MANUSCRIPT

Every book starts as an idea put on paper. The paper that contains the idea is called the manuscript. In this session, we will share with you how to take your ideas, and turn them into a manuscript that is ready for a publisher's eye.


Most books are written by the authors. Some books are written by other persons. A person who writes another person's book is called a "ghost writer". To write books does not require one to be a professional typist or grammarian.  These skills are beneficial and have the potential of saving an author some cost in the production of the manuscript to book form.


When writing a book for the first time, the library is a good resource for reviewing the various book styles that may be suitable for the topic that you have chosen.

For example, if you are interested in writing a novel, autobiography or Bible study, look at the specific layout in these areas and use them as a guideline. You will find that the standard layout will consist of an acknowledgement, a foreword, a table of contents, and an introduction. Being knowledgeable of manuscript styles and layouts can save you time and money.


Self-Published Profit Guide:


Often, a self-published author asks about a cost in relation to a royalty. A book's royalty is determined by its distribution method. Royalty is the amount of funds that the author receives from the sell of a book after production and marketing costs. The production cost can include typing, editing, book cover design, bar code, formatting, the ISBN, and printing. A marketing cost includes promotion and distribution costs. Distribution is the method of putting the book into the reader’s hand. Each distribution's method has a cost that affects the royalty, which is the different between the retail cost of the book and the amount an author receives.
