Why Page Count Matters

One of the questions we frequently get from cover designers is what the page count is for the print interior for an unformatted manuscript. The short answer is we don’t really know… until we know. The reason is there are many factors that can affect the page count including trim size, line-height, font size, the font used on the body content, and numerous other factors. The page count for your print edition matters because the more pages there are, the more expensive each copy of the book will be. You can get an idea of the production cost per copy on your EduPub print edition. While it may be tempting to do whatever it takes to get the shortest page count possible, you have to keep in mind that having very thin margins and small fonts may create an unpleasant reading experience. Additionally, if you plan on doing a BookBub ad for your book, they will not accept books that are fewer than 150 pageson the print edition (for fiction). Let’s explore some of the factors that affect the page count on the print edition.

Typeface and Font Size

Most print editions use a serif typeface on the body content. For those of you who are not typography nerds, serif fonts are the ones with little “feet” or “strokes” on the end of letters (the most common example being Times New Roman). Most traditional publishing use 11 or 11.5pt serif fonts for the print interior. However, many self-published authors choose a 12 or even a 12.5pt font since they may receive negative reader feedback for being too small to read easily. The font size makes a huge difference in the page count. Below is a chart for a 25,000-word book to give you an idea of the changes for a book set in Adobe Garamond Pro:
  • 11pt = 100 pages (~25,000 words)
  • 11.5pt = 107 pages
  • 12pt = 120 pages
  • 12.5pt = 128 pages
Fontsize
Sans-serif fonts, like Helvetica and Source Sans Pro, are often scaled differently. While setting a fiction book in sans-serif on the body content is rare, you should be aware that the point size is not the same as serif fonts. As an example, Source Sans Pro at 10.5pt will roughly generate the same number of words per page as 12pt Adobe Garamond Pro.

Line Spacing (a.k.a. Leading)

Another huge factor in page count is line spacing, which is occasionally referred to as leading for historical reasons when typesetters would place thin strips of lead in between lines of type. While the difference between each line might be almost unnoticeable to the reader, it has a huge cumulative effect when applied throughout the body content of the entire book. Many of the Adobe typefaces (like Adobe Caslon Pro and Adobe Garamond Pro) already are designed with generous line-spacing, but other serif fonts like Garamond and Times LT require leading adjustment of at least 20% to make the type pleasantly readable. Depending on the author’s preference, leading can be increased to make the content easier to read or decreased to lower the page count. Coming back to our 25,000-word 100 page sample in 11pt Adobe Garamond Pro, here is a chart of how leading affects page count:
  • 11pt /No leading = 88 pages (~25,000 words)
  • 11pt /5% leading = 93 pages
  • 11pt /10% leading = 97 pages
  • 11pt /15% leading = 100 pages
  • 11pt /20% leading = 103 pages
Leading

Trim Size

The physical size of the print edition will obviously affect the page count. Most trim sizes for novels vary between 6x9” (the smallest size available at EduPub and typical for mass market paperbacks) and 6x9” (a good size for long literary and fantasy works). :
  • 6x9”: 73 pages
As a rule of thumb, you can use the following chart to roughly estimate the page count for your print edition based on the word count of your manuscript:
  • 6x9”: 340 words/page

Margins

The outer margin is one of the other big factors affecting page count in the print edition. Lightning Source requires at least a 0.5” outer margin but EduPub lets you go down to 0.25” for novels. We typically don’t recommend going as small as 0.25” on the outer margin because the reader’s thumbs may overlap the type while they are reading. Please note that this does not include the gutter margin (the margins running into the book’s binding). 0.5” outer margins are fairly standard, but the margin can be increased for novellas to get past the 150-page threshold for Book Bub ads. Looking at our 25,000-word 100-page sample, here’s a chart to give you some data. Please note that this sample has a 0.3” gutter margin:
  • 0.5” outer margin: 5x8” 100 pages (~25,000 words)
  • 0.6” outer margin: 5x8” 108 pages
  • 0.75” outer margin: 5x8” 122 pages
  • 0.85” outer margin: 5x8” 133 pages
  • 1” outer margin: 5x8” 158 pages
Here’s a quick diagram of how we are referring to outer and gutter margins for your kind reference:
Margins

