Research Your Book Market
Before writing any book you should research the market to assess
the demand, and to help define the scope of your book.
If you cannot expect to sell at least 1,000 books a year, look
at publishing on demand
or self publishing
If you anticipate you can sell over this volume, then you must
be able to convince a publisher that you can, and if successful,
negotiate a print publishing contract.
Most ebooks do not use a publisher / distributor, unless the ebook
version is offered as an alternative in addition to the print versions.
You may be able to negotiate a deal where you get the right to sell
electronic versions exclusively…anything is possible.
Your market research will help you establish a ‘business
case’ for your application proposal, as well as provide a
foundation upon which you can develop a marketing strategy.
