How to Publish Your Own Book
You should start by setting the subject of your book. This is the theme of the book. The subject should be fairly small and attractive. This is going to prevent big publishers from competing with you yet you can still make some money on the book. For your advantage you should go for fiction subjects as they sell highly and they are not heavily discounted.
It is important that you do some 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. You can do the search on popular book selling websites to see which types of titles are selling more than others. The bookshops will be able to tell you the types of books are selling and which types of books people are asking.
You should also decide the format you want to use either a hard cover or paperback. The difference between paper back and hard cover is that hard cover tends to be costly. If you have less money you can go for paper cover though it is not very impressive as compared to hard cover. Hard cover is going to boost the value of your book and this may result into high income.
You should therefore make copies of your book. 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. 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. This is going to ensure that you don’t go at a loss of making much wastage.
You should then get 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. 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 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 also market the book by the word of mouth.