Large Print Editions

A Large Print edition is the same content as your mass market print edition but catered toward people with seeing disabilities and the elderly. Many authors do not take advantage of releasing a Large Print edition along with their regular print edition, but it is quite easy to do on EduPub. Under your dashboard go to Description then scroll down and tick the Large Print  to publish your large print book.
Large print editions should have a font size of at least 16pt and with more generous leading (~50%) for readers who have trouble reading standard type. Typically, large print editions should be 6x9”, but they can be any trim size. A large print edition will have a roughly 50–80% increase in page count than a standard print edition with the same content. Please let EduPub eBooks know if you need help getting your large print edition interior ready.

Introduction

Print-on-Demand is a technology that has matured over the past decade and allows small presses and indie authors a financially viable option to publish print books. Publishing your print edition on Edupedia Publications Pvt Ltd (EduPub) is not a difficult process, but it can be confusing for the first-time publisher. EduPub is the leading print-on-demand provider for indie authors, and it is owned by Amazon. 

Prerequisites

To publish on EduPub, this tutorial assumes that you have:
  1. Write mail to editor@edupediapublications.com
  2. a well-formatted PDF file of your book’s interior.
  3. a PDF file of your back cover, spine, and cover
  4. a blurb and five keywords.

Step-by-Step Walkthrough

Start Your New Project: Fill out the fields as follows:
  1. Tell us the name of your project: Pick any name you prefer (note: this is just used as an internal reference in your dashboard and is not necessarily the title of your book)
  2. Choose which type of project you want to start: Pick “Paperback”
  3. Choose a setup process: Choose “Guided” by clicking on “Get Started”

Information Required 

Title (required): Enter the title of your book under “Title” (EduPub eBooks recommends keeping this short < 5 words)
Subtitle (optional): If you have a subtitle, enter it in the “Subtitle” field. An example of a subtitle would be A Thorough Discussion for a book titled Manos The Hands of Fate, A Thorough Discussion.
Primary Author (required): Enter the author name. Do not use ALL CAPS.
Add Contributors (optional): You add it in the “Primary Author” field above. You can add additional authors, illustrators, designers, and many other contributors if you like. Do not use ALL CAPS.
This book is part of a series (optional): If your book is part of a series, click on the check box for “This book is part of a series” and add the series name under “Series Title” and the series number in the “Volume” field. The volume should be a number only, like “1”, “2”, etc. rather than “Book 1”, “Book 2”, etc.
Edition number (optional): If this is a second or subsequent edition, you can enter “2” in the “Edition number” field. Be sure to enter numbers only, not “second”.
Language: Select the correct language from the drop-down menu.
Publication Date: EduPub eBooks recommends using the current date.
Click “Save & Continue”

ISBN

All print books must have an ISBN. This ISBN must be different from the eBook ISBN, if you chose to use an ISBN for your eBook edition. You can get ISBN from Edupedia Publications Pvt Ltd.

Interior

Interior Type: Choose “Black & White” unless you have a color interior. EduPub eBooks only recommends color interiors for art/photography books and children’s books with illustrations. They are substantially more expensive to print, and the quality of the color interiors is not as good as Lightning Source’s.
Paper Color: Choose either “White” or “Cream”. White is considered best for genre-type novels and technical non-fiction, while Cream is considered best for literary-type fiction and non-narrative fiction. These are BB eBooks’ recommendations only, so do what’s right for your brand. Please note that regardless of the paper color, the interior PDF will always be white for your formatted interior.
Trim Size: Click on “Choose a Different Size” to pick your trim. The most popular trim sizes for paperbacks are 8.5x11” and 6x9”. 

