What do you need to Publish a BookSo what do you need to publish a book?
The reason why every entrepreneur should help himself
In the last seven years I have written eight novels, five with publishing houses (Wiley, Penguin, HarperCollins), one cartoon book and the last two I have made. This article gives the detailed information on all my bookings and progress with my established publishing houses. While the judges are still working on my self-published book "How to be the Luckiest Man Alive" and "I Was Blinds But Now I See", I can tell you that these two have already produced more than my five titles together with conventional publishing houses.
When you, the businessman, publish a book yourself that you stick out, make more moneys, step your opponents right in the 20th, and you look surprisingly chill at chill party. but I can always have sexual intercourse with anyone in the room at the party with my own comicbook.
There is no need for self-publication instead of a conventional publication, there is no need for businessmen to do self-publication, and lastly, HOW to deal with self-publication? More and more book companies are under pressure from shrinking book retailers, so that they in turn have to put the authors under pressure. If you publish your book yourself, you can have it up and running within a few working hours at Amazon, Papierback and Kindnes.
Publishing with a conventional publishers is a gruelling process: book proposals, agencies, attorneys, meetings, editorials, packages, catalogues, etc., which will ensure that your book is not released until a year later. Virtually as I am writing this, a mate of mine has just told me the particulars of his book business, which he has just completed with a major publishing house.
Release date: 2014. So, of course, I talked about my book during my normal section. That is to say, the publishing house has done NOTHING, but is committed to EVERYTHING. Finally, writers (unless you are Stephen King, etc.) have to do their own bookmaking. And the first questions editors ask before looking at your suggestion is: "How big is your plattform?
" You want to know how you can promote the book and whether you can earn cash with your own brand. D ) Better emoluments, i.e. if I publish myself, I make about 70% emoluments instead of 15% emoluments with a conventional one. Have a look at this SuperCash sleeve created for me by a local publishers (this was my third book).
Have a look at the front page of my last book (self-publication), "I Was Blinds But Now I See". but it'?s exactly what I wanted. Publishing houses even incorporate in the agreement that they have the last word on the front page and this is a detail they will not do.
I' ve just enough footage on my blogs (including my "drafts" file with 75 unreleased articles) to publish five more in the next year. I am sure that this number will rise over the next year as I post more. Present some (or all) of your suggestions in a book.
Just take it down on paper. Most of the articles in the blogs are "evergreen", i.e. they last forever and are not time-specific. When you only take the contributions (mentioned in the point above) and publish them, they will say: "He only publishes a compilation of contributions". So? It' okay if you curate what you think are your best contributions.
For a small fee you can get this cure and see it in a different size. Don't just take a compilation of your contributions. As a rule, a diary entry consists of 500-2000 words. A larger version of the book, using genuine materials to illustrate why this book, with these sections, is presented in this way, is a different reading than the blogs.
Do you have a section that specifically explains how the book differs from the blogs. In my last book "I Was BlindbutNow I See" I had in every section genuine materials and several sections that were totally new. Rather than being a compilation of contributions, the whole book was about how we have been brained in our societies and how the discovery of the brainshed and the application of the technologies I have described can be lucky.
It was treated in much more detail than the blogs ever could, although the footage was based on several of my contributions. is an additional marketing tool for you to promote your blogs. You' re not going to make a million bucks with your book (well, maybe you will - never say that), but just being able to say, "I'm a public author" expands your credentials as a writer/speaker/enterpreneur if you go there now to distribute your book, synthesize your blogs or chat somewhere else, etc...
If you' re giving a speech, you can give something now - your book! This makes Amazon and Publishers a high-performance advertising agency for your entire text /voice/consulting careers. There are those who want the trustworthiness to say "Penguin has released me". No one ever asked me who my editor was when Penguin was my editor.
And by the way, Penguin was the poorest editor I ever had. You can' t take them there. Bookshops often look at what's going on at Amazon and then order the book from the publishing houses. Throughout the years, in many cases, traditional editors take their best known authors (so if you are in this class, congratulations!) and charge to present them in a bookshop.
In my opinion, my tradtional editors would get some of my booklets in capital city bookshops (i.e. NYC and that's it) but nothing more. First, please type the book. I have taken some of my last two self-published titles as noted above, rewritten parts of them, added parts of them, added originals, added new sections and gave an overall view of what the book was about, as against it was just a chance album of post.
You let them choose the book you want and then they have Microsoft Word artwork that you are downloading to help shape your book. I did it myself for my first book, for a small charge for my second book, I asked Alexanderbecker.net to do the formatting, the book artwork and the PDF I made.
Had I not hired Alex to do the artwork, I could have used over 1mm of Createspace's possible artwork (I did for my first book) and the whole publication in softcover would be free. The first 20 pieces I gave to my blogs' users who asked for them were free of charge.
I' ve been distributing the book at lecture events. In total I will give about 10 lectures and publish my latest book. I' m writing a diary about how the boo0k differs from the diary and why I used it. You are responsible for your own advertising campaigns (as distinct from a book publisher).
In a new diary, for example, I discuss the difference between my latest book and my diary and also offer a promotional offer on how I can get my next self-published book ("Bad Behavior", due in Q1 2012) for free. To write a book makes you an authority on the subject. If you give someone a book you've written, it's more amazing than a calling cards.
It' s proof that you have enough experience to make this book. Five different volumes are scheduled for next year. There' s no one I need confirmation from. If you have any further question, please do not hesitate to contact me.
