Help – I’m writing a book!

Writers should not be expected to do everything. Here’s how Pretzel City Press can help:

Ah yes, the sweet, sweet feeling of finally putting all of your thoughts down on paper and completing your book. It’s a great feeling (and a huge accomplishment), but we know the thought that will be looming over you shortly after… 

 

Now what?

 

We know because we’ve been there. Because we’ve been there, we know that it is easier to have some help along the way. There’s a lot that goes into getting your book published, from branding yourself and coming up with a marketing strategy for your book, to getting headshots and designing a cover for your book. It can get overwhelming to think about, but it is also exciting! Once you realize that no one expects you to do all of this alone, it gets a little easier to take the first step.

 

At Pretzel City Press, we are all about building each other up and supporting one another. We love connecting people with reliable resources that we personally know you can count on. Below is a list of resources that we’d recommend to our friends any day!
