If you have ever written a book and you think you want to get it published, i know a company that you can email your book too, so they can read and rate it to you, and maybe publish it!

If you want me to send it to them let me know, i will give you my email so you can send it to me, so i can send it to them


kids can't publish books


no but the company i have friends in, can read your story and might put it up for publishing

I'm a writer - its a scam. if you have any talent there will a reputable agent out there who will take you on. and never, NEVER, send out any of your work without legally protecting your rights on it as the author. a good publisher and or agent will not bother rating your book if they arent interested in it. they arent going to walk you through it, hold your hand and tell you how to get some talent either and show you where you went wrong.

buy The Writers and Artists Yearbook 2008 - it will give you much better information and advice.


ive written many books!!!...none of them published of course !!! ill take your advice!!....you seem to be thinking straight!!

heres another tip about writing. there are people with the talent at a young age to be a writer. however they may find that because of a lack of life experience they cant apply it to their writing. you'll find your writing developing as you grow yourself and will also have a clearer idea of what you want to be.
however, my father is a professional artist who has exhibited at the royal academy in london. he always asked me what his art teacher had asked him..."do you enjoy painting/writing? is it something you have fun doing and can put down and pick up whenever you like? if you answer is yes then DONT be a professional artist/writer, keep it as a hobby. painting is something that should consume your life and should be something you CANT put down"

even though i liked writing when i was younger i wasnt a writer becase i didnt know exactly what i wanted to do with my life. now i am a writer because i cant put it down, and i'm not a slacker because im just too obsessed with it.

and if youre wondering how i find the time to post on CR, i do that when im eating , and as a writer its good to watch and listen to other people of all ages and backgrounds, as with as much life experience as anyone can have, you CANT be someone else

:)


ironic.. growing up made me a bitch lame writer. my favorite past time is sitting on mall food courts and people watching. hey any published book? of course your a writer..oh.. so any books you wanna share..

I have written stories before, with over one hundred pages of nonsense. I would just write pages when I was bored, and the story really grew and wasn't half bad. I also used to write a lot of fanfiction, but only for my own enjoyment. I would publish something I write one day, sure, probably some fantastical short story or something.

If the person wants us to be successful, he would tell us the company.
This is the internet, no one is your friend.

Don't trust anyone! You can easily find a publishing company, just as you found this thread. There is the internet, a wide variety, of hopes and dreams.

I'm currently writing a novel and hope to get it published about 2 years from now.
But could you give me the name of the company that does the publishing? I would like to do some research on them, before trusting them with my work. Also I would like to directly transfer my work(personally), I don't like using middle men( for many reason, they've screwed up my life before).

Does it piss you off when you type something that takes time, experience and an active desire to help people only to have it ignored in favour of "lol i wroten storeys in class rofl" type spam?

Until now at least, sound advice.

Some people make their life of writing, and if someone's dream gets overcasted by a CR user "that claims he has a company that can publish items"

That's just idiotic, are you handing your dreams over to a simple CR user? That you simply just met, and know absolutly nothing about, aside the fact, that everything he tells you can be false.
