Traditional publishing is very demanding. It is very difficult for some works to scale through the scrutiny of the editors. But the world is digitalizing and disrupting every industry and the book industry is not left out. When it comes to writing, there is a common denominator, that is, that innermost desire to be read which follows the desire to earn from what one has written. This is the place of publishing. A channel to make you reach a wider audience. To communicate your feelings and experiences beyond your writing table. Publishing opens up more doors both in boosting your personality, and in helping you package your craft, it can also guarantee you a form of financial reward. 

However, there are two basic problems that present itself to many writers. This problem is simple but is geared towards the question they ask themselves everyday “how do I publish these books to reach greater audiences” and “How do I earn from my craft”. What if I tell you there is a way, which will not just guarantee good earnings but also make you self-confident.

It is doable, but I must let you know, writing itself or any other indie service, involves a lot of perseverance, consistency, creativity, and patience. What this means is that do not expect to publish your writings today and start reaping millions from it, if you are such a writer check another space.

Your writings can be creative writing like poetry, Drama, Fiction, both literary fiction, and genre fiction. It can also stretch across self-help book, Research, medical books, Motivational as well as Religious books.

 Let’s begin. I will give you hints on how to do this. There are different many options, like publishing on your site, and some other literary magazines. But that is not the type of publication we mean. Here is a quick approach.
