How I can Publish my Light Novel?



  • Hello.
    My name is Aaron and I'm new here. Nice to meet you everyone.
    How I can publish here my Light Novel? And there is a possibility to translate into japanese language and of course to publish in Japan?
    Cheers.
    Aaron.


  • Translators

    @Aaron-Levv Are you published in English already?
    The best way to have a chance to get published in Japanese would be to have your novel be a big hit in English first.
    Otherwise you're just wasting your time.
    The one other possibility would be to pay or find a partner to translate it into Japanese and have them post it on syosetsu, and hope that the Japanese syosetsu audience really likes it. There are some Taiwanese light novels that are being translated into Japanese like that, but so far I don't know of any that has actually been officially picked up for publication in Japanese.



  • Why publish your book in here? Go to Amazon or google books to publish it online.



  • @aaron-levv sign with a publisher, hit it big with an English one first, when that happens the publisher would consider your request to do the English to Japanese translations, it's gonna be hard though, the LN market is tough.
