Have you ever sought to create your own unique short stories and get into short story publishing? Self-published short story work among other kinds is becoming a trendy, indie pastime for many artists and writers; one look in a local coffee shop may quickly reveal how important these self-published short stories are in today’s society.
Those who are interested in self-publishing their own short stories or other indie works may feel overwhelmed at the prospect of beginning the printing process. If you find yourself in the same boat, then you may have come to the right place. We enjoy helping young and old artists alike achieve their dreams. Take a look at the information below for a short overview of the book printing or short story publishing, editing and creating process.
Step One: Revise and Edit Your Short Story
Before sending your completed document to a reputable printing company, you first need to make sure that your document has been revised, revised, and revised again. The most important piece of information short story writers can hang on to concerning revision is simple: if you think you have revised enough, revise some more. Make sure that you spend a little time between revising sessions so that you can clear your head and approach the manuscript afresh. Editing is a natural offshoot of revising and an important part of short story writing. The more you read over your documents, the more errors you will be able to find and fix.

Step Three: Start Printing Your Short Story
After setting up payment and agreeing on project specifics, it is time to give your printing company the “green light,” so to speak. It is time to start short story publishing! Make sure that you give the company you choose adequate time to print the number of copies you desire. Even the fastest printing companies may need some time to evaluate, process, and print large projects. Share your deadline with the printer so that he or she understands your ideal timeline.
Step Four: Be Happy
You did it! Your short story writing is printed and ready to be distributed throughout your community. Give them to friends and family, put them in local coffee shops, and stick them in your neighbor’s yard. Do whatever you want to do with them; you have successfully printed off your very own self-published short stories. Give yourself a pat on the back.
