How Much Does Books A Million Pay For Used Books

How do I go about publishing a book.

I’m part way through writing a book.How can I get published?

Now, I’m not a published author, but I am currently working on it!I don’t know how “detailed” I can make my answer, but a couple months ago when I began looking into trying to get my book published I read many, MANY Yahoo! answers about getting published; I would suggest you read those if you want more info too (ie: search “how to publish my novel”, “publishers for (insert novel genre here)”, etc.).From all the questions I’ve read, I can tell you that you definitely need a literary agent. You’re already at a good place, because literary agents look for novels that are basically perfect: that have been edited to the bone, don’t have any mistakes, etc. People have made it very clear that getting a literary agent is REALLY, REALLY hard (just like making it in the publishing industry in general); but if you are able to do so, you’ll be that much closer to achieving your dreams. Because agents read so many manuscripts a day (btw, make sure you draft is in manuscript format; because if it’s not that another reason agents will throw your manuscript into the slush pile), they only take on clients whose works they TRULY believe that a publisher will want. Because more major publishers don’t accept unsolicited manuscripts, you really need a literary agent, because otherwise you probably won’t be able to get your foot into the door at publishers like Scholastic, HarperCollins, Penguin, etc.So yeah, it sound like your next step is finding a literary agent (who is reputable; remember that agents who ask you for money upfront are scams! They make money by getting a fraction of what you get once your book starts selling). Because they are the ones who find a publishing house that will want to make a deal on your book, it’s important that you find one. Now, this may take weeks, years; it all depends on (1) when they respond to your query (letter that you use to present your work to an agent; look up how to write a good query letter on the internet; or I just remembered that a REALLY good book to help you in ALL of this that a lot of people recommend is “The Writers Market”), and (2) whether or not they accept or reject you. Now I’ve been told this, so I want to tell you that you WILL get rejected by agents….they are VERY picky, so don’t be surprised that even with all the feedback you’ve gotten some agents might say no (and they often won’t tell you why or what to fix; so after a while it becomes up to you to figure that out, from whether it’s your query letter or your manuscript itself).Huh, maybe I do know a lot more about this than I thought I could type up, haha.So yeah; in short, after you get an agent, they will find you a publisher, and then your book goes into the process of being edited by their editors, choosing a font, choosing a book cover, etc…..There is also the option of self-publishing (which can be done online). Now that is also “free” in that it doesn’t cost you anything because anyone can do it and say they are a “published author.” However, besides the fact that it’s a million times easier to get published this way than with an actual publisher, I don’t recommend self-publishing if you want to get even a small fan base. What I mean is 99.9% of self-published books never get beyond the scope of the writer’s friends and family. Your book will not be sold in bookstores, so the only thing you can do is pay to have it made and printed out (which costs money) so that you can hand them out to get people to read them (which takes time). Thus, the time and money you put into self-publishing is a lot, so I think this costs more than trying to find an agent and then a publisher. I know many people have gone to self-publishing as a last resort after being unsuccessful in finding an agent; so maybe you could do if after maybe getting like 100 rejections or something (because again, you WILL get rejected by agents) before turning to self-publishing.hope this helps!!! good luck!!! 🙂

how do i get a book published.

I started writing a book for my portfolio in writing (im a homeschooler) and now im wondering if i could get it published? i have read probably close to a million books (no joke i read really fast and for hours on end) and this is a book i would pick up from the library and read and probably put it on my top ten…

Do you have to pay for book on the NOOK Color.

Hi! I just wanted to know: Do you pay for books? How much do they cost, like what is the price range? Or does depend on the type of book? Does it have internet and games? Also add any other interesting facts and features about it.Plz and Thank You!!!

Even though Nook Color has LCD touchscreen, it’s a new generation screen which is anti-glare coated and thus it better performs in sunlight producing less glare while reading on iPad in painful. The screen is amazing and readable/viewable at wide angles. Nook store has over 2 million of paid books ($10 or less) and about the same number of free public domain books. Any Barnes & Noble store provides free Wi-Fi to Nook’s and when you walk in with the Nook to B&N store, you’re allowed to read any available eBook for free while in the store via free provided in the store Wi-Fi. With Nook, while in BN store you get exclusive articles from top authors, and great offers including cafe treats and unique deals.Nook Color has several apps that already come with the device (Pandora Internet radio, QuickOffice, etc.) and hundreds of other apps are available for download. Also, you can use the Social Settings screen to link your NOOK Color to your Facebook account and your Twitter account. You can also import all your contacts from your Google Gmail account. Once you have linked to Facebook and Twitter and set up email contacts, you can lend and borrow books, recommend books, and share favorite quotes with your friends.All Nook models (unlike all Kindle models) have microSD card slot to expand the device capacity.You can buy Nook’s at Barnes & Noble, Books-A-Millon, Walmart, BestBuy, Staples, OfficeMax, Fred Mayer, P.C.

