There are a great many people wanting to become successful independent publishers. Enthused with a dream and powered by ambition they launch into publishing only to be rewarded for their efforts and financial investment by a garage full of unsold copies and a feeling of "where did I go wrong?" Basically the answer is: "You didn't do your homework. " You wouldn't expect to be able to fly a plane without first learning how to operate the controls. Don't expect to successfully publish without first learning the basics of what to do -- and what not to do! Here's where Pat Bell's The Prepublishing Handbook: What You Should Know Before You Publish Your First Book is invaluable. Bell will walk you through the process of publishing on your own with a well-organized series of "tips, tricks & techniques" for success. Beginning with an exploration of your options and expectations, the financial and personal commitments, the many job tasks that need to be performed (and the order of their performance), joining organizations, learning your market, and then making it all happen. From preparing the manuscript for publication to establishing your own business complete with name, structure, and financing. Bell also provides a wealth of recommended readings in every aspect of independent publishing, data resources, book selling organizations, and much more. There is a glossary and an index. The Prepublishing Handbook is vital reading for anyone contemplating becoming an independent publisher -- and a useful reference for established publishers as well! -- Midwest Book Review
