Bob Baker's Book Promotion Blog

Book Publishing Basics: Copyright, ISBN, Printing

As you know, this blog is all about helping you work toward making a living (and hopefully making a difference) with your own book. So I write a lot about promotion and sales and semi-advanced publishing topics.

But I realize a lot of folks who stumble upon this blog may be just starting on their publishing journey. If you're one of them, I bet you could use some helpful resources on publishing basics.

Here are four web sites I recommend:

Registering a Copyright
Everything you need to know from the U.S. Copyright Office.

Applying for ISBNs
How to get your own set of International Standard Book Numbers.

Getting Your Book Printed
A nice primer from Dan Poynter.

Planning for Self-Publishing Success
A great overview of the do-it-yourself book publishing process.

Bonus suggestion:

Book Publishing Secrets to Success
A peek into my own path to full-time author status.

To your success!
