Antellus Publishes Book on DIY Publishing
The private independent publisher has just released a new book on do-it-yourself publishing based on a previous book.
Author: Theresa M. Moore
Principles of Publishing In The Digital Age is a comprehensive guide to publishing for the beginner, with a history of books and printing processes from the beginning of writing to modern times. Author Theresa M. Moore intended this edition to be as complete as possible in the face of constant changes in the field of digital publishing and has based the contents on her experience as a writer and publisher, and the associated successes and pitfalls of publishing both fiction and nonfiction books. The book is an upgrade from the original edition on self-publishing published in 2008. Contents include manuscript preparation to finished product, as well as information about copyrights, content control, accounting for sales an operations, and philosophical applications. The book can be purchased on the Antellus website and other booksellers.
"There are so many writers and authors out there who want to learn how to publish on their own," Antellus CEO and author Theresa M. Moore said. "I wrote this manual to educate them, and to point out some of the barriers they may encounter along the way. Since I am still learning myself each time I publish a book, I want to pass on what I learned so they may not make the same mistakes or encounter the same problems I did. Everyone has been complaining about the sheer volume of books which have been written and published without regard to simple techniques like editing and composition. I say that anyone can learn how to write a better book using the principles I discuss, and it's easy. It just takes a little dedication to the core values of publishing and the desire to gain more readers of one's work."
Moore has a degree in Accounting and has been writing for about 30 years. She published her first novel in 2006 after abandoning the tradition of presenting a manuscript to an agent. Since then, she has published 14 other books, 2 of which have gone out of print; and is working on 2 more. Another 6 have been scheduled for some time in the near future. Actual dates vary according to the pace of her schedule.
