How to Get Published in 24 Hours

Here’s the short answer: lulu.com

It’s Print on Demand, NOT Vanity Publishing. It’s FREE insofar as there’s no initial outlay. You pay per every book that you SELL (your book will be on sale on Amazon etc as well as orderable from certain bricks-and-mortar bookshops).

You can sell your book as an ebook, or give it away as a download, so people can pay to download it as a PDF file and print out a copy themselves or read it on their PC, for those who want to avoid paying for postage or printing.

Or if you just want to publish direct to Kindle: kdp.amazon.com

Or if you just like to blog and shoot your mouth off on the internet: wordpress.com

We’re all publishers now.

This was news about ten years ago — when I taught an excited bunch of students ‘how to get published in 24 hours’ and they went off and did it. They made their own book, designed the cover, edited it and sold it on Lulu. They even threw their own book launch.

What’s striking to me now is how so many of us take it for granted.