Interior Reviewer: Make sure to check the box to allow EduPub to run the automated print checks. This will also automatically load the interior reviewer once the upload and processing is complete.
Click on the “Save” button in the bottom right and the upload will commence followed by the CreateSpace print check. This can take about 5–10 minutes, so it’s a good time to grab a coffee, snack, smoke, or Yoga break, depending on your lifestyle preferences. Once it’s done, the interior previewer should pop up and CreateSpace will notify you with any issues. Clients of BB eBooks should never have any formatting issues—unless something broke with CreateSpace or we really messed up. If you’re not a client, please make sure to fix any formatting issues and redo the PDF interior. Otherwise, CreateSpace may not publish it.
On the interior previewer you’ll notice a dotted gray box around both pages. Don’t worry! The dotted boxes won’t actually show up in your print book. This box is the “safe zone” and all text elements should be inside it (unless you have a full-bleed interior). You’ll notice that the inner margins facing the book binding (a.k.a. the gutter margins) are bigger. This takes into account that there should be a bit more margin around the book’s binding because the paper will have some curvature to it. Running text deep into the binding creates a most unpleasant reading experience. You can click through the pages on the interior previewer if you like, but we generally recommend doing testing with Acrobat Reader in two-page mode because it is a bit faster.
CreateSpace Tips No. 6
Click on “Save and Continue” inside the interior previewer.
If all is well, you’ll get the message, “Our automated print check didn’t find any issues.” Your interior is done!

Cover

1. Select a finish for your book cover: .
2. Choose how to submit the cover of your book: 

Distribute > Channels

Standard Distribution: It is recommended that you select all channels: Amazon.com, Amazon Europe, and the EduPub Store.
Expanded Distribution: This used to cost $25, but is now free. It is recommended you select all. Please note you may have to enter a BISAC code under “Distribution > Description” to allow you to check “Bookstores and Online Retailers.” Please feel free to come back.
Book Description
Description: The “Description” is what shows up on your product page. This is very important so please make sure the blurb is as good as you can get it. You can alter this later on, but it will have to go through the approval process again. For advanced users, you can actually add HTML tags to include formatting elements like bold, italics, and underline. 
BISAC Category: Enter the Book Industry Standards and Communications (BISAC) 
Author Biography (optional): You can add a bio here if you like. For the Amazon page, we recommend using Amazon Author Central to set up your profile. However, filling in the author bio here is important, since your EduPub book will distribute outside of the Amazon ecosystem if you chose the Expanded Distribution channels.
Book Language (optional): Be sure to select the correct language.
Country of Publication (optional): by Default INDIA.
Search Keywords (optional): This is important metadata. Be sure to pick five phrases (note: KDP allows seven) and you can separate with commas. Keywords can be a combination of words (e.g. erotic romance) and Amazon recommends 2-3 words long for each keyword.

Publish on Kindle

Do not fill out anything in this section. EduPub will attempt to convert your PDF into a reflowable eBook—with horrendous results. eBooks should be published via Kindle Direct Publishing rather than CreateSpace. Please view our tutorial on how to publish your eBook at Amazon.

Some research paper submission requires you to write an abstract of the paper to help readers know about your paper before they read. You should take special care inn writing a good abstract and make sure that and the abstract accurately indicates the content of the paper.

Writing a good paper is both science and art. You must work in a systematic and scientific manner to write the research paper and at the same time you need to apply the art of the content organization in the paper while writing.
Think before you start writing. Give a suitable title to the paper you are writing and after completion of the paper you do need to change the title of the paper to reflect the true sense or the central idea of the research paper. The title should be able to express accurately and concisely reflect the content of the paper.
Make sure that you include the name of the authors who have contributed in the paper. Ensure that the listed authors have contributed in the true sense of the term and they should be aware about the whole content, even though someone has written a part of the paper.
The introduction of the paper must convey a clear, identifiable and sufficient context of the study or the paper intents to educate or enhance the knowledge of the readers.  The introduction should make clear what gap the current research is intended to fill and how it is going to help in deciding the future course of action. The introduction should explicitly indicate the objectives, hypotheses, or research questions that the paper is dealing with.
The paper should contain sections inthe paper which describes the research method adopted for the particular study. And it should also give sufficient information to replicate the research methodology like what are the benefits and what are the loopholes in the methods or tools used.  Make sure that your methods of research section provide sufficient information to evaluate the research. In the methods section, ensure that the sources of equipment, organisms, reagents, etc. are adequately identified and listed. In case of use of humans or animals, then the research paper should indicate the appropriate approvals from competent authorities.
Ensure that the research paper is presented in the logical manner. Detailed discussion and analysis of the facts and figures must be presented with adequate figures, charts, tables and diagrams. Ensure that the results are presented in the appropriate details. Make sure that you use appropriate statistical methods used while analyzing and presenting your research.  
In the discussion section make sure that you address the questions or hypotheses posed in the introduction adequately.  Make sure to present a discussion in sufficient context of the study. Make sure that you do an appropriate discussion to address the strengths and weaknesses of the research.  
Finally, you should present the conclusions and recommendations regarding the research results. You should also discuss the future prospects of your research and study to guide fellow researchers engaged or interested in that field of study.

