I'm new to book authorship, how do I get started?
  • Begin by reading books on the subject you enjoy. Pay attention to the way they are written and the things you enjoy most about them. This will give you a head start on writing your own book.

Traditional, Subsidy or Multi-platform and Vanity Press publishing, what's the difference?
  • The differences between traditional and vanity press are soon obvious in the royalties you will earn. While the traditional house will typically pay 7–8% on paperback and 10% on hardback books, you will find the Multi-platform press, such as DocUmeant Publishing, will give a better percetage and provide services on demand. Finally the self-published author will pay all the fees, and hold all the rights. As a self-published author, you have to learn every step by yourself too. Either way you go, you must be willing to market your finished book.

What are some of the things that need to be budgeted for?
  • You need to look into all the factors that go into the creation of a book: printing, interior design, editing, cover design, bar code and that's just the beginning. Our DocUmeant Publishing Guide will help to answer this question and is available to you no strings attached.
