First Steps Publishing goal is to publish books of high quality, including those that may have trouble finding homes in traditional markets. We love working with authors who are passionate about their work, willing to work hard and have a desire to publish to the world.
Are you Willing to Work Hard? Writing is a business, and need to be willing to spend a significant amount of time actively promoting their work. We don’t believe that authors should have to shoulder all of the responsibility, we do require active involvement from every one of our authors.
You are not alone. First Steps is committed to helping bring as much exposure to our authors’ books as possible. Social media, brick and mortar bookstore, libraries as well as other online and offline distribution are a few of the ways we ulitize. We also provide ongoing marketing advice and assistance to help the author learn the ropes of Author Branding.
All work must be original, and not have appeared elsewhere unless all rights have reverted back to the author.
