comment ISBN codes for privately sold books?
@Psicofrenia - That's monopoly power for you in action. I don't know why they are the only game in town, but they ARE the only game in town in the US.

comment Does DRM affect copyright or the restrictions on distribution by the author?
I feel the need to mention that few if any DRM systems are effective against piracy for any significant length of time, especially with things like books. Always carefully weigh the hassle factor of DRM against whatever gains it really gets you.

comment Must one have a book cover designed before to publisher?
@Imray - I really don't know if it will help or hurt. I can't imagine a large publisher using it (they'll want to design something to go with whatever marketing plan they come up with). If it were me, I wouldn't mention it until I had a deal, then I'd offer it and not get offended if they were not interested.

The golden rule can be summed up thusly: Money flows TOWARD the author! If you aren't self-publishing, then under NO circumstances should you be paying anyone any fees for anything! If you have an agent, they'll take a cut out of your earnings, and of course your publisher will get the lion's share of the money, and they'll get paid first, but you NEVER pay ANYONE directly!
