You should start by setting the subject of your book. This is what the book is talking about. Subject should be small and attractive. As a result you will not face competition from big publishers. Fiction subjects are selling highly and are not heavily discounted.
You should do some research. It is important that when you are doing research look for the titles that are competitive and you think about how you want to make yours look better. You should also find out if the books are selling or not to decide if the title is good or not. This can be done through popular book selling websites to see which types of titles are selling more than others. The bookshops will be able to tell you the types of books are selling and which types of books people are asking.
Paperback or hard cover are some of the formats you can use to make your book. What makes big difference between paperback and hard cover is the quality and price. Don’t go for hard cover if you have less money but instead use paperback even if it is not very impressive. But if you use hard cover your books will increase in value and you may end up getting a lot of money.
You should therefore make copies of your book. You can either print by yourself if you have printer or you can hire printing services at a fee. It is always advisable that you shop around as you look for affordable and quality printing services.
Consider using print on demand publishers. This is where you send a computer file to the print on demand printer. Print on demand printer only prints the book that are on sale only. You will be able to curb wastage and save some money at long last.
Apart from that you should look for ISDN for your book. The International Standard Book Number is a unique code that is used in identifying your book in the book market.
You should then decide how you want to distribute your books. Going to the book distributor to distribute books for you is the best way. The distributor will charge a percentage of cover price on distributing books.
You can decide how you want to market your book by yourself. This can be done through book selling website or you do the through social media. Word of mouth is also an effective tool for marketing.
