Is There an ISBN in Your Wallet?

One of the most common questions the about to publish author asks is, “Where do I get my ISBN?” Excellent question—start here:

The International Standard Book Number is known to all in the book world as an ISBN. It costs $125 for one and $250 for a block of ten. It’s highly recommend that you purchase a block of 10 because the author usually has at least another book on the “back burner.” And, it’s recommended that your own them outright in your publishing company name.
