Can you Publish your own BookAre you able to publish your own book?
Will you be able to post on Amazon in the traditional way? Can the same work be published on different sites such as Amazon and Lulu?
Nothing prevents you from taking a self-released product and reselling the right to a conventional publishing house. Your self-published product provides good information about how likely it is to be very successful to make a sale. Editors would rather have a few home run hits than a series of modest ones.
And if your self-published textbook doesn't sell well, a publishers won't want it. You' ve only given them dates that show them that your script is probably not going well. You' have shown them that you are not able to sell your books or make an interesting one. Perhaps you would have done better with a conventional editor - but would you do it really well enough?
As a self-released writer, if you are doing well, the publishing houses would like to take your work. This is one of the best-selling self-published titles (in any case in real format - the titles are sorted separately). I have already asked several publishing houses for the copyrights and I am sure I could get a lot more interest if I tried.
There is no question, I could have my choice of publishing houses and get very favourable conditions. So what could a publishing company possibly have in store for me? There' s no way they could boost my revenues enough to offset the huge cuts in licensing fees. So, yes, you can always release a traditional self-released work.
However, once they are of interest to a conventional publishers, they are no longer of interest to you. Of course, there are some exemptions - and a little grey area if your textbook is only a little succeed. Sometimes writers want certain things from one publishers, such as the know-how in dealing with film copyrights, the trustworthiness or the easiness to pass on the work to someone else.
It' lawful to postpone your publication privileges, but it almost never happens. This is because even eBooks themselves ruined the book sales markets to publisher and caused too much free trade rivalry. It is not that editors are sorry that self-publishers have ruined the fair, it is that they have gone on to exist.
When you are the uncommon typewriter and marketer, it can occur, but if so, it is in your best interest to work with a publishers right from the start. About 365,000 new printed titles will be released this year, while about 1,000 new eBooks will be out.
Both the eBook quota and the number of copies have declined in the last three years, while the sale of printed publications has increased. The advantages and emotive benefit of a large volume can be totally obscure. Indeed, the opportunities for selling and earning a salary with conventional publishers are about twelve-fold better, with the added benefit that you don't have to spend money on things and the improvement in the professional level.
However the shrinking eBook had also taken a big piece out of the big five homes, about 25% of their overall revenue in the last five years. You now have to rival free, self-published eBooks from Amazon. Another big shift in the flood and the launch of billions of eBook books is the best-selling book's death: here's a look at the cost of operating the publisher:
Use this table to see the advantages of different release and sales options: These figures show that it is ALWAYS better to use traditional publication unless you have a powerful vertical integration of the local markets. If so, why share the cash with Amazon? Is it traditional for you to be able to release a work after you have published it yourself on Amazon?
Theoretically, yes, there is no juridical or moral obstacle as long as the publishing house knows the circumstances. However, in reality most publishing houses reject such a work on the ground that they are not interested in re-printing something that is already available. If you publish a self-published Amazon eBook, your chance of sell it to a large publishing house is inferior.
Can the same publication be posted on different websites? I' ve got ledgers on half a dozen different sites (Amazon's CreateSpace, Amazon's Kindle, Nook Press, Lightning Source, Smashwords (which they distributed to several other outlets), Lulu, iTunes, etc.) without any problems. However, the only difference is when you register for one of the special offers, such as Kindle Select, where you give the Reseller exclusivity for a certain amount of years.
I tried Kindle Select and came to the conclusion that at least in my case it was totally unworthy of losing these other points of sale. Their experiences may differ. However, it is an optional, not a prerequisite if you are publishing on Kindle. They take the Amazon books and sold the right to a classic home.
Why would the old-fashioned home buy them from you? One of the greatest hurdles is to have enough sale to show that the product has business value (at least 10,000 books for a crowd-pleasing fictional home to be interested in). However, you also have to show that the product has a tremendous amount of unused advertising that the company knows how to use.
That is, you have to believe that with these 10,000 specimens you have achieved a small percentage of the overall bill. There are therefore no costs reductions at all when it comes to marking your books. But, if you subscribe to another ms with similar revenue potentials - but what still needs to be public?
They then have exactly the same cost and large purchases (because they receive the revenues from the purchases that correspond to those made by your book). Oh, and yes, you can use CS or KDP to post and still post elsewhere. However, if you want to post your iBook outside of KDP, you can NOT use KDP Select.
Unless you decide to use Amazon ("KDP Select", which is different from the regular KDP), you can resell your book anywhere and everywhere without being hindered by non-competition terms. Buy your book on your website, at Apple, Amazon, etc. When you register to be exclusively on Amazon, you cannot resell for 90 consecutive nights.
Amazons offer discounts for writers who are exclusively, inclusive some freebies and promotion holidays. Up to the publication according to tradition after the publication on Amazon, if you refer to the same product, then yes, but you would have to have a gargantuan next and great product message to attract interest of handed-down application. When you refer to creating extra works to be sold to publishers, often editors and agencies will take delivery of works unless they are first released themselves.
On a personal level you can make more profit with self-publishing - either 35 or 65/70 per cent, compared to 6-8 per cent in trade publication - if you are fortunate. Yes, but getting a editor after you have your copy on Amazon would necessitate that it is a moneymaker. Several self-pub titles have been taken up by conventional editors.
When you publish your own textbook, you can publish it on any platform. Only problem would be that you cannot have your eBook in the KDP Select programme unless Amazon has exclusiveness.
