Self Publishing informationInformation on self-publication
Self-published advice and information from Jonathon Clifford
A way for an writer to see his work printed is self-publication, but as this became more accepted, some vainty editors try to impersonate self-publishers. In order for a work to be really publishable, a name called " editor " by the writer as his editor must appear on the copyrights page of the work and the book's ISBN number must be recorded by the ISBN agency for this writer as a editor.
Any and all duplicates of a self-published textbook are the authors proprietors. In case an editor does not want to be engaged in the sales and marketing of his work, which is very easy to explain - if the detail of a work is sent to the ISBN agency before publishing, there is a section on the Distributor (if different from Publisher) page.
There is a section on the front page of each volume which essentially reads: "All copyrights reserved. Nothing in this publication may be saved on a file system or transferred in any way without the previous written consent of the publisher". It is not permitted, I reiterate, without the editor's consent.
Every business that is publishing its own name or masthead can by nature not help the writers with self-publication. When the name of the business, not the name of the writer, appear in the title as that of the editor, the writer cannot only not say that he has released his own title, but that he has simply given up on it.
If, after the first release, someone wants to make large specimens (for the visually impaired), take over movie or TV copyrights or re-print them under their own pressure or translate one copy, (sometimes very lucrative) charges have to be made.
However, it is legally'to the publisher' that such a request must be made and it is legally'to the publisher' not the writer - although he has been made to believe that he has himself made his work public - who will profit from it. When it comes to the fair editor, maybe not very much.
There have always been so many "out there" whose purpose is to free the careless from their own funds, supported by the possibility of referring to themselves in deceptive notions. The majority of vainty publishing houses make very similar allegations and of the more than 100 data sets about such businesses that I have, only a small part has made grievances against them.
If, over the years, it turns out that a trader is sincere in his assertions and a man of his words does what he wants, there is no issue. They are those whose right to be self-publishers is only a trick to draw the careless writer and disguise their dishonesty that makes it necessary to monitor the way all vain-editors relate to themselves.
With those who are determined to fleece the careless writer, it is not possible to tell from their advertising whether a publishers is real or not, except by long-term tracking of the performances of each of them. Only when at least one complete publication lifecycle has been concluded by the enterprise will it become clear whether the allegedly provided service is true or false.
