For book/ebook authors, publishers, & self-publishers
It's been 3 years since I published my last book and I see a lot has changed. Just really need some good advice on whether to buy Bowker's ISBN numbers or use Lulu's ISBN for my print book. I see that each ISBN on Bowkers is $125 a piece and an extra $25 for the barcode? Am I reading that correctly? Shouldn't the barcode come with that price? Lulu charges $19 but when reading the fine print, Lulu gets royalties off that book for the life of the book and with Bowker's I'm understanding that you own it totally? I'm also publishing in ebook form and Bookbaby is still the best? I'm not sure how to convert my book into epub and they've done a great job on the other two!
Thanks for anything you can give me!
