I’ve been doing tons of research about who was going to be printing both my cookbook and then my self-help self-exploration workbook.
Educating myself on firstly what options I have as a writer publisher is imperative, and there’s a lot of choices!
I’m looking at possibly indie publishing on create a space that would create real books with covers and pages on demand and Kindell which is more popular than even Google Books from what I’ve read.
There’s the business of your ISBN number, your copyright, and making sure you do it correctly, and then there’s something called Digital Rights Management, which make sure that you get credit for the books you have for sale if they are an e- book.
Who would believe that printing a book could be so complicated, huh?
I’m also writing a book proposal and I will send to two specific Publishers regarding my 2 books. Nancy Baggett, who’s good a friend of mine on Facebook, is my mentor. She has written numerous award-winning books and is extremely prolific. If I had one book that did as well as hers, I’d be elated.
Nancy was explaining that you write the book proposal selling your book to a major publisher before the book is even finished.
Everyone at the Publishing Company sits around the round table, so to speak, and they discuss whether they feel your book is worth buying into. If they fall in love with your concept and believing you is it writer then they will give you money in advance and pay for the books be printed and deal with the marketing and everything.
I am going to sign off for now mainly because my Galaxy Note 4 that I’m typing this on using vocal recognition software is about to die!
I hope this information helps someone out there and it would be interesting to hear from other writers and people who haven’t written their first book like me yet but who are working on it.
If you have any great tips to share to make the whole process easier please do it.
Have a fantastic day from Paulette Le Pore Motzko in Las Vegas, Nevada.
