Print on Demand Books
Print on Demand is a modern way to publish physical books, which does not require a huge outlay in purchasing copies, but which places your book for sale online at chosen platforms, as well as upon your own website if you choose. As with ebooks, you pay only the percentage that the sales platform takes from each sale you make, and receive the rest of the sales taking in royalties.
Of course, you are perfectly welcome to buy your own copies as you want them, but instead of having to place a minimum order with a printer, you can buy two now, five later, a dozen for a book fayre, and so on. In addition, depending on the platform you use, and the method you choose for buying these, you can either get a discount on purchasing your own book, or your own purchase can generate royalties for you.
The format for a print on demand book needs to be different from that for an ebook. Grey Wolf will edit any documents as required, and as for ebook creation Grey Wolf offers a limited typing service for hand-written manuscripts of a short length.
Grey Wolf web design and admin services will oversee such vital features as left-and-right orientation, which matters greatly in a print book but is absent in ebooks. Grey Wolf will insert necessary blank pages into the book, and will oversee page and chapter breaks to prevent orphaned words or lines appearing upon pages.
As with an ebook, your cover is a vital part of your sales armoury and it all revolves around the image you choose to use. The cover can be created offline and uploaded whole, or a cover creation program can be used at the sales platform to create the cover online. Either way, a striking and unique image is vital.
Grey Wolf will set you up with accounts at major platforms and distributors. Create Space is Amazon's print-on-demand subsidiary, whilst Lulu and Blurb are well-known established brands that create quality products. Which one, or more than one, is right for you will depend on the nature of your book.
As with ebooks, Grey Wolf's print-on-demand service starts at a very reasonable £40
