ABSTRACT
The article discusses the experiences related to publishing of Jaun Valera, a novelist in the 19th century. In his letters exchanged with other writers he expressed his views concerned with his writing profession. His correspondences were thought to be an efficient medium of understanding the process of getting an article or a book published in the later half of 19th century. Prior to being a novelist his medium of expression was newspapers and periodicals. The ways adopted by writers to get their works published during that period are also mentioned in the article.
