I have a question about ISBNs. Exciting, right? Okay, so maybe not, at least not to anyone who is not a writer and publishing their own books, but these are the kinds of things that can keep me up at night. I’m just about to send my next book off for formatting, and then I’m thinking I’ll go with Createspace this time instead of Bookbaby because their prices on print books are so much better. I thought I would get an assigned ISBN like I did with Bookbaby, but then they threw in that I could buy my own ISBN and be my own publisher. In essence, Createspace would then be only my distributor. This seems like a good idea unless I then have to have a business license for my publishing company. It all gets so confusing.
The good thing about this is that I will be able to buy print copies of the books (I plan on having soft cover print books made up of “Searching for My Wand” as well) and I think I’ll be able to sell directly from this blog, unless of course that opens up another can of worms. Are there rules about that as well? If any of you fabulous readers have insight into any of this, your input would be greatly appreciated.
