Do you have an idea for a book but need some direction? Not sure of what materials and techniques to specify to the printer? Are you wondering what others in your genre are doing?
You’ll need to do some research if you haven’t already. One of the first things to do is clearly define your audience and purpose. Who will buy the book, and for what reason? Or is your book being given away? Will you sell direct to readers or through bookstores and other channels? What are other books in your potential category doing?
As a book printer, Marathon can assist you in the tangible decisions required to help you define your audience and purpose for self publishing a book. Many of the genres we produce will utilize associated techniques and materials.