How do you get a book published.

Once you finish writing a book in Microsoft Word and it’s ready to get published, do you just go up to a publishing company building and ask them if they can publish your book?WHAT IF you give them the book and they end up publishing it without your permission? And let’s say you have no lawyer, you are…

The “how do I get published?” question has been asked and answered about a million times already. Use the search bar to see what I mean.Worrying about publishers stealing your work is like worrying about winning the lottery and being struck by a meteorite on the way to claim the prize – it’s so unlikely that for all practical purposes it never happens. Publishers are very inventive in finding ways to screw you over (see the archives of www.thepassivevoice.com for examples), but one thing they won’t do is publish your book with someone else’s name on the front, cutting you out of the fame and the money.Literary agents and publishers receive a hundred or more manuscripts from wannabe authors for every one that they eventually publish. That means they’re never short of books they could publish.If they published the book under your name and paid you for it, you could expect to get about $10,000, that being a good advance for a first novel. You might want to look into what it would cost the publisher to defend a lawsuit if you sued them, even if they won. (They don’t know you can’t afford a lawyer, unless you’re dumb enough to tell them that.) I’m willing to bet it would be a lot more than $10,000.There’s also the problem that if they publish it under someone else’s name, it has to be someone who could generate a lot more than $10,000 worth of sales – otherwise there’s no point. So it has to be someone famous, who presumably has no difficulties in writing his own books. Why would he pretend to have written a book that didn’t match his usual style? (Editing it to make it sound like him would be almost as much work as writing a new one.) It’s doubtful that he’d earn much more money from it than from one of his own books, so why would he go along with a scheme that will ruin his reputation and cost him all his future earnings if he’s found out?

how much does the average author make on a book.

you can either give me an averageoran about estimate on the minimum and maximum amount of money an okay, good or great selling book goes for and how much the author makes off it?

Not much.I know two writers with three and four books under their belts respectively.One still works two jobs at bars 40 hours a week. The other doesn’t work at anything other than writing, but only because his wife is out working to make ends meet. They each make probably 30-40k or so a year from their writing, tops, same as an administrative assistant or a middle school teacher. One’s been writing for 10 years, the other for about 8. One did get a movie option and a fair chunk of change a few years ago, but the movie was never made and the money long since ran out.Unless you are a blockbuster, don’t expect a mansion and maids (and don’t expect to be a blockbuster – bookstores are FULL of non-blockbuster authors). Writers have a pretty thin margin most of the time. Most writers are professors or teachers when not writing. Or have other writing related jobs, like for TV or as script doctors for other writers, using their own writing as “bonus” money on top of their regular pay.I mean, if you are a Stephen King, then you can get $30 million advance on a 5 book deal, plus movie royalties and speaking fees, but the book stores are chock full of HUNDREDS of unknown nobodies making virtually nothing for every King or Grisham or Rowling out there. Stephanie Meyer is the exception, not the rule.

how much would someone pay for this book from the 1800s.

how much would someone pay for this book from the 1800s?its in PERFECT condition.Im not exagerating here no tears or stains or anything.its titled “an introduction to the study of society”American Book company.Copyright 1892Its a college bookthe inside saysmiss annie davis shaw…

The American Book Company prioduced a lot of what’s known today as General material, i.e., both fiction and nonfiction.Textbooks as a rule tend to be worthless, no matter how old they are, largely because they’re produced in the millions.And remember, just because somebody online is offering the same book for $50 – $100 does not necessarily mean that the book is worth that much! It’s like a used car auction: the auctioneer may know that the car has blown its headers and has bad tires, but if he starts the auction at $5000 and somebody buys it, then why should he care what the true value is?The book business is almost like Wall Street: fortunes can be made or lost in a matter of days, often with a single purchase. Watch your step!

