Where is Tim O’Reilly’s blog post about the cost of book publishing, especially the cost of physical printing?

I read in a forum that Tim O’Reilly wrote a blog post about publishing books, particularly where he explained that the actual cost of printing a book is a relatively small percentage of the overall cost (paying for editors, proofers, typesetters, jacket art, etc.). Where the heck is this blog post?

Is this it?

How do I get a ISBN for a book that is not a self publishing ISBN.?

I want to market my own novel. I do not want to self publish at least not in the normal sense. I want a regular ISBN number like on most books that are published. How do I get it? How do I do it?

You may obtain an ISBN through R.R. Bowker at this link: There is not a real differentiation between a self-published ISBN and any other type. They are simply unique identifiers used to distinguish one title from another, like a social security number, as books, like people, can have similar or the same names. Each publishing house has their own prefixes (Dorrance Publishing for example uses both 0-8059- and 1-4349-), and unless you have your book produced though an existing publisher with its own ISBN numbers, you will more than likely need to obtain one on your own. In any case, please be assured that one ISBN number obtained through R. R. Bowker is as legitimate as any other.

Is it a good/bad idea to put your writing online if you plan on publishing it someday when it’s finished?

if it’s a good idea where would you recommend posting it?

I would never (and will never) share my ideas or writing in any shape or form onliine. Why?–Someone could easily take credit for what does not belong to them.

I call this protecting my writing. You should probably do the same for yours. There is no telling who might notice your writing one day and make a profit off of it, etc. I would be extremely careful.

Also, if it’s already free online, why would the publishing companies spend any money publishing it? This is pretty much repeating what others have said, but it’s true.
