This excerpt is from “Success, Your Path to a Successful Book,” by Maralyn D. Hill and Brenda C. Hill

It seems that the changes in the publishing industry are happening as quickly as your new computer is outdated. We will attempt to cover some of the basics, but like anything else, we suggest that you research your particular area of interest.

What are your goals in publishing your book?
In our case, with our first joint effort, Our Love Affairs with Food & Travel, chefs were anxiously awaiting the publication of their recipes. It was a big factor in our decision to use Print-On-Demand Publishing (POD) and be able to turn it around within four months.

What is the best timing for your subject?
For example, if you are writing your memoirs for a family holiday gift in the summer, POD or self publishing your book will have it ready before the winter holidays.
