you an author looking to publish your masterpiece? BookPublishers.com could connect
talented writers like you with willing book publishers. For many talented authors,
the most difficult obstacle isnt writers blockits finding
a receptive publisher to publish their books. Because publishers have to sift
through so many works, they may dismiss some unfairly, or be so short-staffed
that they dont have the time to give each manuscript its fair consideration.
For those who decide
that finding a publisher isnt the right choice for them, self-publishing
can be a great alternative. With self-publishing a writer can maintain editorial
control, as well as keep all proceeds from the book sales. Whatever your preference,
