Dr Kirsty Bunting, Senior Lecturer at Manchester Metropolitan University's Manchester Writing School Are you an unagented novelist managing your own writing career? Have you written a book and don't know where to start with getting a publisher? Have you been offered publishing contract - and need to check it's legitimate one? This book will help you: Understand Copyright Get some insight into the publishing process Learn what to look for in a publishing contract (and save money by asking the right questions when talking to lawyers) Know what to expect when dealing with agents and publishers I have worked in the Intellectual Property (IP) and licensing sector for over a decade. I'm also a novelist and creative writing mentor. Over the years I've answered a lot of questions from authors who are at the start of their traditional publishing careers. Many writers find the business of licensing IP confusing and contracts impenetrable. Often, even when they seek legal advice, they aren't given a context in which to interpret this advice. This easy-to-read guide will demystify your publishing options and give you the tools you need to take charge of your author career. "This enjoyable and informative book is essential reading. It will help you decide which publishing model works for you, and will explain how to get the most value out of the writing that you spent so much time and effort on."

Do you want to know the secret to selling more of your self-published books? Would you like to increase the number of retailers selling your books (and your potential earnings) by 200%, 300% or more? Do you know why Amazon's KDP Select program is keeping you from achieving true global distribution of your eBooks? Would you like to know why over 50% of self-published Indie Authors made less than $500 in 2011 while the "Top Earners" of the self-publishing world are making tens of thousands; even millions of dollars per year? Global Marketing expert John Weisenberger wanted to know the answers to these questions too, so he researched, experimented, and researched some more until he discovered what it really takes to successfully market and sell a self-published book. What he found may truly shock you. It may shock you to learn how easily Amazon is duping authors into granting them the exclusive right to distribute their eBooks and no one seems to mind. And speaking of eBooks, it may also shock you to discover just how simple it can be to "go global" with the marketing and sales of your eBooks now that the old world of the big publishing houses is being replaced by a new world of digital content and eReaders. You see the simple solution to selling more self-published books is to make them more visible and "discoverable" around the world which can be accomplished using a global marketing framework called the ezGlobalPublishing™ Roadmap which consists of seven simple steps that will deliver new readers and increased global sales of your books. It doesn't matter if you're writing fictional mysteries, suspense/thrillers, or romance novels, or if you're writing non-fiction business books or how-to guides, the ezGlobalPublishing Roadmap will put your book in more retail outlets and in front of more potential buyers in as little as 90 days using today's global eBook distribution channels.

Self-publishing can be more rewarding than being published - creatively, financially, and in other respects - if you go about it the right way. You could well be confused, as many self-publishers are, by the multiplicity of options available to you. The good news is that you can now make your books visible and available to book buyers around the world at minimal cost. An ebook (PDF) edition of this book was made available worldwide at no cost, an edition for the Kindle, iPad, Nook, Sony eReader and other e-readers made available for GBP95.00, a paperback edition made available worldwide for GBP42.00. As a self-publisher, what are your options for new books? Should you choose an offset lithography print run, a digital print run, or maybe print-on-demand (POD)? Hardback or paperback, or other formats? Possibly an ebook too? And, crucially, how will you get your books distributed cost-effectively to buyers around the world? This book will take you through the options and explain their relative advantages and disadvantages. It provides guidance on selecting book topics with strong sales potential; writing distinctively; obtaining a professional critique of your work; writing content-rich non-fiction; writing in a number of genres; choosing between hardback and paperback and other formats; choosing the optimal printing method; book content formatting; book specifications; colour plate section options; distribution; print-on-demand ('POD'); order fulfilment; dealing with Amazon, Lightning Source, Nielsen, and Bowker; printers; copy-editors and proofreaders; typesetters; cover designers; photographers; pricing and marketing your books; and a whole lot more besides. The book includes a sample chapter from the author's international bestseller Two Men in a Car (a businessman, a chauffeur, and their holidays in France) along with the plate section from the book. Mike Buchanan, a British writer and former business consultant, is the author of eight books since 2008. He's been published internationally by a leading publisher (in English and Chinese editions), and he's self-published. He much prefers self-publishing for a variety of reasons. In January 2010, at the age of 52, he took early retirement and now writes and self-publishes full-time. He developed the model of 'commercial self-publishing' outlined in this book. The model has been designed to help self-publishers enjoy their writing more, increase their output of strong titles, and maximise their profits.

An African Princess was stolen, shipped, sold and thrust into slavery in the land they called "Xaymaca." In shock, she observed this new cruel world. At times, unwilling to believe her present reality, she went through the motions of hard labour and severe abuse with no resistance. However, she was noticed by some of the children on the plantation especially by Marcus. He knew she was the catalyst they needed to bring about a long awaited change. A change his friends, Sam, William, Paul and Peter, all born slaves, hungered for. They had a dream - a dream to be liberated from all who chained them. With this African princess, their dream would finally come true. "Xaymaca Part 1" is the beginning of a short story series of the enslaved Caribbean children named after Jamaican national heroes as they pursue freedom.

Publishers Weekly says "Ramnarayan provides a detailed, contemporary primer that illuminates the promise and peril of the brave new world of social media. Ramnarayan herself acknowledges that social media is no panacea-her crisp presentation, with chapter summaries to highlight the main pointers, confirms that companies that choose not to listen to customers stand to lose ground to competitors who do." WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING ABOUT THE BOOK "Sujata Ramnarayan's excellent book does several things that I have not seen in other treatments of this subject. She takes a reasoned perspective on a topic that is often full of hyperbole. The book is filled with advice for the marketer that is both practical and strategic. It helps the marketer to leverage social media where it can best impact business performance. I highly recommend the book." - Gordon Wyner, Editor-In-Chief, Marketing Management "This practical guide to social media marketing cuts through the noise with clear advice on how to turn strategy into practice. With the help of effective charts and analysis, the reader can gain real insight into social media's influence in corporate marketing. By showing how building quality content in social media is no longer an option for corporations, this is also a lesson in building a brand by listening to your customers. " -Rajesh Subramaniam, SVP, Global Marketing and Customer Experience, FedEx Services "Owned social media presence is critical to generating earned media, which is where the growing value and rewards come in for social media marketing. This important book will help you to understand these concepts and reality to better evaluate, plan, and execute your social media marketing efforts." - Devin Redmond, CEO and Co-Founder, SocialiQ Networks "Are you overwhelmed by the changing digital landscape? If so, Sujata's book is a must read with actionable insights, tips on digital sharing, and more." -Porter Gale, Former VP of Marketing at Virgin America and author of "Your Network is Your Net Worth" ABOUT THE BOOK Like most marketers, you are drowning in social media noise and chaos. Businesses have simply jumped in without tying social media outcomes to any business objectives. The purpose of this book is to help you: - See how social media fits into your overall marketing strategy - Understand how best to develop social media with allocation among different tools - Figure out the extent to which social media is relevant to your business or department, and how best to implement it given an increasingly digital world of sharing and an empowered customer voice Whether you are a senior manager experienced in social media marketing or a novice, this book will help clarify how social media fits into your overall marketing strategy, how much you should be allocating given the return on investment, and at what time frame you should be looking, depending on the specific metrics adopted. This book will help you focus more and understand all the different elements to which you need to be paying attention. If you are a novice, the glossary and additional resources sections at the end of the book should be helpful.
