If there is a book that you want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it – Toni Morrison.

Writerpreneur is someone a lot more than just a writer who makes money from her writing. A writerpreneur is a writer who has an entrepreneurial mindset and sees opportunity in using her creative gifts to earn an income. According to Wikipedia, every year, around 800,000 books were published in the English language last year. This makes it almost 2200 books published every day. Now imagine, with such a great churn and so much noise, how can an author market his/her book effectively? The answer is Self-publishing.

Writing is traditionally a creative venture; a vocation that requires anguish, insomnia, and many more hindrances.  Writers are generally not known for their brilliant business and marketing skills; that was always the job of the traditional publisher, but in this new world of self-publishing and self-promoting, great writing alone is not going to make it.

When you are producing and selling a product and competing for customers, and the customers don’t know you’re there unless you advertise yourself. Traditional publishing largely spared the author the burden of promoting their work, but the author paid a high price for that service, sacrificing a major portion of the royalties.  Self-publishing allows much more author control and a larger portion of the profits.

The Self Publishing Cycle

Self-publishing is the fastest growing segment of the publishing industry; authors find it attractive for many reasons. Unlike using traditional publishing companies, self-publishing allows the author to be in control of the entire creative and selling process. Sapna Ink’s offers a wide opportunity to self-publishers without any hesitation. It provides various platforms for authors, and offers nothing less than the best!

Step one: Write

It all starts with putting down the creativity flow into words. Once you pick your genre, you just go on with the thoughts as it takes you. There may be minor hindrances like writer’s block as such. Pay no heed and power through.

Step two: Edit

Writing without editing is like getting dressed with your eyes closed, and then leaving the house without looking in the mirror. When drafting, the writer’s focus in inherently narrowed, he/she is focused on expressing the idea more and not on the colons or semicolons, pacing and stylistic consistency. Editing is as important to the vision and message of your book. Good editing will enable your book to shine and will set you apart.

Step three: Proofread

The proofreading process of self-publishing is one of the most crucial steps that should not be overlooked.  Proofreading is the last step that can enhance the author’s reputation for how hard they have worked. Quality proofreading can transform your work into a form of art. This includes changing any spelling or grammatical errors that may have been made. It also involves finding any inconsistencies within the text and verifying facts.

Step Four: Design

A design has a tremendous impact on a book’s appeal and marketability. There are two parts to your book design: the cover and the interior. Bookshops display books with their covers facing the reader. It’s the first thing a reader sees. It is the reason a customer picks up the book, particularly in a supermarket setting where every book is front facing. Even the author can be recognized not only by the letters spelled out but by the font, the style of cover, composition, the look of a series.

Step Five: Production

Once the book has been edited and designed, it will be ready to go off to the production stage. This stage will be responsible for printing and binding it and arranging for its delivery to the publisher’s warehouse.

Step Six: Distribute

Distribution has always been one of the more complex aspects of book publishing, your book must be available for readers to buy, and you’ll want them to be available through every possible channel. The power of distribution when paired with flexible pricing creates an advantageous sales combination for the self-publishing author.

 Step Seven: Publicity

Books can generate more sales if the reader can associate it with the author. Like with any business that has a brand, authors must create a brand for themselves. Having a unique book cover, producing reviews, and creating a social media profiles for your book are all effective book marketing strategies. But, when you combine them with author promotion techniques, you can achieve much more success.

10 steps to publishing a book

  1. Build your idea.

Come up with an idea and keep it as original as possible. Publishing data shows that there are only a few kinds of stories, but an engaging twist to it makes all the different.

  1. Think about your story

Once you have an idea, look at it from different angles. You should be able to answer any question about your story, characters, plot, the progression of the story or its cohesion.

  1. Outline your story

Once you have your story with characters, plot et al, write an outline. Break it down into parts without detailing too many aspects. Cohesion and flow are things to focus on at this juncture. 

  1. Time to draft

Write everything you have to write at this point. It’s alright if you deviate from the plot as long as the characters move towards the intended goal and the story adds up.

  1. Edit for grammar

Editing is one of the biggest, most important steps to writing a book and getting it published. Expect to be editing over and over: spelling, grammar, trimming the fat, tie up loose ends. Read dialogues out loud to make sure they sound right.

  1. Edit for style

Tweak your language according to the situation in the story. Using Ks and Fs for fights, Ss and Ls for romance are ways to express the intended emotion. Using discretion with this tool is advised.

  1. Edit again

Now edit for sentence formation such as active and passive voice. Now is also the time to approach a professional or an online editor.

  1. Get a second opinion

Ask a trusted person to read your edited draft. This will highlight errors you might have missed.

  1. Think about Publishing

Consider your options to publish your book. You could approach a publishing house that has its own advantages, or self-publish which gives you so much more freedom.

  1. Publish your book

Once you’ve chosen how to show the world your work of art, go ahead with it. Don’t forget those book signing events and talks that are so important to get attention.

Although the road to publishing a book might seem arduous, the result is immensely satisfying. Don’t lose hope! There are plenty of services and tools that simplify the process for you.
