Whether it’s a guide you’ve produced with your local history society, a collection of poems you want to share with friends, or your epic novel that should surely earn you a fortune, this book will provide you with the practical advice and technical information you need to turn your manuscript into a finished book. It also provides valuable business guidance to ensure you have a clear understanding of your goals. For example: What do you want to achieve from publishing your own book? How much money can you afford to invest? If you intend to sell the book – and not everyone does – who do you think will buy it? Once you have made an informed decision to publish your own book, you’ll be guided through the process step-by step: book industry registration, classifications and copyright; pricing and margins; preparing your manuscript for print; format and design options; finding a printer and deciding the print run; marketing and advertising your book; and sales and distribution advice.
