Book Manufacturing Concepts
///////////////////////////////

With the decline of the printed word, there is less demand - world wide - for paper. Because of this, less paper is being made. In fact, long-time manufacturers are getting out of the business. Paper prices are expected to rise sharply in 2018. This should be factored into any publication plan.

Marketing advice
///////////////////////////////

Never assume anyone or anything (web “robot”, interest group, non-profit, etc.) will do anything for you – always ask. This includes asking people share your information, please post, and seeking out search engine (and other) submission opportunities for your web presence, etc.
