How do I publish an anthology?

Colleagues at California Writers Club (CWC) have done it, again and again–organized “calls for submission”, created guidelines for the selection process, found editors, identified endorsers, lined up experts for book covers, layout, index, publishers, marketing and distribution channels (all with the help of their platforms fanbases).

Kate Farrell is editor-in-chief for Wisdom Has a Voice: Every Daughter’s Memories of Mother

I’m about to read excerpts from the anthology before writing my advance praise.  Also,  I’m a fan of Kate Farrell’s literary works. Take a look at her young-adult novel Girl In the Mirror

One Response to “How do I publish an anthology?”

  • Hello there, Teresa. Thank you for so kindly mentioning us and the anthology. We’re certainly excited about how well it’s selling. This afternoon I delivered another stack of Fault Zone anthologies to Kepler’s Books and Magazines in Menlo Park. They’re pleased with the sales (but probably not as pleased as we are). And they say there’s a good mix of in-store and online sales.

    We also have public signings and readings coming up in June and July in the Bay Area that we’re very excited about, and we’re taking submissions and gearing up for Fault Zone 2012, coming out next January.

    I’ve kept in mind the lessons I learned from Build Your Writer’s Platform & Fanbase in 22 Days as we set about letting more and more people know about this great anthology. Thanks for your great teaching.
