How to get a Jaya book publisher
It’s been a year since I went to the New York Times Book Festival, and I can’t help but feel a little nostalgic.
After all, the first time I ever heard the word “jaya” was when I was nine years old.
When my parents took me to see The Jungle Book in its original theatres, I was completely captivated by its story of a jungle-dwelling woman who must navigate a jungle with her baby son and the other inhabitants of a village.
(It’s not entirely clear whether I ever learned the word kaya, which means “to go with the flow.”)
And then there was The Good Dinosaur, a book that made me feel like I was reading the story of dinosaurs, because I had never heard of them.
When I finally read The Good Life, I felt like I had seen the book in its entirety, but for some reason, the movie still managed to impress me.
And now, after the death of my father, the opportunity to publish my own book has arrived.
But how do you get the book publisher of your dreams?
And how do they get the rights to the book you want?
And what are the chances of it getting published, given that the author has died?
It’s a daunting task.
“The best way to get the best deal for a book is to have a strong relationship with the publisher,” says Jaya Book Publishers’ president, John Rolfe.
It’s not that I don’t have advice to give. “
I’m not going to tell you what to do.
It’s not that I don’t have advice to give.
But I have to say that when you have a publisher that is doing great work, it can be very rewarding.
I think the biggest thing is to be careful what you wish for, and then work hard to make sure you’re getting what you want.
The best book publishers are the ones who have the courage to be willing to do the hard work and work with you to achieve the result you want.”
