Format: Paperback
Now available in an updated second edition, Gary Smith's Publishing For Small Press Runs: How To Print And Market From 20 To 200 Copies Of Your Book is a hard, candid, practical look at the serious obstacles to the economic viability of small press publishers. The most profound problem confronting the independent publisher or self-published author, is that small presses lack economy of scale, i.e. they are publishing fewer numbers of their book(s) for with a higher per unit cost. Informative and insightful chapters specifically address how to make the best of small press economic realities and still turn a healthy profit by carefully controlling costs. Publishing For Small Press Runs is an absolute "must" for self-publishers or executives of small presses who seek to profit from tens to hundreds of books, rather than the more traditional tens of thousands of copies traditionally produced by the large corporate publishing houses.

Format: Paperback
This book is an essential edition to the small publisher's library. Smith teaches self-publishing at the University of New Orleans and practices what he preaches. This book is best read before embarking on a small publishing project, then referred to as specific issues come up, such as dealing with postal authorities or manuscript prep for electronic publication. Highly recommended.