An ISBN is an International Standard Book Number. ISBNs were 10 digits in length up to the end of December 2006, but since 1 January 2007 they now always consist of 13 digits. ISBNs are calculated using a specific mathematical formula and include a check digit to validate the number.
Need for ISBN for Books, Monograph, ebook, Conference Proceedings
Each ISBN consists of 5 elements with each section being separated by spaces or hyphens. Three of the five elements may be of varying length:
  • Prefix element – currently this can only be either 978 or 979. It is always 3 digits in length
  • Registration group element – this identifies the particular country, geographical region, or language area participating in the ISBN system. This element may be between 1 and 5 digits in length
  • Registrant element - this identifies the particular publisher or imprint. This may be up to 7 digits in length
  • Publication element – this identifies the particular edition and format of a specific title. This may be up to 6 digits in length
  • Check digit – this is always the final single digit that mathematically validates the rest of the number. It is calculated using a Modulus 10 system with alternate weights of 1 and 3.
What is an ISBN used for?
An ISBN is essentially a product identifier used by publishers, booksellers, libraries, internet retailers and other supply chain participants for ordering, listing, sales records and stock control purposes. The ISBN identifies the registrant as well as the specific title, edition and format.

What does an ISBN identify?

ISBNs are assigned to text-based monographic publications (i.e. one-off publications rather than journals, newspapers, or other types of serials).
Any book made publicly available, whether for sale or on a gratis basis, can be identified by ISBN.
In addition, individual sections (such as chapters) of books or issues or articles from journals, periodicals or serials that are made available separately may also use the ISBN as an identifier.
With regard to the various media available, it is of no importance in what form the content is documented and distributed; however, each different product form (e.g. paperback, EPUB, .pdf) should be identified separately.
You can find examples of types of qualifying products and more information about the scope of the ISBN here.

ISBNs, the law and copyright

The ISBN is an identifier and does not convey any form of legal or copyright protection. However, in some countries the use of ISBN to identify publications has been made into a legal requirement.

Who should apply for ISBN? 

It is always the publisher of the book who should apply for the ISBN. For the purposes of ISBN, the publisher is the group, organisation, company or individual who is responsible for initiating the production of a publication. Normally, it is also the person or body who bears the cost and financial risk in making a product available. It is not normally the printer, but it can be the author of the book if the author has chosen to publish their book themselves. 
In a number of countries there is detailed legislation regarding publishing so contact your national ISBN agency in good time for advice.

What is ISBN 

The International Standard Book Number (ISBN) is a numeric commercial book identifier which is intended to be unique. Publishers purchase ISBNs from an affiliate of the International ISBN Agency.
ISBN


An ISBN is assigned to each edition and variation (except reprintings) of a book. For example, an e-book, a paperback and a hard cover edition of the same book would each have a different ISBN. The ISBN is 13 digits long if assigned on or after 1 January 2007, and 10 digits long if assigned before 2007. The method of assigning an ISBN is nation-based and varies from country to country, often depending on how large the publishing industry is within a country.

The initial ISBN configuration of recognition was generated in 1967, based upon the 9-digit Standard Book Numbering (SBN) created in 1966. The 10-digit ISBN format was developed by the International Organization for Standardization(ISO) and was published in 1970 as international standard ISO 2108 (the SBN code can be converted to a ten-digit ISBN by prefixing it with a zero digit "0").

Privately published books sometimes appear without an ISBN. The International ISBN agency sometimes assigns such books ISBNs on its own initiative.

Another identifier, the International Standard Serial Number (ISSN), identifies periodical publications such as magazines; and the International Standard Music Number (ISMN) covers for musical scores.

