How to Publish a Book

The advantages of self-publishing and traditional publishing

You’ve finished writing a book, and you want to publish it.
Fortunately, there are only two ways of marketing your new book: self-publishing it or selling your book to a publisher.

Today, it’s easier to sell your own book. The digital channels have been improved, and readers are turning into e-book readers.

There are several digital formats in which your brand new work can be transformed in. The simpler one is, obviously, plain text. But you deserve better.

Formats like .PDF, ePub, HTML, Mobipocket, Kindle, Multimedia eBook, Newton Book, eReader, Plucker and Post Script will be able to spread the number of readers you will have on several platforms.

The advantages of self-publishing are many. If you publish your own book, you won’t get rejections from trade publishers, you will increase the revenues from the book sales and you can quickly put it out on the market.

Amazon, for example, has created an online book publishing label that will get your new book sold in wider markets, reaching millions of electronic readers.

In conclusion, self-publishing lets you control the content, pagination, design, format, price, rights, marketing and communication of your latest book.

Of course, there’s always the traditional book publishing way, in which a third party handles almost all the process.

Classic publishing companies take care of it all. Also, you have the privilege and pleasure of touching a book and its pages. Seeing your favorite book in the bookshelves is always an exciting moment.

Publishing firms may also get you a check for signing or an advance on future book sales. The best way of getting a good publishing company is by listing all national businesses and getting them a copy of your work.

Later, analyze the best offers and make sure they’re promoting your book in a wide variety of channels, from newspapers and TV to social networks and blogs.

Make a decision and become a best-seller.

When to Write a Book?

Inspiration is the key ingredient for writing a best-selling book

Books were made for being written, published and sold. The greatest books of all time have been developed in crucial moments of the history of the civilizations, or in the most important dates in the life of men and women. Writers get inspired by life, humans, animals, Nature and objects.

But, is there a particular hour of the day to write a book?
The answer is “yes”. And there’s more. Books result of a desire to share ideas, beliefs, knowledge and feelings. The trigger for book writers is often an emotional event – birth, death, change, trauma – or a rational event – to teach, to mark history, to share knowledge.

So, if you’re about to write the first book of your life, try to feel when it’s time to grab the pen or hit the computer keyboard. Technically, and from a medical point of view, writing a book is easier after the early morning coffee.

Human brains are “fresher” in the morning, after a good night sleep. It’s easier to coordinate and manage ideas with the early sun rays. Of course, many well known Nobel Prize writers have already explained why nighttime is the best time to write a book.

Writing a book late in the night is an inspiring thing for many best-selling writers and book lovers. The silence and the dark of the night are regularly cited as the best moments of the day to produce a passionate book.

Regular physical exercise and nutrition help focus on the writing task.

Also, try to schedule a flexible agenda to keep the writing pace alive. You do not want to force your inspirational drive, but pragmatism and effectiveness are very important rules.

Setting a timer can also be useful unless you’re really doing very well. Planning 45-minute sessions of writing, before a 10-minute break, is a good advice. Writing a book shouldn’t be an exhausting marathon.

Words and characters will flow. Whether you’re writing a novel, a romance, a historical fiction book or a biography, make sure you set some fair rules. Socialize with family and friends, walk the dog and sleep seven hours.

In the next day, before starting your writing session, take a quick look at yesterday’s phrases and connect with the new ideas. Inspiration for writing books is all about timing.

How to Write a Book

Learn the basic steps towards a best-selling book

Writing a book involves work and method. New writers have always raised the question: how do you write a book?

Fortunately, writing is something anybody can. A book is a collection of ideas, memories, thoughts and emotions. There are many ways of getting a new book on the shelves of the world’s largest bookshops.

To start writing a book, you don’t need a title, index or summary. You can start writing simply because you’ve had a few interesting ideas. Why don’t you take notes? If you’re having your first morning coffee, go ahead and write down a few topics or complete paragraphs.

A white book page can be written anywhere and anytime. If you’re not in a hurry to get that book finished, you can let time inspire your own words. Some people prefer to write down short phrases so that longer ideas can come later.

