Here is Why it Takes Forever to Get Your Book Published

If anyone wonders why it takes months and sometimes more than a year to publish a book, please read this post. The author is Debra Dixon  of Bellebooks which published Maggie Valley, NC author, Kathryn Magendie's
novel, Tender  Graces.  I've followed Kathryn's blog as she wrote her first book, and kept her readers up to date on her publishing process.

On the post titled Why Does it Take So Long to Publish a Book, Debra gives us a list that is mind boggling and opens eyes to why it takes forever, after a writer finishes a manuscript, to get it into the hands of the reader.

Makes me even more appreciative of the work being done by Nancy Simpson and other members of NCWN West as we put together what promises to be an excellent anthology of work by writers living in and inspired by the southern Appalachian Mountains.

  1. Thanks for posting this, Glenda. It takes a lot of work to publish a book. I'm still enjoying your poetry collection.

  2. There is indeed a lot of work! I haven't read that post yet, must get over there and read, even though I experienced it with TG and now with SG....but, I can say my experience with BB has been wonderful!
