Two more days until It's Raining in Moscow and I Forgot my Umbrella is published!
What is an ISBN and why would I need one, let alone two?
Every book has an ISBN (International Standard Book Number) and they’re not cheap! They’re not very interesting either so just a few facts:
·You can get them free on Amazon KDP, but that’s if you don’t want to sell your book anywhere other than Amazon.
· In the UK you have to buy your ISBNs from a company called Nielsen.
· One ISBN costs £89!
· A bargain pack of 10 costs a mere £164.
· You have to have a different ISBN for each book you publish, and an eBook needs a different ISBN from the same book in paperback.
The reason I needed 2 ISBNs was that I made the mistake of having my book printed on white paper. I had to go through the whole process again to get it published with cream pages!
There – I told you it was boring! 😊
It’s Raining in Moscow and I Forgot my Umbrella will be released on Amazon on
16th November (now released!)
