Self-releases and resources
Self-released writers go alone and release a work without the help of a conventional editor. Self-released writers can either afford to charge for any typical services a publishing house offers, such as editorial or commercial work, or they can do this work themselves. Self-publishing has become a self-publishing phenomenon that has been eroding by the web and online publishing in recent years.
Publishing electronically makes it very simple for an editor to distribute his books as e-books and distribute digitally copied them. Yet, however, the ease of publishing e-books also means heightened competition for writers due to the growing number of e-books available. The Self-Publishing section contains a number of useful tools to help you find out more about self-publishing and advertising.

ISBN, International Standard Books Number, is a one-of-a-kind numerical system for identifying a bibliographic name or other book-like product (e.g. an e-book) to which it is associated.
Assigning an ISBN to a released item becomes a unambiguous identification only for that item and cannot be used a second one. The number allows bookstores, librarians, universities, wholesale dealers and bookstores to market a work efficiently. A ISBN is a number, not a bar code.
In January 2007, the ISBN system was converted to a 13-digit number. ISBNs can only be purchased from authorised government agencies and issued to publishing houses. Authors who wish to post themselves can buy an ISBN directly from the authorised agents.
Click on the following icons for more information about ISBNs. Bar code icons that appear on the back of booklets are known as Bookland EAN or ISBN-13 bar code icons. The EAN bar code is created from this number because a ledger already has a clear identification number, the ISBN.
For coding in an EAN-13 bar code, the numbers 978 or 979 are placed in front of the ISBN and the ISBN verifier (last digit) is substituted by a bar code verifier. In addition to the primary bar code icon, a five-digit "Add-On" bar code can also be displayed. Click on for more information: R.R.

LCCN (Library of Congress Control Number) is a clear system of ID numbers that the Library of Congress allocates to a catalogue entry that is stored for each of its catalogued volumes.
It is used by librarians to find certain Library of Congress catalogue entries in their country's databas. An LCCN would be a necessary citation if you plan to advertise your books to a library.
