I have written some poems and I want to publish them. I would like some information on how to do that. I also am in the process of writing a book. It takes a lot of thought to write the book. However a poem I can write in a matter of minutes. I would like to make a short book of poems and publish it. How much would that cost? Does anyone know?

Thank you for this post. I am seriously weighing the self publishing route versus sourcing a publisher. Having recognition from the professionals as well as the marketing aspect make that route more appealing at the moment. Naturally the fear of never hearing back from publishers is ever present.

This post is helpful. I would like to publish a book of my poetry some day. There are a lot of sites out there nowadays that let you publish your own book. I don't know how well that works though. I would say it would involve doing ones own marketing to get it out there and noticed.

The marketing aspect of self-publishing scares me silly, as I am the worst salesperson I have ever met! Nor am I one to jump on the personal publicity bandwagon and launch myself into the public eye for any reason. I have written a children's book that has been favourably reviewed by peers and their children, but it will probably remain on my desktop, forever unread because I'm just the biggest coward! :roll:

I wrote 550 (email) queries. 550 rejections. Glad I didn't need stamps! Not sure what to do, but I do have a new, better book to promote. I'm getting consistently good reviews on this new one.

It would be wonderful to see your book in print....of course, you have to write it first. Ha ha :D
