Publishing a book……how to start.
Hello. Im writing a teen novel and should be done soon (hopefully). I have never published before and i am only 16. I know most people dont become writers and get to be known like Sarah Dessen or Stephenie Meyer, but i know i have something to show the world. Maybe say im quite a good writer since i write many…
I still usually suggest Lulu.com to people of a younger age looking to get a book out there (like me). I’d be delighted to help with the editing process if you like ([email protected]).Agents are really great if you serious about getting a profit or such from your book, but it seems more like you have something you want to share. Lulu is probably one of the most popular publishing sites (if not the most) and you can also get printed copies from them to sell if you want, or to just give out.As for tips… not really. After you’ve got your work finished and gotten some people to look at it and finished the editing, you just upload it to one of these sites. People go through and read the books because they’re free and oftentimes excellent. They’ll give you feedback and if you’re book gets popular you can actually get a lot of veiwership. Some people have used this popularity to do books later (often sequels) for some profit. These people who do well like this aren’t really aiming for the profit so much as just doing something they love to do though, so make sure it’s still about that (so cliche… sorry).I’ve read through the other answers here and it just doesn’t seem like you’re looking for getting an agent and all of that. Again, that’s if you’re looking for a profit. Some people do very well with making a profit on books when they’re young, look at Paolini. If you’re looking for a publisher, look in the acknowledgements of a book similar to yours and find the agent. It’s really pretty simple, but actually doing it is probably a bit of a hassle. Really, you don’t lose money with an agent. Agents and publishers generally only ask for cuts, taking the gamble that your book will sell. This is why I suggest going to some site like Lulu and publishing something there first. Distribute the book online some and get reviews and then see if you can get some popularity on Lulu. Then the publishers are more likely to give you a chance. It’s pretty rare for a book by young people like us to sell really well though.
How to Publish a book.
Our son wrote a story that we thought was cute. He said he’d like to publish it for out family and friends. He just turned seven and was six at the time he wrote it so we wanted to publish it with the way it is with all the words that are not spelled correctly and all kind of like for a keep sake every place I…
Hi. Your son is extremely talented at a young age. It is actually a good start if he gets to have something published and distributed to the market this early. I would suggest that you scout for self-publishing companies that provide services that will cater to your son’s book’s requirement. A picture book with illustrations and text is ideal for the type of book he will submit and I know that Xlibris does top quality picture books.Your son’s book will be published, protected and distributed globally for everyone’s buying perusal. The good thing about self-publishing companies is that they are Print On Demand and your son’s book will be listed under a database for a lifetime.At such a young age, his career will be geared into writing, publishing, book signings and who knows. Good luck to him and your family 🙂
How many ways are there to distribute the books if the books are all different and there is no restriction on the number…..
There’s 5 different books and 20 kids• How many ways are there to distribute the books if the books are all different and there is no restriction on the number of books that can be given to any kid.
Book 1 can go to any of 20 kids, then for each allocation book 2 can go to 20 kids etc.distributions = 20^5 = 2^5×10^5 = 3 200 000 <----
How to distribute this.
1st: Q = 10(L,K) ^0.5The book says: that the partial derivitve equals:5 K/L with respect to L and 5 L/K with respect to K.But how do they come up with 5?
Probably the question is to find partial derivatives of the expression:Q = 10*(L*K)^0.5 = 10*sqrt(L*K)In this case dQ/dL = 5*sqrt(K/L) and dQ/dK = 5*sqrt(L/K), where sqrt(x) = x^0.5 is square root of x.
I am writing a free eBook on the topic of Earn money online but i don’t know how to distribute it.

Find an E Book distributing site. like http://www.lulu.com/publish/index.php?cid=en_tab_publishAnd you are done.Then you have to get someone to give it away,do you have any friends that blogs, or have a website? Ask them if they could put the link to the E book there,then if it’s popular, more people will get it.
how to distribute salary .
There are 14 men with the minimum salary of any of them being 8k, average salary 10 k and maximum salary 14k .The number of people who have the salary of at least 12k is AT MOST how many ?Answer given in my book is 6 .how ?please explain your solution.
Since there is already a cap, one person has a salary of 14.To maximize the number of people, put the ‘big’ salary at 12 and the low salary at 8.The average is 10, thus the total is 140.140 – 14 = 126.We need to solve the number of people ,x, with big salaries…12x + 8(13-x) ≤ 140 – 144x + 104 ≤ 1264x ≤ 22 … thus the maximum number for x is 5.There can be at most 5 people with salary of 12k and one with salary of 14k.Thus there are 6 people.§
What’s the best way to distribute an independent comic book.
Color cover, 32 black & white interior pages. Initial press run of 5000 copies. Professional-grade art and stories by a group of four middle-aged guys who decided to collaborate on an old-school horror comic ala “Creepy” or “Eerie”.
The best way to distribute your book is to figure out what your comic’s target niche is and start marketing to that group. Going through Diamond really won’t net you many sales without a “name” attached to the book – average for an indy book through Diamond is under 250 copies these days, and most comic shops aren’t interested in small press books.Since your book is horror, I’d target horror conventions, try to get coverage in horror magazine (also run some ads in the mags with a tracking code so you know how successful each ad is), try contact shops that cater to the heavy metal type crowd. There are a ton of alternative distribution channels for a book like yours.Check the link below for a ton of articles on marketing indy comics outside of regular comic book channels.

how to publish and distribute a children’s book.
my sister wrote a story for a childrens book. How do we edit, publish and distribute the book?
Edit–start off by asking an english teacher to help you edit it. Then look up the addresses for several publishing companies such as dover or scholastic (ones that print children’s books) and send them copies of the typed manuscript. Distribution of the book may lie with the publisher, if not, take copies of the published book to local book stores and ask if they would like to sell it.
