yes i know i have to be careful and i have signed proof documents and other things from registered teachers and jp to state that the story is mine and mine alone. i also have kept all my notes drafts, copies on floppys, (yes thats how long ive been working on it.) so yes thankyou for that but i have taken many precausions.

Hi, one of the best places to start would be to buy a copy of the writers and artists yearbook which you can get on Amazon. They have a list of all of the publishers and give details of which genre they accept and which format they will accept your work in. They also list agents which will help you find publishers and give you feedback on your work.

Hi frejamoon, the answer really depends on what you want from your book, do you want the comfort of a known publisher who will want a contract giving them a period of copyright and pay you a percentage (a small one around 7-8%) and handle all the editorial, marketing and sales or do you want complete control and a better retuen but have to handle all of the above? If you want to have complete control there are a number of self publishing and vanity presses avialable on the internet and all the uploading can be done online. If you want a publisher then again a little research on line from the simple title teenage book publishers will genreate you a list of potentials. I chose to use a publisher, it does get me a smaller return but I am a writer not an Editor or Marketing Expert. I cannot offer you my publishers details as it is a different genre. Hope this helps, good luck.

Hello, there are a few ways to publish a book but you must choose how you want to go about it. there is the traditional book publishing way. publishamarica.com is a place for that. the problem is that they only give you 8% of the total earnings and also takes all rights from you to publish anywhere else....i turned them down. but there also is the print on demand way. this way lets you upload any files and set your own price. you can make as much as you want off one book. www.lulu.com is the first place i would go. this place is good, i use it. just create an account, upload your files, create a cover, set a price, and start selling. after that is done there is another place that is good. www.createspace.com... but you should email me anytime if you have questions. email@example.com first of all i would do lulu.com and wait a while till you do createspace they have small catches....but lulu has no catch.start there you wont be disappointed. thanks and please email me if you need some more help. thank you.
