader would enjoy.
    But the inventions created in this book has been a phenomenal one as I found an Israel company trying to emulate a similar technology!
  • What books have most influenced your life most?
    Many books have influenced me over the years. One of the most important books for me has been ‘7 Habits of highly effective people’ by Stephen Covey.
  • If you had to choose, which writer would you consider a mentor?
    I am not sure – I get excited by any good story! May be life, if personified, itself as an author is the most influential part in any author’s life, I suppose!
    If given a chance, may be it would be Dan Brown. I would love to learn how he creates the pressure and scene around you just using those words
  • Are there any new authors that have grasped your interest?
    Indian authors, yes – Amish and Ashwin Sanghi are few of them for sure.
  • If you had to do it all over again, would you change anything in your latest book?
    I am not sure as I had taken so much of time to change it multiple times! Yes – I would have loved to put more action and pace in it than what it already has. If I had done it, it would have been a Hollywood action movie!
  • Do you recall how your interest in writing originated?
    We as a family have always been interested in storytelling and writing. My mom wrote some. My elder sister wrote quite often too. Most importantly, I had a neighbor who was a phenomenal storyteller – Mr.Ganesh Burde. He never published his book, by the way! But he wrote it just for himself and his admirers. He created stories of virtually anything! That was I think what rubbed me for good.
  • Do you have to travel much concerning your book(s)?
    Yes and no. I travel much – yes. But haven’t done that yet for a book. Since I run a software company as a CEO, I travel a lot. But that gives me a lot of time to write while on travel.
    One of my next planned books is a travelogue based on one girl’s real life experiences. So I may plan to travel as well for that.
  • What was the hardest part of writing your book?
    Reviewing! Every time I reviewed, I felt something was missing! Hence, it kept changing its shape and form. Hence, you had to realign everything once again with the changed perspective. That took a long time for me for both of my books. It took at least 4 years to take shape and come out!
  • Did you learn anything from writing your book and what was it?
    A lot. Starting with simple grammar to start with; while editing the book my editors and reviewers gave a lot of feedback on the use of proper language!
    Every topic needs a lot of background study for correctness when we publish – even though they are works of fiction.
    For example, in this book, Divided Minds, I had to imagine a Nanobot that would be injected into bloodstream! To make it feel real, I had to understand what is being done in the field, how will the Nanobot get its power, how does it communicate, how will it adjust with the WBC once introduced etc.
    In the next book that is under writing called ‘My Dream Job’, I have to study a lot about mental illness including sleep disorder, depression, dual personality syndrome, schizophrenia among lot of other things.
  • Do you have any advice for other writers?
    Being an Entrepreneur since I was 18 years old, I see everything as a startup. For me, each of the books I write is a startup that I co-found it with my editors, reviewers, publishers, marketing team etc. That,then becomes an important product to be consumed by readers. Hence, feedback becomes an important aspect. That becomes your ingredient and learning for the next startup – in other words your next book.
  • Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers?
    I hope people like this book. I would request them to read and more importantly, let me know their thoughts regardless of their praise or criticism. They’ll help me grow as an author and a storyteller. I have already discussed a sequel for the book, if I get a favorable response. The sequel takes the concept to a new level altogether with much bigger shock value!

 

We publish your book! Yes, we do.
