All About Book Publishing

You might ask: “How Do I Write a Book and Get It Published?” There are several different types of book publishing companies today but all work to produce an end product such as a book, manual, newspaper or textbook.  There are traditional publishers, Subsidy or Vanity Publishers, Independent and Self publishing Companies. With KG Books Publishing we work with the author to develop a polished book and then deliver it to the public.  After writing your book, consider what type of publisher will help you most.

Publishing is the process of producing printed books, music and information through distribution channels.  It involves a process of development, production and distribution.  Each stage of publishing goes through different actions and events to produce material for market.

The process of development might include copy editing a book, proofreading, formating, text blocking, illustrations, cover art and presentation.

Production might include obtaining copyrights, typsetting, page layout, proofing, price setting and finallly printing.  Printing alone involves binding, dust jacket composition, creating negatives, plates and book production.

Distribution might include marketing, assigning an ISBN number and supplying goods to bookstores, printing companies, and online retailers.

Publishing is a process that takes time, effort, energy and patience until a finished product appears on the market. I hope this helps your understanding of the Book Publishing process and that it is a timely and detail oriented business, but the end product is well worth the wait.
