You’ve decided to self-publish, and your manuscript is edited, polished, and ready to go . . . So what’s next?
At Blessingway, we have managed every aspect of book publishing on national and international levels. The world of self-publishing can be tricky to navigate, and we are here to help you avoid some of the pitfalls by answering your questions, such as:
We’ll help you with forms and applications—getting an International Standard Book Number (ISBN), Library of Congress Control Number (LCCN), Cataloging-in-Publication (CIP) data block, and a UPC code (bar code), and copyrighting your text, illustrations, and design.
Learn how to determine break-even points, decide on the size of a print run, price the book, set wholesale and quantity discount schedules, and arrange for creative financing.
Benefit from our experience in finding the best-quality printing at the lowest price.
We’ll work with you to develop a marketing plan; contact distributors, trade and library wholesalers, and bookstore chains; establish a presence at bookseller and library trade shows; and approach specialty (nonbookstore) markets.
Get professional assistance in creating attention-grabbing press releases, obtaining cover-copy endorsements from well-known people, getting your book reviewed, setting up book signings and readings, and gaining media attention.
Learn to take care of the ongoing niggling details of publishing such as bookkeeping, order fulfillment, and tax filing as painlessly as possible.
Consulting is available on an hourly basis. We look forward to sharing our experience and insights with you.
