From Manuscript To Published Book

What happens to your manuscript after it gets approved for publishing and leaves the editor’s desk?

I thought this Random House video does a pretty good job of explaining the pre-publishing process.

Specifically, their tagging process looks useful.

If you’ve ever wanted to know what happens at a large publishing house, then here’s a small glimpse behind the scenes.

    This was very interesting! I’ve always wondered what goes on behind the scenes. The part about e-pubs was particularly interesting since I’ve read quite a few e-books and always wondered how they get them perfect with all the changes the reader can make! Thanks so much for sharing this!

    • You bet. I was impressed by how much thought goes into it. It’s hard to appreciate that unless you see it first hand.

  9. That was very interesting. It really is amazing just how much work goes into our books once a publisher decides to take a chance on them.

    Thank you for posting this.

  10. Interesting. At first I thought that you were talking about what to do with your used mss once it’s been turned into galleys and then a book. Apologies for continuing this thought… I know a few people in the UK who have generously given their first proofs away for charity auctions, or even sold them to the highest bidder on eBay. This is writers being creative when it comes to earning. However I’ve mostly recycled my A4 print outs by using the other side as clean paper for my family’s home printer.
