Registrations

You need to get registered

Libraries, retailers and distributors rely on registrations to track books, publishers and related activities. These registrations consist of categorization information, numbers and codes. Proper registrations on your book confers the legitimacy required to ensure that your book gets circulated, distributed and sold. Africanamericanbookandmedia.com can help you with some of the necessary publisher registrations for your book.


ISBN $125

ISBN stands for International Standard Book Number. This 13-digit number appears with a barcode on the back of your book. The number is unique to your book and is used by booksellers, libraries and retailers to identify it for purposes of stocking and ordering. Without this number, for all intents and purposes your book does not exist. Africanamericanbookandmedia.com will take care of having an ISBN number assigned to your book.

Barcode $25

In addition to an ISBN number, your book will also need a unique scanable barcode that complies with publishing industry standards. The barcode, which is printed on the back of the book, is used by retailers, booksellers and wholesalers to read your book’s ISBN electronically. The barcode allows booksellers to easily track sales and update book prices. Africanamericanbookandmedia.com can handle this step for you.
