How to Publish Your Own Book
When you want to publish a book you should start by setting the book subject. The subject just entails what the book is talking about. Use a small but attractive subject. This is going to save you from competing with big publishers. Fiction subjects are selling highly and are not heavily discounted.
You should do some research. It is important that when you are doing research look for the titles that are competitive and you think about how you want to make yours look better. You should also find out if the books are selling or not to decide if the title is good or not. By visiting the popular book selling websites you will be in a position to see the types of titles are selling more than others. You can also visit the popular bookshops to inquire with them the types of books are selling and which types of books people are asking.
You should decide how you want the back of your book to look either using a hard cover or a paperback. Using a hard cover is very expensive as it is going to cost you a lot of money unlike paperback which are cheap. Even though paperback is not very impressive as compared to hard cover you should use it if you have less money. But if you use hard cover your books will increase in value and you may end up getting a lot of money.
You should therefore make copies of your book. In case you don’t have a printer you will need to higher printing services or if you have one you will just buy the materials and print on your own. Do not be in a hurry to print go for a printer that is affordable and produces quality work.
You should check out print on demand publishers. This is where you send a computer file to the print on demand printer. This means that you print only the books that are on sale. This is going to ensure that you don’t go at a loss of making much wastage.
Make sure you get the ISDN number for you book. This is known as the International Standard Book Number that is used in identifying your book in the book trade.
You should therefore make a decision on the mode you want to use to distribute your books. Going to the book distributor to distribute books for you is the best way. You should pay the book distributor a percentage of the cover price as his fee.
You can also prepare to do the marketing of your books. Some of the places where you can market your book is through book selling website or through social media. You can do it yourself by the word of mouth.
