| Wednesday, September 18, 2013 | |

If you are a start-up writer, or maybe a renowned one, institute or any organization. You always have something to publish and/or sell/distribute in the market. But going through the processes of offset printing is quite tiresome and requires a good deal of money to start.

Publish Books Online works on POD or Print-on-Demand infrastructure. In this type, of infrastructure you have the ability to get your content printed only when required and in exact quantity required. This service uses latest technologies like digital printing, and the result is a bit costly as compared to traditional, offset printing works. But the quality is the best. That is, you are not required to invest anything out of your budget.

Who can use this service?

  1. Individuals- Get your book published for public/private circulation.
  2. Publishers- Do short-run reprinting or publish books with niche audience.
  3. Coaching/Training Institutes- Supplementary books and notes.
  4. NGOs/Other Organization supports a DIY (Do IT Yourself) model. You can submit your book's content using Microsoft Word or any other Word Processor. But the problem again is, you need people to format your content properly and create Cover Page. Generally, these works are done by professionals and it all adds to the cost of the book. Other way out is to do it yourself using Desktop Publishing software. But they may still prove to be quite confusing and waist of time especially for authors whose priority is to remain creative and productive.

Do it yourself or DIY provides their own tool for creating cover pages seamlessly. You can also select from pre-designed templates.  Or you can get it done by some one else too. Furthermore, you can create and publish your own e-books in PDF as well as EPUB format.
