Problem Of Publishing by Tubelsaviz: 9:39am On Dec 28, 2012
One obstacle which aspiring writers face is publishing and not writing. I know many young authors who have written several unpublished manuscripts. Most publishing companies in Nigeria do not encourage these young writers and so many talents are hidden. How do u suggest we can solve this problem? I need your answers please

The way to go is to self publish your book, then look for marketers that would take the problem of selling it off your hands.

Hello. Pls, my book is on the way to publishing. It has been over a month that it's still being edited and reviewed. Just wanna ask, does editing take that long?
Re: Problem Of Publishing by kay29000(m): 11:16am On Dec 31, 2012
It depends on how voluminous your book is. Most of the editors i use dont take more than 2 weeks, but i write novellas, and not novels.

Ok. Tnx.

The publishing Industry in Nigeria is currently more interested in Non Fiction books, such as Textbooks, for Primary, Secondary and Higher Education. The Industry feels much safer with such investments.
As a writer of Fiction - novel, drama, poetry -my best advice is for you to look outside the Country. Look for a foreign publisher, especially an ebook publisher. As I'm certain some are already aware , ebooks have almost overtaken hardcover books, in terms of easy availability and global sales. Two of my books are available online; on amazon, barnes and noble, diesel, and other major online bookstores. There are a couple of ebook publishers out there that will publish your book at a low price. In my case it was less than N6,000. Make your book globally available, in addition to having it published by a foreign publisher.

How will you know whether those online publishers are fraudsters or not?

I am new on this site and just came across this thread. You can give this company a try http://www.booksprings.com/, they have particular focus on Nigeria so you don't have to worry about forex issues in dealing with them. As a disclaimer - I am affiliated with the company. The company is reliable and you can see existing eBook listings on their website.
FYI the company is also looking for partners that are based in Nigeria. So if anyone is conversant with the Nigerian publishing industry and interested, please send an email to mail@booksprings.co.uk

Sholay, it's important for your book to be properly edited before approaching e-book publishers. Most of them have no problem with your book being published in paperback or hard cover; as long as you grant them the exclusive right to the e-version of your book. Two of my books are presently sold online. A third one is on the way. I wrote and edited them. I'm a Writer and an Editor. If you want, you can reach me on 07055256144.
