I need help publishing a book? Topic: How to write a short story book
June 15, 2019 / By Garfield
Question: I'm 13 and I write alot of poetry and short stories about life, love, happiness, relationships, drugs, alcohol, ect. Anyways, my english teacher would like for me to publish a book with all of my stories and poetry in them. How do I do that? How do I get started? I want to write a book/poetry book for troubled teens, like myself. I want it to be like Ellen Hopkins books. A regular book, but with my poetry throughout the book. I really want to do this, I just don't know how to get started..help?

Type in "publishing companies" in google and start sending a bunch of publishers your ideas and sample of your work. Make it professional like " Hello, my name is _________. I am writing to you in hopes of getting my short stories and poetry published in a book hopefully in the near future." Then talk about you stories and poetry and be sure to mention that your teacher is the one who you inspired you to reach for your dreams and try to get your book published. Attach some of your stories and poetry and hope they like it. Just make one email and send it to a bunch of different publishers, large an small. I hope this helps and I hope youre writing takes you above and beyond. (:

Agents won't contact something that's already Published (if it is a legitimate enterprise) niether will they submit matters which were positioned at the Internet. Synopsis's is ok however in the event you add chapters then no. Also with self-publishing you could have doomed your self. Your booklet is not getting at any place so that you write some thing else and procedure an Agent. They wish to understand whether or not you could have any matrerial Published, then they wish to understand whether or not it offered. Yours has no longer, they surprise why and wont be given your paintings. You must ask why your paintings hasn't offered. Self-Publishing could make or holiday you and really probably it breaks you, now you can wrestle to submit something together with your History. I cannot urge persons ample to verify each angel of Publishing and in my sincere opinion keep away from Self-publishing. Sorry to deliver you handiest dangerous information, however it isn't your booklet that wont be permitted however you as good. I cannot even let you know what to do and you can no longer get out of it I'm afraid. I'm no longer an Author myself I paintings for the 'Dark Side', persons should not be so fearful of Agents we do not chew that tough.

There is a Reference book at your local library. Writers Digest: A Writers Guide to Writing Poetry. It will tell you everything you need to know to get published. Where to send your work. How to write a cover letter. You can also check out: www.writersdigest.com for publishing ideas and contests for poets. I recommend it whole heartedly. Lastly, remember never pay anyone to publish your work. These are always scams.

Since your teacher made the suggestion, maybe she could help with ideas. It is very hard to get published however - even for seasoned writers. Writing takes lots of practice.

Send it to as many freaking publishers as you can! No, seriously. I'm not joking. BTW: I think it's great what you're doing. The world can be a cruel place sometimes. Good Luck! :D (I wish good luck to everyone... don't know why)

Beats me why would anyone would write such a book. I mean 'what if'.... Must be money is all he was after, glad someone has stepped in on that part so he won't get anything from it. The police stuffed up bad, real bad when this murder(s) was taken place, OJ is guilty, but will never serve time for it, nor be tried again in a court. I guess the police have learned more than anyone out of this case, to not tamper with evidence and leave the crime scene as is, until the proper authority's gets there. It's all just 'sad'.
