E-Publishing Rapidly Changing Conventional Book Publishing Business
Publishing Back In History
History has it on record that Johannes Gutenberg published one hundred and eighty Bibles on paper and vellum some five and a half centuries ago. That must have been a great achievement at that time. We were privileged to have printing presses all over there after; which made it possible for a large number of books to be printed and made available to readers, hence allowing more people to have access to education. Today’s book publishing business has changed with the advancement we have in business technology. Printing press has been the avenue through which book writers have been enabled to make their merchandise available to the end users, the readers, for a long time now, but that seems to be changing now with the new technology we have on our hands.
Processes Of Book Publishing
Before the latest innovations available now became evident, anyone interested in writing a book will have to go to book publishers and get their books printed. The next step to take then will be to find a means through which the book can get to the target audience; because it is when the book is read that the author or publisher can communicate to his audience and make any profit on his investment. The quest to get the book to readers is an onerous one that the author or publisher will have to get done in order to have a record of achievement of his goals. This stage in the process can take the author or publisher to look out for readers in schools or other public places or possibly look for a marketer to do this for him. He will be incurring another round of expenses on this.
In today’s world, all these stages can be reduced into just two- writing the book and getting it to the reader through a platform. The new technology available today is relatively going to be of tremendous help to book publishers and readers alike.
Anyone that has information to pass across in the form of book can now make use of the internet platform to do so without ever going to press. The bulk of the job will be to do the write-up. Once the write-up is satisfactory, he can choose to go by any of the available options on the internet to get the book published and made available for anyone interested in that topic. Such a person can choose to have a website built for the purpose or submit the book on some websites that are out there for such purposes.
Ebook reader is the new technological invention that is encouraging people to read nowadays. Physical books are now available electronically for anyone one interested in the subject. You will just need to get your book available on the platforms that support this device to make your book get to the prospective reader.
Book publishers can even get feedback on their books immediately a reader finish reading it, thus improving the quality of books we have available.