History

The Standard Book Numbering (SBN) code is a 9-digit commercial book identifier system created by Gordon Foster, Emeritus Professor of Statistics at Trinity College, Dublin, for the booksellers and stationers WHSmith and others in 1965. The ISBN configuration of recognition was generated in 1967 in the United Kingdom by David Whitaker (regarded as the "Father of the ISBN") and in 1968 in the United States by Emery Koltay.

The 10-digit ISBN format was developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and was published in 1970 as international standard ISO 2108. The United Kingdom continued to use the 9-digit SBN code until 1974. ISO has appointed the International ISBN Agency as the registration authority for ISBN worldwide and the ISBN Standard is developed under the control of ISO Technical Committee 46/Subcommittee 9 TC 46/SC 9. The ISO on-line facility only refers back to 1978.

Overview

An ISBN is assigned to each edition and variation (except reprintings) of a book. For example, an ebook, a paperback, and a hardcover edition of the same book would each have a different ISBN. The ISBN is 13 digits long if assigned on or after 1 January 2007, and 10 digits long if assigned before 2007. An International Standard Book Number consists of 4 parts (if it is a 10-digit ISBN) or 5 parts (for a 13-digit ISBN)
A 13-digit ISBN can be separated into its parts (prefix element, registration group, registrant, publication and check digit), and when this is done it is customary to separate the parts with hyphens or spaces. Separating the parts (registration group, registrant, publication and check digit) of a 10-digit ISBN is also done with either hyphens or spaces. Figuring out how to correctly separate a given ISBN is complicated, because most of the parts do not use a fixed number of digits.

ISBN is most often used among others special identifiers to describe references and can help to find the same sources with different description in various language versions (for example different spelling of the title or authors depending on language).

Knowing how to get an ISBN as a published author is crucial. Since you can’t publish without an ISBN, we’re helping you learn how in order to publish the right way and why you even need an ISBN number in the first place.
How to get an ISBN for new Book to become Published Author

But you don’t have to even worry about an ISBN number if you don’t have a book ready to publish, right? And it won’t even matter if you don’t publish that book the right way.

What is an ISBN number used for?

Essentially, an ISBN number, or International Standard Book Number, is a regulated 10- or 13-digit identification number which allows libraries, publishers, and book dealers to locate and identify specific books.
What is the purpose of an ISBN number?
ISBN stands for “International Standard Book Number” and before it was implemented in 1967, the method and system for cataloging, ordering, organizing, and locating a specific book was a chaotic mess.
Today, to get your book into a bookstore, a library, or almost any book distribution channel on the planet, you need an ISBN number.
But the process can be really confusing for new authors. There are a number of questions you might be asking yourself about ISBN numbers:
  • How does this long string of numbers on the back of books work?
  • How do you get it?
  • If you’re a published author, do you need an ISBN?
  • Why would you need one?
  • These are all questions answered in this article.
    Let’s unweave the intricate web of how to get an ISBN and how they work in the publishing industry.

    How To Read an ISBN number with an ISBN Example

    As of 2007, the ISBN is a 13-digit number. This came about in part because of the large volume of eBooks now being published every year. Knowing how to break down and interpret these 13 digits aren’t of much use and interest to most book readers, but for publishers and distributors, it’s a necessity.
    If you want to publish lots of books under your own publishing name then it’s something you may want to pay attention to. You can tell a lot about a book and its author by reading the ISBN number.
    The 13 digit ISBN number helps:
    • Identify the specific title
    • Identify the author
    • Identify the type of book they are buying
    • Identify the physical properties of that particular book
    • Identify the geographical location of the publisher
    Let’s break it down and look at what all these numbers mean.

    Where is the ISBN number on books?

    The ISBN is usually found above the barcode on the back of the book. However, they’re not the same.
    The barcode is much different than the ISBN number.
    This is an important distinction because:
    • When you purchase an ISBN you don’t automatically get a barcode
    • The barcode of your book can change, while your ISBN can remain the same.
    We’ve already discussed what data the ISBN carries, however, the barcode includes extra information such as the book’s fixed price and the currency it’s being sold in.
    Barcodes are a necessary element of your book as they allow for most retailers and distributors to scan your ISBN for retail and inventory reasons.
    The standard barcode is known as the EAN (European Article Number) barcode, and your barcode must be in this format to sell your book in bookstores.

    Do ISBNs expire?

