Ever wanted to be a publisher, but don’t know where to start? Since the advent of digital print-on-demand book printing, it’s easier than ever. All you need to do if find the next great American novel and send it off to the printer. But is it quite that simple?
Well, if it’s not, The Book Industry Study Group (BISG), the major US trade association for book publishing, wants to help you. The organization has just published Digital Book Printing for Dummies, a new entry in Wiley’s “For Dummies” series. The book will guide you through the wilds of digital printing, including the ups and downs of digital, and how to pick a printer.
