Judging a Self-Published Book by Its Cover

Possessing a book affords you instant power and enhanced credibility. This opens the door to speaking engagements, consulting and coaching opportunities. Non-fiction author? Why don’t you turn your book into an internet course? Many course creators struggle to produce content or structure their material so that learners can follow it easily. If you currently have a book, you’re already several steps ahead. Your table of contents provides the course framework and structure, while each chapter can be turned into a separate module. Leverage even among these opportunities and your book could soon offer you multiple revenue streams and much greater earnings than royalties alone.

The best part about using an internet publisher is that you remain in control of your job and how much you want to bill for your own work. You can arrange for your book to be offered in which you decide to get it sold. You can sell your book strictly online through one of the big outlets and you can also sell it as a digital work. If you have a book you know will do nicely, it’s well worth the investment to cover the fee to get it published. Obviously you can still send your manuscript out to conventional publishers and see what happens but using an online publisher guarantees that your book will be put into print.

Once your book is written, polished and properly formatted, it can be available to your readers to buy within a matter of days. With traditional publishers, you can wait months, sometimes years, for the book to appear. Nowadays, the only real drag on your publishing deadline is how quickly you, not the publishing house, can respond. Well, what do you feel about that so far? You may already have guessed that how to develop characters is a vast field with much to find out. It is really similar to other related issues that are important to people.

You never really know about any one aspect because there are a lot of diverse situations. If you are unsure about what is needed for you, then just take a closer look at your particular situation. The rest of our talk will add more to what we have mentioned so far.

Even if a traditional publisher agrees to publish your book, you can earn more money by going it alone. It all hinges on the percentage of exemptions you can earn and you can make a much higher percent (between 30% and 70 percent) if you self-publish, when compared with the 12 percent to 20% a traditional publisher might offer you. And, for eBooks you market and disperse yourself, you can even keep 100% of the royalties.

Getting a book you can sell online, at personal appearances, and also in your workplace does not need to be long and expensive. If you only want to give the book out to family members and friends, it can be rapid and affordable. It’s only a bit more involved than duplicating pages and having them jumped at an insta print store, but you receive an elegant book. The above really only just begins to scratch the surface of what is available concerning writing character sheet. Take a look at what is happening on your end, and that may help you to refine what you need. Even though it is important to every person concerned, there are important variables you should keep in mind. No matter what, your careful attention to the matter at hand is something you and all of us have to do. We will now move ahead and talk more about a few points in depth.

Pick up any current copy of either Writer’s Digest, The Writer and even Poets and Writers Digest and you’ll probably see a pay or at least one big story on self-publishing. Clearly, the times of thinking that traditional publishing is the only means to receive your book published are all over. That’s the good-maybe the excellent news for writers bursting with a story to tell.

A millionaire many times over left this statement several years back on his blog:… I’m not going to publish in the morgue of the publishing business again… The book publishing industry is dead and they do not know it.”

Particularly for prospective non-fiction authors, self-publishing may be the only method to get your work out there. Not because there is anything wrong with your book, but because most conventional publishers do not expect to make enough profit from books they consider ‘too market’, or that have too small a market of potential buyers. However, that does not mean there is not enough profit in it for the author, particularly when publication costs are low. Besides, profiting from book sales isn’t the only motive for writers wanting to view their books published.

Take for example Joseph Finder, author of the best-selling corporate espionage book, Paranoia. He had had moderate success with his previous well-written CIA suspense books, but didn’t hit it big until he inadvertently created a totally new genre with Paranoia. In his words, “All I was doing was trying something new – a thriller with a new setting, a new cast of characters.”

If you can get a conventional publisher, the publisher will manage editing, proofreading, cover layout, layouts, bookmarking, ISBNs, Library of Congress amounts, and the multitude of details that different professional book publishing out of amateur. If you’re published by an established publisher, you get credibility. These are worth a whole lot. But you will still have to encourage the book yourself.

You do not need to be in bookstores anymore once you can sell your book on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, turn it into a Kindle or Nook book and even an audio book which can be sold on Audible and iTunes. I’m sure I am leaving plenty of businesses and platform choices out because the simple fact is that there are so many of them and the market is growing as you read this. The truth is, your book can reach the whole globe the instant it is published and just about anyone can write a book. I will cover that in next month’s article.

Or, how about Nora Raleigh Baskin, popular author of middle-grade books such as In the Company of Crazies (HarperCollins). She’d had a knee-high pile of rejection letters until she wrote the book she’d always wanted to write – not because she wanted to be published, but since she wanted to write this particular book. This 1 book, which she wrote from her heart, got her on the road to a successful writing career.
