How to publish book?


Recommended Posts

So I wrote a new post here but after two to three days works it was 21K words.

 

I figured screw it just make this a book.

 

I've looked at Amazon, IBAN, Swift? What's that? I just get a card to my address with a sort code and bank number and that's it but I'm shut out of my bank otherwise. They keep changing my passwords and things so I have no access. I can't afford to fly to India to find that stuff out.

 

ImgramSpark is just a scam to get your bank details, you can't actually publish with it.

 

Lulu is for some weird stuff. Grosnover is a huge price without explaining anything and what about online it doesn't make sense.

 

What's the best way to publish commercially?

Holy cow there's a secret agency filtering all publications...

 

"An ISBN (International Standard Book Number), also known as EAN (European Article Number), is a unique thirteen-digit item code provided by your country's ISBN agency and assigned by publishers to identify the format and edition of a particular title, required by retailers and distributors for sales and inventory purposes. An ebook will have a different ISBN or EAN than the print version of the same book. Read more about ISBNs."

 

Blocking anyone from just publishing!

Going off my experience working as a freelance editor, with a client base that mostly self-publishes through Amazon, my advice would be to get in touch with a designer who is capable of offering a comprehensive package, covering everything from typesetting to ISBN no. (they're pretty cheap to buy) and uploading.

 

I have a UK-based contact who I'd be happy to recommend, so please feel free to PM me if you'd like me to pass on his details.

The trick of the adventure playground or the great maze is the prize in the middle, which is actually unreachable, at least not without paying your dues otherwise you keep coming back for more. There's a way in and out but never to the centre. They also make it so that to win great prizes you have to go through them first and they get a commission. When it comes to their paygrade, I'll make them pay! I'll keep them coming back for more whether they like it or not! British people rise up!

They find something of value and build a maze around it well I'll raze them to the ground and take a big fat dump in their capitalist gone wrong faces for feeding the other evil beast and justifying the existence of communism! I defecate in their exact and specific direction of their gawping maws! I'll precision fart up their noses! I'm not a Frenchman! We can shoot straight you impudent insolent impotent swine!

So I'm like I want to publish this with a payment barrier and then they're like no you have to go through us first one after the other after the other until I've paid ten people and I look at this and who actually provided a service? One in ten. The rest of you were just self appointed taxmen. I want people to only have to pay once for my book, not through the nose, not ten other uninvolved people in this production. Taxmen to the left of me taxmen to the right of me their taxes are so high I can't even afford to pay their taxes that I need to be able to pay the taxes. This is very taxing. Surcharges, tolls, these are the real trolls. It's time to turn around and to say nay you shall not pass, unless ye pass away!

Oh we're sorry you over paid taxes! From now on I'm paying nothing. White suicide charge! See how well you can achieve your "green" agenda saying things then looking at the crowd to see if it boos and cheers when you paid them to do so on cue when white geniuses with autism and the impossible transhuman skills you desperately need because humans got us into this in the first place are now killing themselves in droves.

 

Idiots idiots idiots tried to be social opened the doors but were just more social shut out the genius autistic engineers and scream on about green on and getting it on, you lost. The way you treated us and now you want us to serve the rest of humanity? You're all going to die. Good riddance you pox upon existence.

 

As a fellow autistic, to all engineers and autistics, do not give them to technology to survive. Let climate change come to be and the planet die. There are many more out there, one of them will have gotten it right. It's not us though, let the planet die, accept its DNR. Stop prolonging the suffering, the inevitable. It got close but in the end we were never meant to be.

Kyle and Greta lets arrange the marriage while we're at it two politically abused and raped to shreds children! One made to be the villain when the hero and one made to be the hero when the villain by their abusive elders. A match made in heaven! Autism rules. We're rising up and taking over again. Screw the socialite, the socialist and all others who have to over come over to compensate for not over coming themselves! "Can I comer over?" No you socialite piece of dickwad cuntbleed.

I did that for my book (published in ten weeks time) - cost £840.

IBAN and Swift are 'international' versions of your bank account number and sort code. You can usually find them on your bank statement.

 

You don't need to fly to India to find this stuff out, just contact your bank. Or set up a new account with another bank that you can receive your payments from Amazon to.
