A big question of book publication: Self-publication or use of a conventional company?
Everyone who has authored a book knows that one of the big issues these times is how to make it public. You will contribute your trustworthiness and manufacturing competence as well as your own sales and distribution relationships. Let a large publishing house inspire you for your book and get on your way to the race! Now that I have authored three volumes with a number of publishing houses (Breakthrough Marketings Plan, Defence Your Burn and Kellogg on Branding), I know that the choice is not so clear.
Publishers can even cancel the book at any time. The publishers sometimes do a good work with the products, sometimes not. Though Palgrave did a great work with my book Definitive Your Brands, it did a painful weak one with the first issue of Breakthrough Marketing Plan.
If you' re working with an operative, give up a reasonable portion of it. You' ll get the book free of charge and you' ll get a small deposit that you have to repay through the emoluments. With respect to branding assistance, for almost all accounts the branding is quite accurate up to you.
In fact, most accounts only have a few pieces to them. An extremely popular book could be sold for 5,000 pieces. Storage and replenishment then accounts for 25% of this amount, resulting in $37,500. You' re looking at a print price of $3 a book, you' re down to $22,500. These must include editorial, styling and sales.
There' s just not much cash to work with at this time, so publishing houses won't be investing much in the promotion of your book. Authors do the market. They own the manufacturing processes, the allocation processes and all revenues. They have full oversight of the end result. You' re likely to loose cash on every book you buy, but that's up to you.
You have to do all the work in self-publishing: designing, giving names, producing. In my book about the presentation, I found that neither was too attractive. But I didn't want to produce the book myself - I have a nightmare about a book in my own workshop. The second page is responsible for editorial, styling, production, sales and some sales and promotion.
We think about the book's name, design and promotion work. I am looking forward to our advances.
