Already have a publisher? When your service order is complete you will be sent the digital files
required for printing a book using any popular POD (Print On Demand) Service.
Want your own label?
We can also show you how to save money by establishing your own “Publisher’s Account”
at Lightning Source, a leading POD publishing service. We can then submit your digital files directly to them in the correct formats and set up your title library. All you have to do is log on to your account, and
order. They will usually send you one complete, finished book with the title setup order. This gives you a last chance to look at your work ‘between the dignity of two covers’ and see if there are any
last minute changes required.
The Writing Shop will make any final revisions and resubmit the digital files for you. When you are
satisfied, you can then place your first book order! The minimum order is 25 books, and there is no maximum. You can even set the price you want to charge for wholesale and retail book orders. Lightning Source will
prepare your bar code to print on the back book cover. The only thing you need to provide is the ISBN number of your book, and we can show you how to obtain that.
Now that you are published, with books in hand, the real work starts. Learning how to market and promote
your book is the hardest part of the process, but Lightning Source will get you set up in the Ingram book distribution database, and in popular on-line book sites like Amazon.com.
The quality of your book, and the effort you put into marketing, will determine whether or not you get
rich and famous! There are very few writers who can actually make a living at their craft, but who knows...the next big success story could be yours!
But How Do You Get There from here?
