Being able to sell your story in just a few sentences is the key to impressing agents, publishing houses and your target audience. Once you’ve completed your draft, work on penning a synopsis that sums up the story of your book succinctly.
Perfecting your writing prowess is an ongoing process, and it’ll enhance the skills that’ll make not just your first book but any subsequent titles you create huge hits.
Write as much as you can to hone your craft; who knows where those short stories, essays and other works might lead! They may even be the beginnings of your next title.
Research matters, even if you’re not busy penning a non-fiction novel. There’s lots to discover about your genre and your audience, which will stand you in good stead when editing your book and marketing your title later down the line.
So you’ve drafted, and edited and redrafted your book, what next? The editing phase is long and arduous but so worth it. You should take the time to perfect your work, and request feedback from not just proud family and friends but literary and publishing professionals just like us.

You don’t have to bow to the will of publishing houses to get published in 2022. Self-publishing unlocks a long list of rewards for would-be authors, and is now an extremely popular way to get published.
