How to Self-Publish Your First Book is a quick and simple guide with one mission: to encourage those who always thought of writing a book but didn't know where to begin because getting it published sounded all too hard. Heidi was working as a makeup artist for many years, until one day in 2007, she decided to write the 'how to' book on makeup - something that was practical and easily implementable. However, she soon discovered that writing didn't come as easy to her as picking up a makeup brush. After nearly calling it quits throughout the many challenges faced at every twist and turn of the process, in the end perseverance prevailed and - although she felt she didn't know what she was doing - her determination to finish what she started eventually lead to her book's national success. Buoyed by this experience, Heidi documented the route she took as a self-taught author and wrote a book on how to write a book, and all she had learned about what not to do in the process of bringing a book to market. After both books were picked up and sold through major book stores Australia-wide, she has gone on to successfully publish a further four books. How to Self-Publish Your First Book will arm you with the confidence to start small and work your way up. You don't have to know everything! Just focus on what you want to share with the world.

I'm here to tell you that thanks to self-publishing and technology the ease with which you can find experts to help you, getting your ideas into a real published book for almost no money is a reality. This book goes through the exact process I have used to publish 5 books. Did I mention I have a full-time job, am a husband and father to 10-year-old twins? I have no time or I don't know where to start are no longer excuses you can use, please grab a copy and see for yourself.When I started my career as a software engineer, I avoided picking up my telephone because I was unsure of what to say. I kept my head down and didn't speak up because I didn't want to do or say the wrong thing, asking a question in class, forget about it. In fact, if someone had asked me to get up on stage and share my work, I would have been terrified.But over the past 20 years, I'm happy to say I've gone through a huge personal transformation. I feel as though I can talk to anyone, anywhere and am bursting with confidence.

Many people want to become a published author, but they lack the patience or persistence to do so. It's a daunting process to find an agent and a publisher. Even if you're lucky enough to get picked up by a traditional publisher, it can take a year or more before your book is even published, and even longer to receive your first royalty check. For this reason, many give up on their dreams entirely. They throw in the towel and think they will never have a chance to make it in the tough world of publishing. If you feel that way, think again! Self-publishing could be exactly what you need to get your book published and making money right away! With self-publishing, you won't have to wait several months to hear back from publishers. You won't have to endure countless rejection letters. And you certainly won't have to wait a year or more for your book to be published. You could have your first book published and earning money in just a few days! So let's get started.

We live in the golden age of the photography book. Since the early 1990s, the number of photography book publishers has continued to grow while technological developments have placed more tools for bookmaking directly in the hands of photographers. For the students and working artists who have chosen photography as their primary means of expression, having their own photography book is seen as a passport to the international photography scene. Yet, few have more than a tentative grasp of the component parts of a book, an understanding of what they want to express, or the know-how needed to get a book published. Publish Your Photography Book is the first book to demystify the process of producing and publishing a book of photographs. Industry insiders Darius D. Himes and Mary Virginia Swanson survey the current landscape of photography book publishing and point out the many avenues to pursue and pitfalls to avoid. This expert guide is organized in six sections covering the rich history of the photo book; anoverview of the publishing industry; an intimate look at the process of making a book; a close review of how to market aphoto book; a section on case studies, built around discussions and interviews with published photographers; and a final section presenting a wealth of resources and information to aid in the understanding of the publishing world. Publish Your Photography Book also includes a number of additional interviews and contributions from industry professionals, including artists, publishers, designers, packagers, editors, and other industry experts who openly share their publishing experiences.

Content of this book defies my own 2-point advice to authors. 1. Never publish your own book. A professional publisher has own network of clients. Your book may land in many libraries and many bookseller shops soon after it is printed. 2. Never distrust your publisher. Royalty paid to Authors is the main factor behind success stories of well settled publishers. Publishers with-holding Authors’ share come and go; they generally don’t settle in business. In case you have irresistible apprehensions against a publisher, first divorce that publisher. You gain little in canvassing against a publisher. A genuine publisher invests own money. The Author is supposed to be paid and not to pay. Around 1968, my publisher Jaypee Brothers, provided me a ream of paper, pens, ink, pencils I used for writing manuscript.
