'Self Publish' your novel

There has never been a better time to become a novelist and get your book published - self publish it! Did you know that more books are self published today than those done using the traditional route? Why? well it has become very easy and is open to everyone.


In the past getting published was a hard task. The publishers were deluged with potential book manuscripts to read. Just getting your work appraised was a daunting task but for many it was worth the perseverance. It is reported that JK Rowling, although having employed a literary agent,  had Harry Potter books by 12 different  publishers when the manuscripts were first submitted in 1996. We all know how that story ended - so it was worth the struggle!

Sixteen years later, things have changed and are definitely better for the aspiring novel writer. The racy 50 Shades Of Gray, written by EL James in 2011, was self published. It got to the top of The New York Times e-book and print bestseller lists. It is also reported to have set the record for being the fastest selling paperback of all time, beating Harry Potter! Self publishing has turned the whole novel publishing industry on its head and put the traditional publishers on the back heel. As a lot of people are using it, there are less traditional submissions to publishers easing the log jam.

So if you are planning to become a self published author, your timing is perfect!

So what is self publishing?

Instead of physically bundling up your novel and sending to potential traditional publishers, you can now use online companies and do it all electronically. They provide you with the tools to upload your novel text, design your covers and put it up for sale online. All quickly and easily! There are also companies that will handle this process for you which you can find on the Internet. We would suggest not discounting the traditional route just because you are self publishing. It may be worth making submissions to publishers as well!

Why is NewNovelist 3 ideal for self publishing?

While getting your novel to market has become a lot easier - writing your novel has not - if anything it has got harder. Self publishing has one major disadvantage - unless you use someone else, you also have to be your own editor and proof reader. These people in the past provide a new pair of eyes on your work and can pick up mistakes, typos and things that may make sense to you but not others.

NewNovelist 3 provides tools to help you analyze your work and also provides an automated voice read-back facility (bit like Stephen Hawkins). This is not a gimmick and has proved to be a vital tool in proof reading peoples work. When you privately hear what you have written, you get a different perspective of your work.

NewNovelist 3 has powerful printing and exporting facilities you can use to publish your novel. The electronic form used to export your work is Rich Text Format (RTF). RTF is a traditional cross platform format and is accepted by most online resources for self publishing (Amazon/Lulu etc).

To get your RTF file is as easy as clicking on one button when reviewing your work for exporting.

There are two options available for export.

If you use the Formatted option will contain your novel using the type face and formatting you used when writing.

Additionally you can use the Manuscript option if you want to prepare you novel for traditional submission to potential publishers. This will prepare you work for editorial processing by double spacing the lines and use a fixed pitch font which is the normal acceptable format.

NewNovelist and Creative Writing
Creative writing and learning how to write a novel can be exceptionally hard. First, you have to learn the basics, then you have to practice... and practice... and practice. And you also have to research what makes a successful novel. The vast majority of novels adopt a basic formula, and we incorporate these within NewNovelist.

Whilst throughout these additional information pages we have provided tips and 'how-to' advice, the real gold dust is in our software program (available on CD or to download). It is based on tuition from the leading university Creative Writing course in England (University of East Anglia), and uses templates to provide you with the structure you might otherwise spend years researching. These templates can teach you the basics to writing all different types of novel: crime, mystery, detective, fantasy, childrens, thrillers, military and many many more. In short, it provides you with a virtual tutor.

In addition to the template structure, there is context sensitive help available - advising you on timing, tone and beat - and scores of examples drawn from modern and classical literature. For beginners this will be a revelation. For more experienced writers it provides a welcome refresher.
