Hi! I'm Dane Carlson, and welcome to the Business Opportunities Weblog. I've been publishing this website, by myself, and sometimes with the help of others for over twelve years now. You'll notice two things about this site right away:

  • We have tons of content. In fact, since November 2011, I've published more than 26,000 posts on thousands of different business ideas and opportunities.
  • We don't sell much advertising. In late 2013, I realized that by selling advertising, what I was really selling was my readers. In 2014, I've already radically cut down on the number of ads and will hopefully keep cutting.

Home Based Business Opportunities:

Starting out to publish your book is no different than starting out in any other profession. You can’t get hired if you don’t have experience, and you can’t get experience if no one will hire you! Book publishers prefer to read manuscripts submitted by literary agents. Literary agents don’t handle unpublished authors. However, there are publishers who will read unsolicited manuscripts from unpublished authors. This article lists the basic steps to follow when submitting an unsolicited manuscript as a first time author.

1. Research the publishers who handle the type of book you have written.
2. Get the writer’s guidelines.
3. Call the publishers.
4. Prepare your manuscript.
5. Write your query letter.
6. Write your synopsis.