How do you pay for e-books.

Thinking about buying an Kindle or Nook for my parents. When you power on the reader can you download them directly onto the tablet? We have a router, does it have a wireless card. Thanks for any help. And lastly do you think it is a worth while gift?

Hey, Tommy G, most eReaders on the market (other than some Sony models) have at least Wi-Fi built-in and yes, you can download the books directly to the devices. In my opinion, Nook from Barnes & Noble is the best combination of price and features of the eReaders market. When choosing an eReader, you need to consider not only the physical properties of the device, but also compare eBook stores behind it. Sony has never been a contender for any comparison by anyone as they only have like 5 books in their Ebook store and their devices are way overpriced for what they offer. Borders is behind Kobo/Cruz devices in US and as you might of heard, Borders is on a brink of bankruptcy. Kindle and Nook are the only devices to be considered as their eBook stores have over a million of free public ebooks as well as over a million of ebooks that you need to pay for available.Having that out of the way, you should then decide which screen you want: e-Ink or LCD. It depends on what you’re reading. If just black & white novels then the better one would be Kindle or e-Ink Nook from Barnes & Noble. If you read electronic magazines or college text books with a lot of color graphs and charts or children’s’ books with a lot of pictures then the better would be Nook Color LCD from Barnes & Noble. Then, you should understand the limitations of e-Ink eReaders – they are limited to be black & white for now they “blink” at each ebook’s page turn, they’re not too good for web browsing, they need external light source for reading when dark, and they cannot handle videos.Whichever device you choose, here’s the advantages of the Nook’s (both e-Ink black & white and Nook Color) over Kindle:- Any Barnes & Noble store provides free Wi-Fi to Nook’s- Nook allows to lend books for 2 weeks to friends or to your other devices that run B&N app (PC, MAC, Android phones, Apple iPhone and iPad, etc.) Barnes & Noble allows (when you walk in with the Nook to B&N store) to read any available eBook for free while in the store via free provided in the store Wi-Fi. With Nook, while in BN store you get exclusive articles from top authors, and great offers including cafe treats and unique deals.- Nook (unlike Kindle) can be used for library ebooks.- Nook (unlike Kindle) can be used for renting text-ebooks.Nook Color is worth mentioning separately as this is a hybrid Android eReader/tablet device, something between Kindle and iPad. Even though Nook Color has LCD touchscreen, it’s a new generation screen which is anti-glare coated and is better performing in sunlight and produces less glare all of which are dooming reading on iPad. Also, the screen is amazing and readable/viewable at wide angles.Overall, Nook Color is more than e-Reader as you can also watch video and use Android applications on it. It’s a hybrid device, much more than just an e-Reader but not a full tablet as it doesn’t have a camera. If all you want is to read novels, Kindle (or the original e-Ink Nook) might be better for you. If you want something more from your device (color graphs and charts of college text books, childrens books, photos and videos, web sites in full color) at half of the price of iPad or Galaxy tab, then Nook Color is your best bet.Nook Color has several apps that already come with the device (Pandora Internet radio, QuickOffice, etc.) Also, Barnes & Noble recently released Nook SDK and Nook Developer platform that will allow most of the existing 100,000 Android apps be ported to it. Also, you can use the Social Settings screen to link your NOOK Color to your Facebook account and your Twitter account. You can also import all your contacts from your Google Gmail account. Once you have linked to Facebook and Twitter and set up email contacts, you can lend and borrow books, recommend books, and share favorite quotes with your friends.

How do I publish a book.

Hi Im writing a book and I want to make it famous and I need to know how to publish it. Any help?P.S: I need a really easy way to do it.

There are two ways to go to publish a fiction book. One is a sure thing: Pay for it, with no expectation of selling it to anybody who’s not a friend or family, no matter how good it is or how much you work and/or spend to market it. I think this is a terrible idea.The one I recommend is not a sure thing at all. In fact, it’s so competitive that first efforts usually fail. But if you succeed, it gets your book into chains like Barnes & Noble, Chapters, and independent book stores, too, where the vast majority of book sales happen. This requires a “real” publisher who pays you for the right to print your book, and who then markets it, including placing it in stores, because they expect to sell thousands of copies.The big “name” publishers usually accept book manuscripts only from literary agents, using them to screen out manuscripts that aren’t likely to sell as books for whatever reason. You have to write a terrific book to get an agent, and a terrific query letter to get him or her to ask to see the book in the first place.But don’t kid yourself–most people’s first books are not good enough for commercial publishing. Usually a writer reaches his or her peak in quality when they pass the million-word mark. It’s a learn-by-doing skill.

