I am just finishing my first fiction novel and want to start finding out how to get it published. I have googled the relevant articles and done some research.
Specifically, I am now looking for good freelance editors and book cover designers. So, first, if anyone can help me putting in touch with relevant people in these categories (or related ones in the world pf publishing), I would be very thankful.
Next, would love to touch base with any of you who have got your work published to get some tips. Self-publishing seems to be a rising trend but for now, I’m trying to stick to traditional methods to increase the exposure.
Also, I was considering kickstarter to help get the work published but not sure if its a good idea for Indian projects. Any thoughts? In a tech entrepreneurial spirit, I’m trying to find innovative ways to promote the work online and would love to hear any comments. I would at least put up a site with sample chapters and an introductory story so that I can start building some engagement.
Lastly, would love to get feedback on a sample chapter, so if you are willing to read a small 1400 words chapter and give your comments, please leave a message and I’ll send it to you.
Thanks and I hope you had a colorful Holi!
P.S. I’m updating this post to add some helpful resources I found online-
