Format: Paperback
Dr. Silverman draws upon his many years of experience and expertise as a textbook author, college professor, and successful self-publisher in Self-Publishing Textbooks And Instructional Materials. While the emphasis in on academic and/or scholarly publishing, this practical instructional guide would prove invaluable reading for those engaged in writing, editing, or self-publishing for commercial or trade titles in any other field as well. From assessing a title for possible self-publication, to fundamentals of print and electronic publishing; to copyrighting and registering self-published books; to financial considerations; to marketing, and distribution, Self-Publishing Textbooks And Instructional Materials is quite literally a complete instructional workshop seminar under a single cover. If you are considering self-publishing for the education market (including classroom instructors and curriculum developers), then you urgently need to acquire a copy of Dr. Silverman's Self-Publishing Textbooks And Instructional Materials and give it a very careful reading from cover to cover.
