Book publishing offers a variety of careers
Trisha Bhattacharya, Feb 21, 2013:

Books wouldn’t make it to libraries or our homes, if it weren’t for authors and book publishers. Book publishing is a viable career and business path, and has been successfully carried out by many men and women entrepreneurs and individuals, across the country.

Fiction and non-fiction writers, and poets find their work journeying to bookstores, libraries, people’s bookshelves, and into the hands of readers majorly because of the enterprising minds of book-publishers.

Book publishing, is a booming industry, not only for entrepreneurs, but also for authors, who find true credence only when volumes of their work are in print, and in supply, catering to the demands of the readers. The industry doesn’t stop offering opportunities here. In fact, it allows tributaries from other professions to stream into it. Book publishers hire book editors, copyeditors, illustrators, book designers, technicians, printers and other professionals who take care of all the gradations involved in the process of book publishing. Publishers also speak to literary agents, who lead them to good literary writers whose work they can develop and market.

Planning publication schedules, editing the manuscripts, designing the book, production related jobs, printing of the book, and activities centered on marketing, publicity, and advertising of the book are all tasks delegated to different departments within a publishing house. From these arise numerous flourishing career opportunities. Understanding intricate stages of book publishing will shed more light on the professional skills required to find employment opportunities.
