How to Publish Your Own Book
When you want to publish a book you should start by setting the book subject. This is what the book is talking about. Subject should be small and attractive. This is going to save you from competing with big publishers. For your advantage you should go for fiction subjects as they sell highly and they are not heavily discounted.
Another thing that you should do is proper research. You should 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. This can be done through popular book selling websites to see which 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.
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. You will earn a lot of money from using hard cover since it is very impressive and increases the value of the book.
The next thing you should do is to produce the copies of your book. You can either print by yourself if you have printer or you can hire printing services at a fee. You should compare the prices and go for quality and affordable service.
You should check out print on demand publishers. It involves the sending of computer file on print on demand printer. Print on demand printer only prints the book that are on sale only. You will be able to curb wastage and save some money at long last.
Apart from that you should look for ISDN for your book. This is known as the International Standard Book Number that is used in identifying your book in the book trade.
You should then decide how you want to distribute your books. The most reliable method is by the use of a book distributor. The distributor will charge a percentage of cover price on distributing books.
You can also prepare to do the marketing of your books. You can use social media platform or book selling website to market your books. You can also market the book by the word of mouth.
