A Brief Overview of the Publishing Process (If You Want To Try Traditional Publishing)

I just had to reblog this very informative post by Ruth Ann Nordin; it is an eye-opener to anyone considering traditional publishing. https://selfpubauthors.com/2017/05/05/a-brief-overview-of-the-publishing-process-if-you-want-to-try-traditional-publishing/#like-9128

Self-Published Authors Helping Other Authors

Someone asked me about traditional publishing a while back, and I’m just now getting around to writing this post.  (I’m sorry for the delay in getting to this post.  I have to be in the mood to write a blog post or else it’s going to turn out flat.)

Now, I’m not going into the specifics because each publishing company has their own way of doing things.  This is just a broad overview of what I gathered from my research over the years.  If anyone has more information they would like to add, please do!  (Be sure to read the comments.  There might be better information there than what I can provide.)

A quick note: a reputable publisher will never take money from you.  Money should flow to the author, not from the author.  If a publisher wants your money, run away.