    In short, no. ISBN numbers never expire or go bad. In fact, if you have one from a long time ago, you can simply reconstruct it for use.
    How to Read a Barcode
    If you look at the picture of a standard barcode, you’ll notice two barcodes side by side. The barcode that appears on the left is the EAN generated from the ISBN number.
    The other number appearing on the right is a 5-digit add-on, called an EAN-5, that contains the price of the book. The first digit is a 5 and is a must for scanners to read. The 4-digits after the five indicates the price of book. 

    How to Buy ISBN no. 

    To buy a barcode you must first purchase an ISBN. You can buy your barcodes at Edupedia Publications Pvt Ltd and they even offer a barcode-ISBN combo.

    How Many ISBN Numbers To Get

    So how many ISBNs should you get?
    First off let’s clarify a few common mistakes:
    • You can only use an ISBN once. The ISBN is a unique number for that particular book, and can be assigned once, and only once, to that title. It can’t be used with any other book in the future, even second versions of the same book.
    • You don’t need an ISBN to sell in each individual country. ISBNs are international, they are just assigned locally. A US-based publisher can purchase their ISBN through Bowker, but can stock their book worldwide using that ISBN.
    • You need an ISBN for every specific format of the book and any new versions. Want to sell your book in print, as an eBook, and also as an audiobook? That’s great, however, you need a different ISBN for each one. If you want to publish a revised and updated version you’ll also need a new ISBN. (This doesn’t cover fixing some typos and errors).
    • If you create a series of books you can’t use the same ISBN for them. You can use the same ISSN, however. Many fiction and nonfiction authors have an ISSN number assigned to their book series. ISSN stands for International Standard Series Number and can be purchased from the Library of Congress. However, each book in the series will need its own ISBN.
    Buying a single ISBN might seem feasible if you only want to publish one title, but remember that you need an ISBN for each format. So if you want to publish your book as an audiobook, you’d need a brand new ISBN for that. As well as needing different ISBN numbers for your eBook and print versions.
    Not to mention that you’ll need an ISBN number for any future books you publish, perhaps as sequels to your book.
    We recommend that if you’re serious about making book sales, you should purchase at least a bulk of 10 ISBNs. That gives you 3 ISBN numbers to use for publishing as an eBook, in print, and as an audiobook. You can keep the remainder for any future books you might publish.

    How to Get an ISBN final steps

    Now that you have a very good idea how to buy and use ISBNs for your own books, all the best on setting this up. If you want to be recognized as a publisher and have your books available to a larger global audience by registering through Bowker, consider investing in your own ISBN numbers.
    Think of it as buying a piece of property: You own it and it is registered in your name.

For Research Scholars doing Ph.D., it is mandatory to publish their research papers at international level journals. And Many of the students who will apply for further studies in technical courses will discover that relevant published research papers help during the admission process. So here we are giving some steps to follow while writing and publishing:
How to write and Publish Research Paper

Introductory

The first activity for publishing a technical paper is to figure out your specialized area of interest. Make sure you had carried out enough studies on basics of that problem. Then you have you to update yourself with the ongoing technical events in your preferred field. You can do this by
i) Understanding and goggling a lot of technical papers. There are a lot of journals and IEEE papers floating around on the web.
ii) Go to one or more conferences, listen carefully to the best talks, and find out what people are thinking about.

Once you are done with the above-mentioned steps, then you are fit for writing a paper.

View current Papers

Read everything that might be related gives you the different perspective of the focus problem. But be selective too, for not getting too much deviated from your topic of interest. Getting used to simulation software is much useful for simulating your work. You can find a lot of time during the days and utilize those vacations & weekends days.>

A jump start

When you first start reading up on a new area, ask your fellow researcher what is the most useful magazines and conference proceedings are in your area and ask for a list of important papers that you should read. This activity will give you a jump start.

Many scholars and researchers find it hard to start writing articles for journals. The way forward is turning your thesis or dissertation into a nice article which can be published in our journal. The publication of the major findings and research method in journal ensures that your research work will be available to many more people. Few people read a thesis, but when you get your summarized research published in the form an article then your research reaches to a large number of readers as our published articles are indexed in major search engines and other important forums like Google Scholar.
It is good that you got your PhD or Master's or even your graduation project completed and submitted. Very few people will be able to access them and learn from your research as the college or university library is not linked to other libraries of the world and your contribution to the knowledge bank will be archived.

