Your Book Monopoly Review Part One focuses on a physical book. Most of us have published at least one Kindle book, or want to in the near future. From personal experience, I can tell you that is a perfect start, but it will not make you rich any time soon. If you are like me and have been on the fence about turning your Kindle eBook into a physical book, now is the time! There will be no excuses after going through this course.
Rachel gives you a couple of resources for doing just that and one of them includes a resource for the must-have ISBN number(s) you will need – at a discounted price.
She points out the importance of using each of the resources gives you and the pros and cons of each. One I am familiar with and the other one I have not used. I can’t wait to learn more about it later in the course. It will be exciting to expand my horizons in the publishing world. FYI: my hard dive is full of publishing courses and not one of them have mentioned the second resource much less what it can do for you (covered later in the course.)
Remember, you are not simply publishing a book to Kindle in this course. You will have to think big! You are creating a book monopoly and that means being seen everywhere by as many people and buyers as possible.
There is a definite publishing order in which to set up your book monopoly. Put one step of the process out of order and you will most likely lose the game (sorry, I couldn’t resist.) To be on the safe side, I made a cheat sheet of the publishing system, so I could easily repeat it with zero stress later on.
One resource has an application review process. Depending on the new account volume at the time of your submission, they will notify you via email in two or more business days regarding the status of your application. Rachel also points out that there is a $37.50 setup fee for this resource.
UPDATE: I submitted my application on Saturday, May 25th. and received my acceptance and membership information on Tuesday, May 28th. Not bad for a holiday weekend.
Think ahead and be sure to follow the resource links provided to sign up for each resource – well in advance of your book publication date. Waiting until the last minute could throw your schedule off by a week or more.
Another unique twist to this program is that Rachel ends this section with a list of what you will have accomplished.
Now it is on to section two. Wow, this monopoly game is moving fast.
