Excerpt
Script Hello and welcome to Project Gutenberg’s Self-Publishing Press, a place where authors and readers can meet. Today we’re going to show you how to add your publications to the Project Gutenberg’s Self Publishing Portal; Project Gutenberg’s Self-Publishing Press is a public service. There is never a cost for using these services. Now lets discover how to become a published author at Project Gutenberg Self-Publishing Press. When you publish your book at the Project Gutenberg Self-Publishing Press, it is distributed throughout our Cloud Library network, where your book becomes instantly accessible to the World. With over 2 trillion web-enabled, mobile devices in the World today, distribution doesn’t get any better than that. Project Gutenberg Self-Publishing Press also simultaneously distributes your book to our consortium of Internet library branches. To begin you can access the website by typing www.self.gutenberg.org into your browser window. Or search for the Project Gutenberg website using Google by typing “Self Gutenberg” and clicking Google Search. After arriving at the website’s homepage you must first sign-in by selecting the “MyAccount” button at the top right corner of the page. Then enter your username and password and click “Sign In”. Before uploading your book you may want to familiarize yourself with the 3 helpful options in the “Get Published” drop down menu near the top of the page. The first option, the “Submissions Guidelines” details the specific guideline requirements for uploading eBooks to Project Gutenberg’s Self-Publishing Press. In addition this page provides several links to helpful style guide tutorials and even complimentary cover page templates if you have not designed your own book cover. Select the “need a cover template” link. Then be sure “Save File” is selected. Now you can click “OK”. Remember to save your template in a folder you can find easily. We’ve decided to save our template in a folder called “Book Covers”. Then click Save. Be sure to replace all default information on the template with the appropriate information from your book on both the front and back covers. The second option, the “Self-Publish Check List” is a fantastic tool. Simply make certain each task on the checklist has been completed before uploading your book. The final option, “Why Choose Self-Publishing” gives you more information about why publishing your book at the Project Gutenberg Self-Publishing Press is so beneficial to you as an author. Once you’re ready to upload your book select the “Upload” tab near the top of the page. Enter Title, Volume, and Author. You can then select the language your book was written in as well as its category and the subject material. What type of file is your book? Is it a text file in a PDF, Portable Document Format? Is it a MP3 Audio book? Or a Video? If you have a publisher name enter that information here along with the date of publication. If this is the first time your book has been published simply enter today’s date. You can also add a summary of your book as well as a table of contents. You can upload a different, second, photo as your author’s photo by clicking here. And upload an image of your book’s cover art by clicking here. Finally, you can add your book. Before clicking “Submit” at the bottom of the screen please read the Upload Terms of Service and review the Creative Commons licensing information. Then check the “I Agree” box. Notice the Submit button is grayed out until all required fields have been completed. Then, the progress of your upload can be monitored here. Once your book has been approved it is listed in your user profile for everyone to see. The approval process takes up to 48 hours. Congratulations! You’re now a published author with millions of readers ready to begin reading your book.
