There are no shortage of guides out there and pyramid schemes trying to get your dollars to tell you how to sell more books.
I got tired of seeing these, so I decided to build Werdist.
For now, this is just a list of literary journals who accept submissions. If you’ve self-published a book, and you’ve sold copies on your own… kudos. Keep it up!
To be honest I don’t think there’s a silver bullet to selling books that’s more effective than getting your words out there. The publications contained here are available across multiple resources.
There are books.
There are websites that contain them.
But I’m hoping this becomes the resource for self-published authors, Independent authors, and even authors at big publishing houses. The idea is simple: go where the readers are.
Browse the categories and pitch whoever you like.
I’m hoping not only does this help more of us beginners get our names out there, but that ultimately it helps these publications get more submissions and more readers.
Have fun, and feel free to leave suggestions or notes in the comments!
