The key difference between self-publishing and a traditional publisher is that the self-publisher does all of the work that a typical publishing house would perform. Self-publishing has seen dramatic growth over the last five years. According to Bowker, from 2008 to 2013 there was 292% growth rate of self- publishers that applied for an ISBN. This statistic does not include ebooks, or books that were printed without an ISBN.
The self-publishing process can seem overwhelming to aspiring authors. That is why we offer information to help authors avoid the pitfalls of book publishing. We will educate you about vanity presses, contracts, royalties, ISBN numbers, copyright, book design, editing, selling, and the different book genres we have printed.
A good book must be planned out, and starts with choosing the right company to help with the process. We are the go to online resource for the do-it-yourselfer that wants to learn about the self-publishing process. We have been helping authors for over ten years, and take great pride in making dreams of publishing a reality.
At DiggyPOD, we never charge a royalty, nor do we require you to sign a publishing contract. We believe that each author should reap all the awards and profits of their work. After all, it's the self-publishers hard work, ideas, and written words, not ours. DiggyPOD will keep in constant contact with you using email and phone support, so you know exactly what is going on with your book order. If you are ready or just pricing it out, save a quote to start your goal with us.
When it comes to getting your book printed, you want to make sure you pick a printing company that specializes in helping self-publishers. The success of how your book looks and sells, often depends on the expertise of the company you choose.
Our book printing section will teach you about the terms that are used in the book printing industry and what they mean. We want authors to have a good understanding of book printing companies, POD-Print on Demand, cover options, paper choices, trim sizes, binding styles, digital printing differences, and see first-hand how the book printing process works.
Choose a book printing company that you can speak with on the phone, and is located in the USA. Make sure the company that you choose actually prints the books themselves in-house. Don't use a company that outsources the printing processes to a third party, or uses aggressive upselling tactics. You can easily review the quality of the book and the book printing company from their ratings first.
Books are judged by their cover, and printing companies are judged by their printing quality. Make sure you to get an actual printed book sample from the book printer you choose. At DiggyPOD, we take great pride in producing top quality perfect bound books for self-publishers. Want to see and feel our quality product? Request a free sample book today.
