I’ve got a great idea for a book. How could I get published?

There’s no magic formula for achieving success in the writing world and I’m still learning myself.  Here are a few things I’ve discovered:

  •  It helps to network; join a local writers’ group and gain insight from like-minded people
  • Join the online community of writers and make use of the resources, information, courses, programs and wisdom they have available.  I like:

Varuna the Writers House                       www.varuna.com.au

Australian Society of Authors                https://www.asauthors.org/

Australian Writer’s Marketplace           https://www.awmonline.com.au

NSW Writer’s Centre                                  http://www.nswwc.org.au/

  • Read lots – Read the kind of stuff you like to write.
  • Do your research and take notice of the publishers who publish the type of story you’re writing.
  • Don’t give up… if you think you’ve got something really special then don’t let a rejection letter stop you!
