What You Must Know About Book Printing
With the advent of new technology especially the internet, we thought that it would be the dooms day for books. But itís not. In fact more and more people are motivated to read more. And through the internet, making books and selling them has fueled offline readership.
You see books play a vital role in fueling literacy in the society. Books are the source of information of people. Because of this thereís a growing demand for more books to be published. And this results in the need for more practical solutions on how to publish books that stimulates readership.
Printing books is not that easy because you have to write pages and pages of stories or articles to make that book whole. And as an author you have two options on how you can have your books be published. Thereís traditional publishing and self-publishing. Whatís the difference of the two?
Traditional publishing is when the publisher prints book that is written by someone and give the author of that book a royalty fee whenever the book is sold in a bookstore. The nice thing about this book printing technique is that you donít have to worry anymore about the printing cost. It is the publisher who will take care of the book print production.
On the other hand, self-publishing is when you look for a publisher to get your books printed. Youíre the one who pay all the production costs. So basically thereís more hassle in your part as an author because you write the book and youíre also the one who have to take charge of the setup cost.
Now itís up to you which one you will choose. But if you want your publishers to meet you expectations, it would be best if you would devise a publishing plan for yourself. Itís the best way to steer clear of any disappointment in the future.
Tell to your publisher what it is that you really want and see to it that you know which book printing option to choose Ė is it traditional publishing that you want or self-publishing? Ask yourself these questions:
1. What do you want your book to become? Do you want to market a product in your book or you want to be a gift that anyone can give out or you just want to impart some information to the readers?
2. Do you want to make a lot of money out of your book?
3. Would you choose the traditional approach in publishing? What are you looking for in a publisher? Do you have the budget for book printing?
4. How many books do want to print? How important is book-selling to you?
Well, these are just a few of the questions that you have to ask yourself before you decide on printing your books. This is to prevent errors and to avoid waste of time and money.
