How To Get Published
After writing- the next step is to edit. Read and re-read then let your friends and family read! Try not to be offended by corrections on the story or grammar. Until you have edited repeatedly- you do not have a finished manuscript!
When you have a completed work, find publishers and agents to send your work to. Google is an amazing resource and there are many blogs dedicated on who to send your manuscript to.
This leads to the next step! DO NOT DESPAIR!! There are many options even if you get rejected!
Every road to getting published is different. Do not compare your own story to others.
Please submit to us and even if Abner Publishing were to reject your manuscript we will be glad to give you feedback on what we think your next step should be!

This article on HOW TO GET MY BOOK PUBLISHED- The 7 Step Plan is a wonderful article by Antonio del Drago. This is only step number one- so if you want more go HERE!
Upon the publication of my first book, other authors asked me how I accomplished this feat. As it turns out, many writers see getting published as a herculean, almost insurmountable goal. But as with any major undertaking, breaking it down into manageable steps makes the process far less daunting.
For this reason, I drew up a step by step plan for authors who are wondering how to get published. Although these steps are based on my own experience, they are applicable for most authors. So without further ado, here is my seven step plan for getting published:
1. Polish Your Novel Before sending your novel off to publishers, you want it to be in top shape. To make this happen, the key ingredient is time. After finishing your book, set the manuscript aside for two weeks minimum. If possible, wait at least a month. And then go back to it and start revising.

We at Abner Publishing encourage you to read other authors and blogs to sharpen your own skills and be the best writer you are capable of being! Also- when you know the ropes a little better and submit your work accordingly- people take notice!

Dear Writer, Congratulations on your decision to pursue publication. As a literary agent, I’m not able to help you until you’ve created the appropriate materials:
→ If you’re a non-fiction writer, you’ll need a full professional book proposal, with three sample chapters (this must include the FIRST chapter). (See How To Write a Book Proposal)
→ If you’re writing fiction, your manuscript must be complete, edited and polished; you also need a one-sentence hook and a one-paragraph pitch.