As an independent author, you obviously hope each new reader will appreciate your writing. But your fans are also a crucial component in your book-marketing efforts, helping you spread news about your career through word-of-mouth recommendations, social media sharing, and more.
In other words, without turning customers into readers, and readers into fans — your path to success will become impassable. So, it’s important to get as MANY people as possible to become customers. Here’s how that happens, in reverse order. 
Before someone buys your book, they’ll probably read your book description, blurbs, bio, and maybe even skim a few pages from chapter one.
Before they can do any of that reading, they’ll have to pick the book off a shelf, or perhaps click to the book’s page on Amazon, B&N, etc.
And before they are compelled to click a link or pick up a book, they’ll have to be attracted to your book’s cover (or thumbnail image).
Then if we rewind far enough, there’s the marketing/promotion work that brought this potential customer to the place where they could even view your book cover (on an end-cap or shelf, or on a website, blog, eBook retail store, etc.)
But let’s go back to step 3: your book cover HAS to be compelling. At this point in the game, when you’re trying to attract as many customers as possible, your book cover is THE most important part of your book. At this point in the game, the book cover is not just the first thing someone sees; it’s the ONLY thing someone sees — and they must decide based on the book cover alone whether they’re going to take some additional action to investigate what’s inside your book.
A book cover is an invitation — a way of seducing the reader. It beckons, inviting them to enter the world of your book and dance with your characters for awhile. It makes a promise about what kind of music they’ll be dancing to.
Your cover should convey the tone and genre of your story, be eye-catching and, most importantly, look like it’s been professionally done.

An email list is a list of subscribers who have ‘opted-in’ to receive emails from you. They've signed up because they're interested in the content and offers you can give them. This is a great way for authors and online marketers to reach their audience. Everyone can benefit from keeping a list, and here are ten reasons you need to start one right away.

1.  Profits

The old cliché “The money is in the list” is actually quite true. Your list is a captive audience that has actively chosen to receive your offers. This is why lists are so profitable for marketers.

2.  An Entrance to Your Sales Funnel

When a person subscribes to your list, they're starting a relationship with you. This is a good way to draw prospects into your sales funnel. From here, you can engage your subscribers with valuable information and offers.

3.  Direct Contact

Email is the most direct way to reach your readers because your messages are delivered straight to their email inboxes.

4.  Personalize Your Marketing

When someone opts in to your list, they're making a mental commitment. It's not the same as casually dropping in on your blog or website. A list creates a personal connection between you and your readers.

5.  Exclusive Offers

The offers you make through your email list are valuable to your subscribers partly because they're exclusive. That is, you can only get them by joining the list. This creates a special “club” for your readers, a kind of loyalty program.

6.  Relationship Building

Because email marketing is a more direct and personal approach, it's a great way to build a relationship between you and your readers, which is what all authors need and should want.

7.  An Asset to Your Business

A list of subscribers adds value to your brand. Your email list can be calculated as an asset belonging to your business. If you have a large and responsive list, this can help you attract publishers, press coverage, and so much more.

8.  Feedback

Email marketing isn't just a one-way interaction. You also get feedback from your subscribers on how you're doing. This feedback comes from your email marketing analytics and also directly when subscribers send you messages or when you ask them questions.

9.  Get to Know Your Audience

Interacting with your audience through email and making various offers to them helps you get to know your readers better. When you know your target audience well, you can make better offers to them that increase your profits while meeting their needs more effectively. This would include writing books you know that they would like, or writing your marketing material with their interests in mind.

10. Everybody's Doing It

Everybody is marketing through email, and this most likely includes your competition. This means you need to be doing it also. There's a good chance your competitors aren’t doing it as well as they could, so this gives you an opportunity to get an edge on them.
Before starting your list, decide exactly what you'd like to do with it. Is it going to be an entrance into your sales funnel, a vehicle to build your brand's reputation, or a means of profiting directly? If you define your purpose well, you'll better understand what you need to do in order to profit from your list.

No human investigation can be called real science if it cannot be demonstrated mathematically.
