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.
