Another Industry disrupted by a Startup theory.
I remember until many days, it was very difficult for
anyone to publish a book, even if you think that it was good
a) it was controlled by many publishing companies, that who should be printed, how many much they must be paid
favourism, monopoly existed until this “Startup” theory has come to the picture.
Now anyone can print, if they think, they book is worth publishing,
- you can print 1 book
- you can print 10 books
- you can print on demand
called as “VANITY printing”
they are also companies like www.Pothi.com
- publish e-books
pothi lets everyone to publish a book “if they wish to”
i liked this revolutionary way to handle things….. i wanted to publish a book from so long.. and now i can do so……..the world is changing for good man…………………. best of luck world
ok i am getting emotional, by the way how you get published at pothi.com
- you submit your manuscript to them
- once your get confirmation
- choose your package
- work with them closely (you will know many things likes edition, rewriting, pagesetup, front cover design (get a UX designer)
- market it like the great mind of (the book author Immortals of meluha, the secrets of nagas writer ) Amish Tripathi who lead his way to market his product in a unique way http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GP8Qzv2r3iI and he broadcasted his trailor in Movies during intervals, along with web selling at http://www.flipkart.com/the-immortals-of-meluha/p/itmdyuryk5wmksnv
if you desire from the bottom of your heart, you can get it done, now with the “Start up” thing around, you can get it done better………..
