Tips on Publishing Your Own Book
The first thing you should do while publishing a book yourself is to set the book subject. The subject just entails what the book is talking about. Use a small but attractive subject. As a result you will not face competition from big publishers. For your advantage you should go for fiction subjects as they sell highly and they are not heavily discounted.
You should do some research. While doing research look for the titles that are competitive and you think about how you want to make yours look better. Another thing you should do is to 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. This can also be done by visiting the popular bookshops to inquire with them the types of books are selling and which types of books people are asking for.
Paperback or hard cover are some of the formats you can use to make your book. What makes big difference between paperback and hard cover is the quality and price. 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.
Then you should print as many copies as you want. If you have a printer you can buy the papers and print by yourself but if you don’t you will need to higher printing services. It is always advisable that you shop around as you look for affordable and quality printing services.
Preferably use print on demand publishers. It means sending of computer file on print on demand printer. Print on demand printer only prints the book that are on sale only. This is going to ensure that you don’t go at a loss of making much wastage.
Apart from that you should look for ISDN for your book. A unique code that is used in identifying your book in the book market is known as International Standard Book Number.
You should then decide how you want to distribute your books. Going to the book distributor to distribute books for you is the best way. The books will be distributed on discount of the cover price.
You should be ready to do marketing of the book by yourself. This can be done through book selling website or you do the through social media. You can do it yourself by the word of mouth.
