  • Publishing Process
    • Development of manuscript
      • Research
      • To publish or not?
      • Write the manuscript

    • Prepare the book for printing
      • Cover Design
      • Layout
      • Registration
      • Permission
    • Printing
    • Sales and Marketing
      • Retail and Distribution
      • Promotion
