Why Does It Take So Long to Get a Book Into Print?

Biff Barnes

Why does it take so long to get a book into print?

That’s a question a lot of first time authors ask. There are plenty of good reasons that the process takes so long, but a humorous look at how a book gets edited, designed, published, publicized, distributed and marketed is much more fun. Enjoy the video published by the Digital Marketing Team at Macmillan titled From the Typewriter to the Bookstore: A Publishing Story.

Self-publishing can shorten the timeline, but a self-published book follows the same path if it is goiung to look professional and have a good chance of competing with books published by people like Macmillan.