It is also very important to believe in what you’re doing. Writing a book is a personal view, so your words should express your beliefs. Don’t judge yourself and your words. Get going.

There is also an excellent method for writers who enjoy organization and discipline. Here are the basic steps to writing a book with a well-structured plan:

1. Find a title that suits the overall book summary idea. Now, you’ve got a provisional title.
2. Write a brief book summary that may tell the story of your work in two paragraphs.
3. List several chapters and sub-chapters that may get into your book.
4. Start writing the first words and lines of your book from the beginning.
5. As soon as your book gets a good writing rhythm, review your provisional index and correct what you think should be fixed.
6. Manage your writing times. Try to identify the best moments for pushing your new book forward. Is it after lunch? Does your pen flow better at night?
7. Never miss an idea. The worst times may enlighten you with a few thoughts. Write them down on your computer, mobile phone or Moleskine.
8. Keep the writing pace. If you feel you’re doing well by writing two A4 pages per day, try to discipline yourself to this writing rhythm.
9. Do not set a pre-defined number of pages for your book. There is no magic number. Less is more.
10. Re-read and review your book draft once finished, but only one week after writing your last sentence.

Writer’s block only happens in the mind. Yes, you can write a book and yes, you can write a best-selling book. Go for it and let your ideas flow free. A book has a beginning and an end.

I get so nervous on stage I can’t help but talk. I try. I try telling my brain: stop sending words to the mouth. But I get nervous and turn into my grandma. Behind the eyes it’s pure fear. I find it difficult to believe I’m going to be able to deliver.

I got some fan mail recently. It was a crispy tissue. How fucking inappropriate is that shit? A 22 year old girl, how fucking inappropriate.

And I was like, yeah, I’m really going to come and fucking come for dinner with you and you’re wanking into a tissue and I haven’t even met you. Ha! So disgusting!

I just want to make music, I don’t want people to talk about me. All I’ve ever wanted to do was sing. I don’t want to be a celebrity. I don’t want to be in people’s faces, you know, constantly on covers of magazine that I haven’t even known I’m on.

I was adopting an Ethiopian child, that’s not true. My house was haunted, that wasn’t true. God, there’s been so many rumors.

I was always the joker at school. But I didn’t really realize I had a natural sense of humor until I started telling stories onstage. You get the timing down. Also, people laugh when I open my mouth anyway, even if I don’t tell a joke, because they are laughing at my accent.

If I am constantly working, my relationships fail. So at least now I can have enough time to write a happy record. And be in love and be happy. And then I don’t know what I’ll do. Get married. Have some kids. Plant a nice vegetable patch.

If I lost loads of weight, my tits would go saggy and then that would be the main issue.

I’m like Johnny Cash. I only wear black.

I’m like the opposite of one of those comedians who’s funny on stage and depressed behind closed doors.

I’m nervous whenever I perform.

I’m not calling Beyonce old, even though she is contemporary, she is also a veteran.

I’m not going to write an egotistical record. Nobody can relate to winning two Grammys, unless it is another artist, you know. No one wants to hear a record about hotels and air miles. No one else is going to find that interesting. I’ve heard records like that. I’ve heard self-obsessed second records and I don’t like them.

I’m scared of audiences. One show in Amsterdam I was so nervous I escaped out the fire exit. I’ve thrown up a couple of times. Once in Brussels I projectile vomited on someone. I just got to bear it. But I don’t like touring. I have anxiety attacks a lot.

In five years’ time I’d like to be a mum. I want to settle down and have a family, definitely sooner rather than later. I’d like to have finished my second album too, maybe even my third. I’d like a sound that sticks around that other people are inspired by and that people know is me.

In the songs I can still be really direct but in interviews when I’m explaining my songs I shouldn’t be so direct about who they’re about.

It broke my heart when I wrote this record, so the fact that people are taking it to their hearts is like the best way to recover.’

