If you are a bookseller and want to move into publishing, two to three years of bookselling is ample. On the whole, keep in mind that publishing with vanity presses that charge you a fee usually won’t advance your career, and that traditional publishing companies and legitimate agents don’t charge writers a fee to be published.

Because of waning media attention for books and an increased focus on profits among many publishers, competition is fierce. Saying that you don't know the answer is fine, and patrons will respect you for it. Many of these write series, such as mysteries — and readers, many of whom do not depend on the Internet for their book news, would learn of a new title in the series only by seeing it on the shelf.

Each book publishing company must decide what kind of books they will publish. No one minces words or pretties them up for the greater corporate benefit. (Of course, earnest beginners and senior management are regularly tempted to try, but as their efforts are usually met with gleeful derision and scorn they invariably wish they hadn't.)

Publishing companies often produce advanced information sheets that may be sent to customers or overseas publishers to gauge possible sales.
