What’s It Mean? New Definition
///////////////////////////////

Page Number: Whether numbered to the eye, or “unnumbered”, each page carries it’s own number designation. Unnumbered pages may exist out of the normal numbering scheme (12A, 12B, etc.), but still must be identified in some way. A book that is numbered 144, 145, 147 should have a blank 146 and still may need corrected.

Page Number (Electronic Manuscript): Number of page from the beginning of the manuscript. this file page number, not manuscript page number. i.e. the last page of the book is numbered 100, but there is a frontice piece and 8 alternately numbered pages making the last electronic manuscript page number 110.

Consider offering true print on demand (POD) hard copy editions to complement all electronic editions you may publish. Produce a manuscript suitable for production, on the page size of your choice, choose your binding preference(s), and keep a current quotation for single books. Offer POD for all electronic editions based on your cost.

Publishing a hard copy edition (unbound or in hard or soft cover) one-at-a-time (print on demand) presents some unique options most printed editions do not have. As you are printing a single book for a single customer, consider adding value to the book by including the following offers:

  1. Number each POD book you produce. Keep track of books in hard cover and soft cover, or total produced. Your first could be 1 in 2014, 1 Print on Demand, or some other way – the next ordered would be 2, etc.
