100 Common Publishing Questions Answered

Produce more, publish quickly, market your books, build your platform, and earn more today

Written by Derek Murphy

Genre: Writing, Research & Publishing Guides




If you’re interested in publishing or self-publishing a book, 
you’ve probably got a lot of questions.

There are so many tools, resources and services offering tips and information.

How does it all work?

How do you put a book together, get it out into the world, and get people to buy it? You might have questions like...

How do I get an agent or publisher?

How do I submit a query?

How do I optimize my Amazon sales page?

How do I build an author website?

How do I convert my files to ebook?

How do get into bookstores or libraries?

How much does publishing cost?

Should I use KDP select or Smashwords?

What should I write about?

How do I get book reviews?

As someone with over 10 years in publishing experience, I get asked a lot of questions: so I decided to write them all down with quick, actionable feedback. These aren't robust, full length answers, these are short, conversational responses that will point you in the right direction.

Also keep in mind I'm a strong advocate of self-publishing, which gives authors more control, flexibility and earning power - so some of my answers may seem unconventional. But it's a brave new world, and progressive thinking authors like me are making a killing selling books.
