3 Avenues To Publishing
Trade or Traditional Publishers
Traditional publishing refers to the established system of getting a book deal, which involves submission to agents over a period of time, usually a number of rejections and then (hopefully) being accepted. Then the agent will submit the manuscript to publishers with usually a number of rejections and then (hopefully)
a contract is signed. The book will then go through more edits and will eventually be published.
Vanity, Self and Contract Publishers
Vanity and contract presses print books under specialty contracts. Individual authors and companies pay all fees and costs for the publications printed in this category. These publishers assist in self-published books and charge fees based on the physical qualities of the book, including the number of pages and photographs, quality of the materials and the type of binding. The term vanity refers to the self-interest involved in the printing
project. Small businesses interested in publishing firm histories, founder biographies and texts focusing on company products use this category of publishing press.
Electronic book publishing offers readers the opportunity to download text online or purchase digital books from retail stores. Only 6.2 percent of this total involved ebooks, but industry officials predict increased sales for digital books with huge increases for textbooks and best-selling trade books. Ebooks offer an inexpensive alternative for business-oriented publications and small printers interested in partnerships with large publishers
operating networks to promote the ebooks.
