The free ISBN is no bargain when you consider that by purchasing ISBNs 1,000 at a time POD publishers can get them for $1 each. And, the larger POD publishers who purchase 10,000 or more can get them for even less than a dollar. When a POD publisher gives you an ISBN free, they are purchasing your right to take your book to another printer for under $1.
This can be important and it saved me $3 per book on my first POD project. Had I not owned the ISBN I would have been stuck with the higher price and reduced profit.
To protect your investment of time and money in your book, purchase your ISBN for Bowker, Inc. at: https://www.myidentifiers.com/isbn/main .
One ISBN will cost you $125 but for $250 you can get 10 ISBNs and for $575 you can get 100 ISBNs. As a small publishing company I purchase 10 at a time and if you have any intention of writing more than one book or ebook, I suggest you do the same.
My new book Self Publishing: Writing A Book and Publishing Books and eBooks For Yourself and Others will be published on July 31, 2012 but is available in prepublication for a 25% discount and free shipping anywhere in the Continental USA.
This book, based entirely on first-hand experience, doesn’t show you a half dozen plus ways to write and publish a book. Instead, it contains in-depth, step-by-step, instructions and clear screen shots on one proven method that works for writing, editing, and publishing your own books and ebooks successfully.
Writing and publishing a quality book can be a complex, costly, and difficult job. The idea is just the beginning followed by a long list of tasks including planning, outlining, and then actually writing every chapter, making certain it is well organized and easy to read.
After all that, the manuscript has to be edited carefully and then you have to create a print-ready file for the POD printer.
Part of the process includes creating a great title that will draw potential book buyers and be easy to read on an interesting cover even as a small image on a web site. Then you need to create the web site to tell everyone all the details about your new book and how they can get a copy.
This is a long list of steps and handling each one professionally will contribute to creating and selling a quality book. Self Publishing: Writing A Book and Publishing Books and eBooks For Yourself and Others carefully details a step-by-step proven method for creating a quality book to help you publish successfully.
