Mini-Quiz: Routes to Getting Your Fiction Book Published

by Ron Kurtus (updated 6 June 2022)

Take this Mini-Quiz to check your understanding of the lesson material.

1. Why would a major publisher turn you down?

Your book was too hot to handle

You were not good looking enough to put a picture on the cover

Your subject matter would not fit into their mold

2.What happens after the vanity press prints your book?

They send you as many copies as you want to buy

They put you on a world-wide promotion tour

They put your book in the top bookstores

3. What is the problem with publishing through your own business?

People will look down on you

It can be a lot of extra work

It forces you to finish writing your book

If you got all three correct, you are on your way to becoming a Champion in Fiction Writing. If you had problems, you had better look over the material again.
