How to Get Your Romance Book Published

There is a lot of time and effort that goes into writing romance novels. However, many authors need to put even more effort into their pre-publication process. All romance and erotic books should be proofread and properly edited before it ever sees the lights of a publishing company.

The life of a book starts from scribbles on a paper, and develops to a beautiful cover displayed at the local bookstore. Before a book can be read, it (of course) has to be published. The publishing process can take some time, but the pre-publication process should last even longer. Authors should put much work, time, and effort into preparing their book to be published. No publisher will want to publish a book that hasn’t been edited properly. In the end, it becomes a waste of time for both the author and the publisher if the piece has not been properly edited. This is why it is important to take the time to perfect your book before soliciting it to publishers. Here are some tips for authors wishing to get their works published:

1) Have an interesting topic – Before any book has the possibility of being published, you’ll want to make sure your book contains interesting subject matter. If you’re into writing romance novels, of course your book will be about love, relationships, emotions and all of those related topics, but find a way to make your topic unique. Add a twist and spin here and there to make your storyline stand out. We’ve all read the girl falls in love with boy stories before. Find a way to spice up your plot!

 

2) Proofread and edit – it’s important that before you submit any to your work to a publisher it be properly proofread and edited. Many authors will hire a professional proofreading and editing company that will be able to catch the mistakes within your novel. These companies are experienced in editing books of all types, including Erotic Books. No matter the genre of your novel, it’s important to know that your book is perfected to the highest extent. This means proper grammar, no typos, and a story that reads well.

3) Rewrite as necessary – Though most authors dread it, there may be sections of your book that simply need to be rewritten. Maybe they don’t fit, or maybe you’d like to add and/or take something out of a specific scene. Rewriting is not always a negative thing. In most cases it improves the plot and flow of many Romance Books.

4) Captivating or thought-provoking title – One of the first things that a reader sees when your book is on the shelf is the title. A book’s title should be thought-provoking and/or attention-grabbing. If your book is about a love story, don’t name it “Love story.” Such a title leaves no suspense and doesn’t captivate or make a reader wonder what your book is about. Create a title that is slightly cryptic and will catch readers’ eyes.

5) Eye-catching cover – Another important thing that readers see when looking for a book is the cover. Make sure that your book has a catchy cover or graphic that will draw attention. Find a way to make the cover pop by using intense graphics, vivid colors, or even maybe a bit of both.
