How to publish your book? Advice for aspiring writers by Author R K Mohapatra
The aspiring writer should comprehend the publication process in three different ways: publishing the book through registered publishers, self-publishing on one’s own dime, and self-publishing with the assistance of a publisher.
The first option to publish a book for a new author is challenging since publishers won’t put any money into an author who doesn’t have any market value or recognition. The author of the second category will publish the book and obtain all necessary regulatory approvals by himself. In the third category, the writer chooses a self-publishing package and signs an agreement with the publisher, and the publisher will publish the book accordingly. Typically, the third option is chosen by all aspiring writers.
The second and third methods may make it simple to publish a book, but bookselling is more difficult.
Young authors should ensure that their writing has a clear message for the reader. It should contain straightforward language and be topic-specific. A good and appealing book cover will increase your sales and readership. Pick a brief, expressive book title. Fill it with drama, threat, and meaning. Because it will make it easier for readers to find you while searching on Kindle, desktop, or mobile devices, it should be short & simple.
Write on a subject about which you are knowledgeable and confident. If you’re unsure, don’t provide your audience with inaccurate information. If you accidentally mention something, it is best to apologize. It will add value to society. Your strengths, which add value to you, are your work, attitude, knowledge, and skill. A self-publishing author should be aware of it from the beginning.
Modern technology allows aspiring authors to spread their writing around the globe. Now, writers can publish their work on video as well. In order to reach the target audience, he must do the required preparations and design a strategic plan. Try to promote your book via social media, online media outlets, or display boards and become a bestseller.

What are the golden rules of book publishing for a debut author? Answers Ubbay Francis
- Create unique content in the language of people. Catering to the mass is the key, instead of the class
- Publish your book using a self publishing method with a good and reputed publisher. There are some book publishers who are just making money and do not offer good quality. You need to be smart and ask the previous authors of your publication about their experiences.
- The most important thing is to connect with the right people to identify the right way ahead and when you want to publish your book. Your book may be the best creation ever but it won’t create any impact unless it is marketed well. The best marketing agency for books in India is certainly Digital Golgappa as per my choice.
- Remember, being a bestseller is easy but creating an impact is tough. Focus on the long term goals.