  1. I have the Kindle 3 and its amazing. You have to register and make an account on Amazon.com and there you put your Credit Card Number and it saves it. On the Kindle you just go search for a book you want press Buy and it immediately takes it from the Credit Card. Pretty much the same thing with the Nook.

  2. First you have to finish the book *before* you can consider publishing it–otherwise you’ll just be tempted to rush through the process in order to get to “the end” and you’ll end up with a really crappy novel.5% to 10% of cover price on paperbacks

  3. Average on a book published by a reputable publishing house?

  4. Also it helps if people know who you are online. So publish chapters or short stories using your characters on some writing sites so that you already have an audience who would like to buy your book

  5. Well, I’m not sure. it wouldn’t be worth to much unless it had a histrocial background. But I would contact the local college or University to check it out. They would likely want to purchase it, *** a historical, society study book. To better understand the evolution of views to the current day.

  6. During the summer I read about 8 books.

  7. 1 in 100 authors would get more than this range. But if you are the one posting this question I doubt if you would.

  8. 1

  9. I have a kindle: I can buy my book on the device in a icon saying kindle store. Same with nook- it has a store too which you can purchase from. Or you could simply go on the website (http://www.amazon.com/Kindle-eBooks/b/ref=sa_menu_kbo0?ie=UTF8&node=1286228011) and buy books from that once you register the kindle and it will wirlessly deliver it to your kindle. You can download pdf files to your kindle too; like put it on like you’d put it on a USB device and it will show up. It is definitely worthwhile!!!! I love my kindle; I haven’t paid a penny on any book on the kindle and i have every single book I want on it.

  10. A great gift though to accompany the Kindle or Nook or any other wireless reader or laptop is an Amazon gift card. They have email gift cards and printable gift cards. You can give this along w/the Kindle and enable them to buy e books. The Kindle also comes with a bunch of free stuff.I’m a little surprised that you would be asking “how” to publish a novel–leaving me with the impression that you don’t know much about how the publishing process works–let alone querying prospective agents on your book.My advice is to get a book on agents and publishers, but also get one on how the query letter process works. Both will show you how to send in your manuscript with the appropriately written query letter.

  11. Print manuscripts , advertise on the Internet, get a publicist

  12. Go to your local library and get a copy of “Writer’s Market.” It’s revised every year, but you don’t need the latest edition. It will answer all the questions you asked here, and several more you haven’t thought of yet.

  13. There are free books, and books you pay for and yes the price varies.

  14. There is no true average.–first time authors make less than popular authors, and occassionally more than an established author whose sales are falling.ask a publisher to publish your book

  15. Agents is not going to contact some thing that’s already Published (if it is a authentic corporation) niether will they post matters which were positioned at the Internet. Synopsis’s is ok however in the event you add chapters then no. Also with self-publishing you have got doomed your self. Your booklet is not getting wherever so that you write anything else and procedure an Agent. They wish to grasp whether or not you have got any matrerial Published, then they wish to grasp whether or not it bought. Yours has no longer, they marvel why and wont be given your paintings. You must ask why your paintings hasn’t bought. Self-Publishing could make or holiday you and really ordinarily it breaks you, now you can battle to post some thing along with your History. I are not able to urge folks sufficient to investigate each angel of Publishing and in my sincere opinion keep away from Self-publishing. Sorry to supply you most effective dangerous information, however it isn’t your booklet that wont be authorized however you as good. I are not able to even let you know what to do and you can no longer get out of it I’m afraid. I’m no longer an Author myself I paintings for the ‘Dark Side’, folks should not be so frightened of Agents we do not chew that rough.

  16. The other way is through normal publishing and you will need agent, which will only accept a few manuscripts a year so yours needs to stand out, you will need a critique and that can tell you what is wrong and right with your book.

