Tips for choosing a free lance editor for your book

Writing a book may be considered a very prestigious moment for anybody. Writing requires a skill that isn't necessarily easy to achieve and accomplish. However, even the best writers make mistakes, and they too require someone to look over their shoulder to make corrections when needed. Hiring a freelance editor is a great way to get one's writing checked over for any mistakes that may have been made in the work. When deciding to hire a freelance editor, it is imperative to ensure that they are well versed in grammar, spelling, punctuation, and sentence structuring. Also, a collection of their work and credentials would be a sure way of being guaranteed that the editor is skilled, knowledgeable, and trustworthy.

How do I apply for an ITIN if I am publishing to Kindle and I'm in another country?

In order to get an ITIN you must visit the IRS website. After doing so you can either download a blank W-7 Form or choose an IRS-verified ITIN acceptance agent. Doing either of these will entail you to provide proof of identify which involves a recent photo copy of yourself, proof age and residence. Proof of identity can be either your license, pass port with birth certificate or voter’s registration card birth certificate.

If choose to download, print and mail the W-7 form please make sure you send a copy of your proof of identification. If you decided to go with IRS-verified ITIN acceptance agent make sure you have access to a scanner so you can upload and email or fax your proof of identify online.

Is An ISBN important when self-publishing?

After the work has been done of writing the book which includes all editing and assorted indexes, then the author is ready to take the final steps to self-publishing the manuscript. There are many companies that will do this for a fee or some for simply the cost of one book, whether it be paperback or hardback. The book must have an IBSN to be registered for the markets, which vary in context. The IBSN number identifies the book individually. The number gives all prospective buyers the necessary information to purchase that individual book. Many self-publishing companies will either charge a small fee or provide an IBSN for free.

How do I get my book copyrighted?

Placing a copyright on any literary work has its advantages. One such advantage is that the writer is able to distribute and sell their own work. In order to place a copyright on an unpublished book there is not a whole lot required in getting this done.

The most important step is registering the unpublished book with the United States Copyright Office, this can be done online. While this should be immediately done to avoid proving issues one specific way to notify others that the book has copyright protection is through the copyright notice printed on the inside of the book.

Is Printing On Demand Better Than A Print Run?

Printing On Demand is far better than a print run because it is environmental friendly and does not waste unnecessary resources. Today most new print is offered electronically as well. Since the electronic market is ever growing, it is becoming increasingly hard to predict how many books to copy on a print run. Rather than over print it is better to print on demand. Don’t worry about the risk of under printing because print machines are increasingly efficient and capable of meeting the demands of someone’s order in a fast manner. Printing on demand is better for the company, better for the author, and better for the environment.

Bad Reviews? Five Ways To Handle It
Here is a list of FIVE THINGS to protect you from the sting of rejection
1) Publicity is generated by any review, good or bad.
2) A list of your fear - You are launching something creative. That's scary, period, so take pride for having the courage to do it! So make a bullet-pointed list of all possible bad reviews that make your skin crawl. Reference that list often to remind you that while bad reviews may be inevitable, they aren't deadly nor will they stop you from writing!
3) List TWO - ditch the trash-talk. So many reviews simply do not matter. Identify the irrelevant and put those on a separate list. When you see those reviews come up, you'll be prepared. You can then dismiss them and move on.
4) Dwell in the positive!
List THREE -- This is your Magic Words list. Jot down words that are encouraging like "imaginative" or "witty" or "hilarious" or "suspenseful" or "authentic." You set out to be these things, right? What words best describe your intent? Let your focus rest on those words.
5) Remember this if nothing else: Your book was worthy…someone stopped long enough to write a review. That's great!