It’s never been an issue for me – I don’t want to go on a diet, I don’t want to eat a Caesar salad with no dressing, why would I do that? I ain’t got time for this, just be happy and don’t be stupid. If I’ve got a boyfriend and he loves my body then I’m not worried.

It’s the blues so I will go out of tune, but it’s all right, its all good.

It’s warts and all in my songs, and I think that’s why people can relate to them.

I’ve always been a size 14-16. I’m not going to lose weight because someone tells me to. People don’t need to use their bodies sexually to do well. If anyone told me to lose weight, I wouldn’t work with them any more. I don’t want to go on a diet; I don’t want to eat a Caesar salad with no dressing. Why would I do that? Just be happy and don’t be stupid.

I’ve been singing properly every day since I was about fifteen or sixteen, and I have never had any problems with my voice, ever. I’ve had a sore throat here and there, had a cold and sung through it, but that day it just went while I was onstage in Paris during a radio show. It was literally like someone had pulled a curtain over it.

I’ve got some news… I’m delighted to announce that Simon and I are expecting our first child together. I wanted you to hear the news direct from me, obviously we’re over the moon.

I’ve learned the main thing in life is that you get what you put in.

I’ve never been more normal than I am now.

I’ve never seen magazine covers or music videos and been like, ‘I need to look like that if I want to be a success.’ I’ve never seen pictures of hot men and thought, ‘I have to change what I look like if I want to be with them.’ I don’t even need to if I want to sell more records. It’s not stopping me from doing anything and I don’t find that kind of thing attractive. I’ve never wanted to look like models on the cover of magazines. I represent the majority of women and I’m very proud of that.

I’ve only flown first class once, I drank so much free red wine I threw up in the toilet.

Making a record is like standing in the middle of Trafalgar Square naked, you let everyone see your good bits and bad bits. I don’t know what possesses me to do that, but I’m not good at anything else.

Mum loves me being famous! She is so excited and proud, as she had me so young and couldn’t support me, so I am living her dream, it’s sweeter for both of us. It’s her 40th birthday soon and I’m going to buy her 40 presents.

My best friend Laura, is like Tina Fey on steroids.

My body doesn’t have any rhythm, you know. I’ve got quite good rhythm when I’m singing but my feet are very much two left feet.

My life is full of drama and I won’t have time to worry about something as petty as what I look like.

My mom calls me jenny when I’m out in public.

My motto is that you shouldn’t kind of fuck me over.

My mum lives with me!

My voice went recently, never happened before, off like a tap. I had to sit in silence for nine days, chalkboard around my neck. Like an old-school mime. Like a kid in the naughty corner. Like a Victorian mute.

No matter what you look like, I think the key is to be happy with yourself. Exploiting yourself sexually is not a good look. People are starting to go on about my weight but I’m not going to change my size because they don’t like the way I look. People think that I’m fucking miserable. They are really surprised when they meet me that I’m chatty and bubbly and kind of quite carefree really. I’m the total opposite of my records.

Shabby, that’s how I describe myself.

Smoking is my thing.

So at 30 I’ll have my first bah-bee, be married, have a really nice three-storey family house in Clapham with a little picket fence and be writing songs for pop tarts.

The focus on my appearance has really surprised me. I’ve always been a size 14 to 16, I don’t care about clothes, I’d rather spend my money on cigarettes and booze.

The way I write my songs is that I have to believe what I’m writing about, and that’s why they always end up being so personal – because the kind of artists I like, they convince me, they totally win me over straight away in that thing. Like, ‘Oh my God, this song is totally about me.’

There is nothing that would upset me more than my dad being bribed by the press. It’s like, ‘Just let them run it, then. Don’t you give them ammunition.’

There’s nothing more beautiful then a cuddle.

This one’s about my ex… oh don’t worry, I’m playing The Greek, where the fuck is he?

Were not friends. That’s why were not together. So I don’t really care.

When I’m not singing on stage I’m usually loud and mouthy.

You can’t complain about your dressing room or you’ll look like Celine Dion.

You know when you love someone and they don’t love you? It’s the worst feeling ever. Isn’t it?
