This is an easy-to-read volume that shows just how any writer can become the published author of his or her own book. Using information from her own experiences, the author of Publish Your Own Book shows the reader how to: copyright a book and get the Library of Congress number, work with a printer, choose and eye-catching cover, determine a profitable cover price, get free publicity, promote the book on radio and television, work with a co-author (if desired), get the book reviewed in major newspapers, sell through the mail, sell through distributors, and much more. Getting a book accepted and published today by one of the major publishing houses is difficult, and for many excellent writers, nearly impossible. For that reason, hundreds of authors are choosing to self-publish their own books. This book shows how to do just that.Your starting point in knowing how many pages your f inished book will contain begins with knowing how many words (or typed pages) your manuscript contains. The average double-spaced typed manuscript page contains about 250 words.
