How to Publish a Book
Publishing a book used to be a long, drawn-out process, requiring literary agents or endorsement to even get your
book through a publishing house’s door. Even then there was only a small chance of your book being approved for
publishing, much less still being recognizable as your book following mandated edits and rewrites.
Notice we said ‘used to be.’
Now, it is possible to get your book published with five easy steps. All the while still maintaining both your
copyright and your creative control over your book.
