Never, Ever Release Any Of Your Rights To Anyone

Written by Bob McElwain

The bottom line? You have just lost a shot atrepparttar big time. You get to start over with a new book. And you'll probably have to hunt up another agent as well.

Why Risk it?

Don't sell or release any of your rights to any of your work until absolutely convinced it is not salable to a major print publisher. Then, and only then, should you consider taking it torepparttar 129315 Web and seeing what you can make happen.

A Case In Point

I finished "They Who Betray" (available on this site) in late 1991. I gave up trying to sell it in 1994. Even earlier, it was obvious major houses were no longer interested in this kind of tale. The manuscript has been dozing on various computer disks ever since.

While I'd love to have sold it to Pocket Book, I wasn't able to. So off torepparttar 129316 Web I have gone. I'm excited aboutrepparttar 129317 possibilities. While fame and glory is unlikely to be obtained, lots of people will find they likerepparttar 129318 tale. And that will be a win for me, any way you look at it.

But I would never have made this move had I believed there was even a chance of selling it to a major house. If you're serious about your writing career, you'll followrepparttar 129319 same path. Head forrepparttar 129320 Web asrepparttar 129321 last resort, never asrepparttar 129322 starting point.

One Exception

All who climb a mountain do not hunger to become a noted mountaineer. And all who write a book, do not yearn to be an established author. So if you wrote a book forrepparttar 129323 fun of it, and now want to share it with family and friends, jump right intorepparttar 129324 Web bit.

Check out services available or self-publish on your own. Either way, go for it.

Play By The Rules

But if you're serious about writing and dream of becoming an established author, takerepparttar 129325 conservative, conventional route. This gives yourepparttar 129326 greatest opportunity for success.

Yes, I know. The competition is fierce. But there's a bit of this onrepparttar 129327 Web as well. The last numbers I saw suggest there are over 100,000 titles available onrepparttar 129328 Internet.

To sell effectively through any website, you'll need a heck of a book. Then you'll have to somehow find your way beyond all those "Buy-Me!" pleas associated with each and every one of those 100,000+ titles.

Can it be done? Sure. But it's not easy. Certainly it's not easier than gainingrepparttar 129329 confidence of an agent who can sell your work to a major publishing house. ________________________
