Writing, editing, publishing, promoting and selling your books takes a lot of work. We here at Steuben Press want to help, and in this category we'll share our knowledge and stories with you!
As a self-published writer, establishing a credible reputation is key to building your fan base. Book browsers don’t want to spend their money on just any title; they want to make sure you’re the author to tell the story they want to experience.
Every writer knows how important the role of an editor is to the success of their book.
However, if you’re a self-published author, you may not have the budget or resources to afford to hire an editor. This means you’ll need the tools to self-edit your book.
If you’re a self-published author, chances are you can’t afford to hire a team to edit your book (let alone your website, blog, emails, social media posts, etc.)
For the self-publishing author, marketing your book is the only way to make sure your brilliant ideas get into the hands of the grateful reader.
In the case of at-home writer’s block, a change of scenery could be all you need to get your creativity flowing again. We’ve got some ideas for places you can explore to get away from your desk and get the words flowing again.
Kurt Vonnegut once said, “Write to please just one person. If you open a window and make love to the world, so to speak, your story will get pneumonia.”
Your book is amazing. You know that. We know that. Does anyone else know that?
Whether you have published some of your work before or this is the first book you want to put out there, you may already know that there are two ways to get published.
Getting a book deal is not easy, and if you manage to get one, it usually comes with strategic and creative restrictions and a royalty contract that may or may not satisfy you.
After months or maybe even years of work, your book is finally finished. You’re feeling great and can’t wait for the world to read your masterpiece. But how is anyone out there going to know about your book?
I’ve had three books printed by the team at Steuben Press. The folks here are generous in their advice and insights and efficient and timely in delivery. As long as this team exists, and I author books, our relationship will endure.