  17. It is soooooooo hard to get a book published!!!!! Most people get an agent, but then they take part of your money. You’re not going to get a book published by just sending in a story, in fact they probably won’t even look at it. You are supposed to send in a brief summary and perhaps two or so chapters to give a context but even then it is likely that they won’t look at it.$50-150

  18. The publishing world is so radically different from author to author, it’s hard to give figures. But the JKRs, Stephen Kings and Pattersons are the .01% of the industry. They can live comfortably off their writings. About 5% of the industry can live well off their works.

  19. Agents is not going to contact something that’s already Published (if it is a authentic corporation) niether will they post matters which were positioned at the Internet. Synopsis’s is ok however in case you add chapters then no. Also with self-publishing you’ve gotten doomed your self. Your booklet is not getting at any place so that you write anything else and procedure an Agent. They desire to understand whether or not you’ve gotten any matrerial Published, then they desire to understand whether or not it offered. Yours has now not, they marvel why and wont take delivery of your paintings. You have got to ask why your paintings hasn’t offered. Self-Publishing could make or holiday you and really ordinarily it breaks you, now you can battle to post something together with your History. I cannot urge folks sufficient to investigate each angel of Publishing and in my sincere opinion avoid Self-publishing. Sorry to provide you most effective unhealthy information, however it isn’t your booklet that wont be authorized however you as good. I cannot even let you know what to do and you can now not get out of it I’m afraid. I’m now not an Author myself I paintings for the ‘Dark Side’, folks should not be so frightened of Agents we do not chunk that rough.

  20. You have to register and make an account on Amazon.com.Depends on the genre and the experience of the author. Some make 20% on retail. Assuming your book sells for the average 12.99, you could bring home close to $2.59 a book. Of course you have to pay taxes and possibly an agent 15% of that so roughly, $2.00 a book.This is a difficult question to answer due to the variables that make up for a successful book. The type of book you write makes an impact on the amount you can earn. For instance non-fiction books sell easier and tend to make more than fiction books.

  21. The Kindle has built-in wi-fi capability. So yes, it can access your wireless router.But I wouldn’t be getting your hopes up on the absolute *possibility* you’ll be accepted. I’ve been in this game long enough to know that it doesn’t happen that way. Rejections are a way of life for us writers.Spending years on one project is hardly the effort when you consider many books simply don’t make it to the shelves.

  22. You might get $10 for it, if you’re lucky.

  23. Get a copy of “Writer’s Market” and/or “How to Get Happily Published” from your library or bookstore. They explain the process of real publishing (not scam “vanity presses” where you pay a printer who calls itself a publisher, but real publishing, where the publisher pays YOU). Read them. They explain it understandably in detail.

  24. To be worth anything the book has to be one that is sought after by collectors.

  25. Depends on genre, author history/popularity, attractiveness of the book and negotiating leverage (on either side).Most writers know on an instinctive level what comes next–after writing a book. They grab the latest writer’s guide to agents, editors, and publishers and start perusing the pages for someone they can send their manuscript off to.The genre I write in “averages” $8000 advance and 7% royalty on paperback, 12% on hardback. Once, or if, you sell enough copies of your book (so that your royalties are more than your advance, which is an prepaid royalty) you start earning more money (additional royalties).

  26. As far as if it’s a worth while gift, well, that depends on how much the person reads. If it’s someone that just reads every once in a while, then I’d say no. I own one, but I read a new book every 2 days so it made since for me to have one. Generally the cost difference doesn’t justify the cost of a Kindle/Nook unless you read a lot. Honestly I think it’s more a convenience and space saver than a money saver.

  27. Go to Scholastic?

  28. One way you could try is self publishing. I know many people turn their noses up at it, but it’s not a bad idea. It just gets your name out there and you keep all your rights. You wouldn’t have to publish heaps and heaps of copies but then a proper publishing company could come across it and then want to buy your rights and publish it through their companies.Like an Anthropology, or Sociology class.

  29. 10% to 20% on hardcovers5-10,000 dollars.–Some publishers will pay more than others, because they can, but that is not always the best deal (another publisher may be willing to put more effort/financing into advertising the book).http://books.eserver.org/nonfiction/how-to-publish.html

  31. Yeah, they look pretty cool. Depending on which one you buy it will have wireless and run on the same thing that a smartphone does (the 3G network). All of them have wireless. They are set up to pretty much run right out of the box.I’m including some links I found on the subject however. Don’t let a few authors deter you from doing what you want to do, but also consider that it takes work and perseverance to see results.

