How to Get Published

CreateSpace

No more, “If you don’t hear from us in 8 weeks, sorry we’re not interested.”  Indie publishing is not what it used to be.  The old vanity presses charged you crazy prices to acquire inventories of your own work which often became very nice door stops.  CreateSpace is a print on demand publisher which allows you to do your own thing or hire their professionals.  You can pick and choose which services you wish to engage.  They provide newsletters every month that are very helpful.  And to top it off you have a direct pipeline to on-line marketing.  It’s a great way to take control of your own artistic endeavors.  Caution, if you don’t pay for professional editors then make sure you have a crew of “beta readers!”  There is a reason that Indie publications started out with a sub-standard reputation; make the effort to shoot for the same professionalism as a major NYC publisher would demand.
