Hello, fellow writers.
I'm about halfway through writing my first book - fiction...about 140 pages, so far. I'm basically a poet but had a poem that someone suggested should be expanded into a book so I took the plunge.
What I'm wondering about is the publishing process.
*Did anyone use a literary agent?
*How hard is it for a first time author to get published?
*How did you guys go about getting your first one published?
*Does anyone know anything about Tate Publishing? A Christian based company that specializes in new authors and gives 40% profits to the author.
*How long does it take, once you're accepted, to get the book printed and in the stores?
Any comments are most welcome.
Someone explain this to me:
When American companies close their U.S. factories and move them to other countries to get their product made at a lower cost, how do they expect to sell those products to the people that no longer have jobs?