  32. edited to add: Yes, you can find free books, but unless it’s an authorized free read or a book that has an expired copyright, it’s not legal to download them. Illegal downloading of books is the reason the publishers charge pretty much the same price for ebooks as they do for the paperbacks.

  34. http://thetroubledwriter.wordpress.com/p…I don’t know too much about self publishing, I just remember at writing club at school we had a guest author come speak to us and she said that she self-published until a proper publishing company picked her up and so she had all her rights etc as said above. I’m sure if you google this it will give you information. Last year I put in my email address and some details to a couple of places that help you self publish and I got a phone call from one (unfortunately I can’t remember the name but they sounded so helpful, they were paying to ring me in NZ all the way from America) I’m just no where near publishing yet, so if you find a few sites like this then just email in your contact details and find out what you can 🙂

  35. The average author makes nothing.–Different genres average different amounts (some only a few thousand, others ten times that or better, where the advance is based on the minimum sales expected for the market size).Probably worthless.They’d likely pay more than $70.

  36. Believe it or not, it isn’t worth a fortune. I would say on the open market it would bring between $75 to $150 dollars. That is only if you find the right buyer. The books that are big money are usually first edition with a famous author. It is quite a nice conversation piece, and it’s fun to go back and see how society was viewed back then.

  37. And yes its worth a while gift because you can read at any moment you want too. I recommend the Kindle because i have it. It feels good its small (the nook is to big for my liking) and can go anywhere.

  38. Btw name inscriptions and annotations reduce the price of a book, unless they are by someone famous.

  39. Sounds like a great idea to me! I am thinking about getting my mom one.

  40. Yes you can buy them directly from it IF you have internet connection and a way to pay for it.

  41. Try the website and download it.

  42. Hope this helps and hope you will be a success.

  43. –Some books sell better to the target market than others. The more popular the book is, the more you make (in royalties)90 bucks. there is a book in an antiqe shop that was from the 1700’s and was.100 bucks.

  44. So if you get the Kindle Wireless and you were somewhere that there’s no internet it does work. You have to connect to download books. But, you can download them onto your computer, sell phone, and other computer device then transfer it with a USB cord. That’s one of the tricks to use.Is it a famous book? No. Is it a limited edition? No? Is it a fine binding? No. So who cares?Here’s the thing. If you want to write to make money…find another profession. Writers write because they can’t not write. Some because that’s what they’re good at. Others because, you can’t keep them from it. I hope this helped.

  45. I bought one. Believe it or not, my primary motivation was that I wanted to stop hassling with all the stacks of books leftover after I read them. Several times a year, I’d have a box or big bag filled with books I needed to get rid of. No more. All will fit on my Kindle, and if I ever actually hit the 4 GB limit, I can delete them, and re-download them later for free, if I want to read them again.

  46. Probably about $45. Check it out on Addall.

  47. Once you are finished or close to being finished, begin researching agencies that will help you publish your genre of book. Send your manuscript to the ones you’ve chosen and they will help you from there!

  48. You can self-publish but it will cost you a lot of money and it might not sell well.Unfortunately many writers see the craft of writing as an art, not a business. If you intend on making a living as an author, this means you continue to write, even during the wait on rejections. It means being prolific, such as writing a 150,000 word novel in a given amount of time in order to make the whole effort worthwhile. Just as one book gets to print, you should already be writing another. This is how you make money- that and being a good enough writer where readers want more.[DELDUP()]Some of the readers have 3G so you can download anytime, anywhere. If it’s one with just WiFi, then you’ll need to be somewhere that has internet available for you. When you download a book on the ereader you pay through an account you have set up through Amazon/BN etc. Or you can purchase from a website from your PC and have it sent to your ereader that way.You buy books by either shopping on the Kindle itself, via the wi-fi, or using your computer to access the Amazon site, and then telling it to send the book to the Kindle.It would take a book to answer all your questions. Fortunately, someone has written that book.thank for your information

  49. School books were produced in huge numbers and have no intrinsic value.Here are three links that will take you to places that you can learn about writing.–royalty percent can vary (hardcovers have higher rates than paperbacks but they also cost more, contract can have bonus rates for meeting a certain number of sales, new author may get lower rate than an established author will, etc)You should visit the writer’s workshop website because they can give you advice on how to get publish.
