Self-Publishing in German
Self-Publishing in German
The German e-book market is growing rapidly and readers are hungry for more books - your books.

In this book, you will learn how to go about translating your book, what to look out for when choosing a translator and what legal issues you have to consider. For example, did you know titles in Germany are protected and you can’t use one that already exists?

Once you have your finished translation, you will have to decide on how to publish the book. Direct with retailers, through a distributor or a mix of both – we’ll take a detailed look at all of the options to help you make an informed decision.

We’ll also discuss how to produce print and audio versions of your book to give you maximum exposure.

The thing that may be most daunting for authors who don’t speak any German is how to market your book. How do you market in a foreign language? Where to get reviews? How do you access retailer promotions? Is there a German version of Bookbub?

This in-depth guide contains interviews with experts including a lawyer and a cover designer, insider tips from other authors as well as case studies that will help you succeed with your German self-publishing adventure.
