Browse: Home / An Idea of How to Publish a Book
By Ruth on October 14, 2011
However, I made two serious miscalculations. The first was that I thought the book wouldn’t be perceived as a self-published book if it was produced by its own press. The second mistake was just as dumb. I had no idea how important and how difficult the marketing part would be. So, although I’m not sorry I did my books the way I did, I couldn’t recommend that anyone else take the same route. But it doesn’t matter how you publish your book, if you aren’t a celebrity, you still have to learn how to do your own marketing.
The other day I had an idea of a much more sensible way to publish a book. When the book is finished, get it done by a print-on-demand publisher. I don’t think it’s very expensive. The publisher, if it is a reputable one, would get the ISBN and copyright and other numbers the book needs to have. Then get the book produced as an e-book for the Kindle, the Nook, and whatever others are around, because that’s where the sales are these days. After that, I would concentrate on internet marketing. Later on, when the book has got a large enough audience, it might make sense to do a beautiful hardcover version.
