Our journey to becoming a publisher

A few weeks ago, Harry posted a blog telling you all about our foray into publishing, Covers? Sorted. Reviews? Sorted. The response we received, and the follow-up questions you posted, prompted us to think a little more about the kind of publisher we’d like to be. Why wouldn’t we share our journey with you? Afterall, we are a community of writers – supporting each other on our individual journeys to publication.  

So that’s what we’re going to do. We’re going to share our successes, processes, hiccups, and the tricks we learn along the way.  

Our first title, Getting Published by Harry Bingham, was released as an ebook and paperback on Amazon two weeks ago. We kept this pretty quiet for a while – we’ll tell you our reasoning for that another time – but for now let me tell you a little more about the book.  

Getting Published is Harry’s definitive guide to getting your book traditionally published. It was a mammoth task, but Harry has covered every possible question that writers like us might have. Getting Published will 

  • Tell you if you need an agent and how to find one 
  • Teach you how to create a captivating query letter and synopsis 
  • Show you how to create a book proposal 
  • Help you negotiate the world of literary agents 
  • Explain the market for books as it exists in the 2020s 
  • Help you figure out your publishing contract 
  • Show you how to maximise your chances of successful publication – and how to work with editorial, with cover design, with publicists and every other part of publishing 
  • Teach you what you really need to know about author brand 
  • Address all the financial questions you’re likely to have

To find out more and to get your hands on a copy go here if you’re in the UK or here if you’re based in the US. 

Oh, and if you think we’ve missed something out, let us know… that’s what second editions are for!  

We’ll be sharing more Jericho Writers Publishing news over the coming weeks, but until then we hope you enjoy the book!

  • This is probably obvious to everyone else, but how do I get a digital copy of Harry's book if I don't have Kindle? Thanks

    5 Things To Know About Book Publicists
    So, you’re getting published. Your agent has persuaded a publisher to take on your book – job done, right? Wrong (and a good thing too, otherwise this blog post would be woefully short)!   There are a lot of people involved in turning your manuscript into a book – and to make sure that your book sells. One of the departments that you might not know much about is the publicity department.   I’m privileged to have a PR director from Penguin Random House as a mentor, and I’d like to share with you 5 things every author needs to know about book publicists.   1) They help to determine whether your book is brought on-board.   Before purchasing your book, a publishing house will hold an acquisi

    We at Jericho Writers know how important it is to spend some quality time with your significant other this Valentine’s day…and by significant other, we do of course mean your ever-dependable manuscript. After facing one another across a dimly lit table (it’s surprising how much light laptops can create), you might find that the passion you’ve been holding onto will reignite and boldly take the form of poetic prose.  On the other hand, you may also find yourself staring into the abyss wondering “Can we go the whole hog, or has the time come to start a new chapter?” If that’s the case, then worry not my friends! We have the tools to help you figure out your next best steps. You can check out
