Have you always dreamed of being a published author? Maybe you never thought of yourself as a writer. You may imagine writing to be a life of drudgery, with weary writers hunched over thesauruses and dictionaries, painfully eking out their drafts one word at a time.
However, writing does not have to be as hard as it seems! In fact, you don’t even have to be an expert on language, grammar, or storytelling to make it big in the publishing industry. Some of the best books are written by “non-writers.” For example, maybe you specialize in implantology in dentistry. Did you realize that you can successfully publish a book or article on a topic such as that? You can! But how?
Enter the world of online publishers. What is an online publisher? Basically, it is a group, organization, or website that agrees to publish your writing for you.
Usually, such entities will have forms that you need to download and fill out first. For example, you may need to sign a copyright agreement, which may allow the publisher to retain the rights for publishing the document. Disclosure agreements are also common in order to protect the publisher’s interests. Many also require you to adhere to a guidelines document, which may specify the required criteria for your writing. The criteria often involves things such as style and tone, which enables the publisher to make sure that your work fits in with the other works published.
Once all the paperwork is complete, simply create an account and upload your document. Viola! Within a short time, you can be a published writer. Of course, the publishers may edit your document, and they may ask for you to rework it before they publish it if there are major changes needed. However, even if this happens, it is worth the extra little bit of effort to get it right. Then you, too, can add the title “published writer” to your list of credentials.
