31 Jan How to Start a Book Publishing Business
How to start a book publishing company
If you want to self-publish a book in 2020, I recommend to go PRO and start a publishing company.
Here are my reasons why:
1. You are legal protected.
You’re protected because if you form a limited liability company, the company is liable instead of you personally. You can simply form an LLC – Limited Liability Company, open a corporate bank account, apply for EIN and you’re good to go. Visit my law firm to learn more.
2. Your book will look more legit.
If you are self-publishing under your name it doesn’t look as professional as publishing under a publisher. Publishing company adds value and credibility, especially if people don’t even know about publishing process and they pick up your book and see that it was published by a company. They will take you more seriously.
3. Use Print on Demand Service POD
Be smart. Use POD service such as IngramSpark. Make sure to sign a contract under company name and distribute the book internationally via IngramSpark. You can also use Amazon in addition to that, however, don’t just rely on Amazon. Therefore, POD service is a way to go in 2020.
4. Register Your Copyrights and ISBN
I recommend to buy ISBN’s at www.bowker.com and definitely register your copyrights.
5. Register with Library Congress and Get the Identifiers
