What one time was a business dominated by big publishing houses and single names in the industry has changed dramatically thanks to instant technologies that allow print on demand options for self published books.

This newfound freedom to interact with the publishing world has produced many first time and celebrated writers.This book was written to provide a complete overview of everything that you need to know to start printing your own books on demand.

You will learn the essentials of trade publishing such as distribution and returns, frontlist and backlist, and imprints. The Print on Demand model will be outlined for you with 10 of the most common myths, the current technologies available, and the economics of the process.The top publishing on demand companies and writers were contacted and interviewed for this book and have provided their insights to help new writers navigate the complex world of publishing.
