My book "a man wearing a dress" is now up to almost 200 pages, just short of its final length. Soon I'll write the last few pages, then go into the editing, final design, and publishing stages. Publishing will involve securing copyright, obtaining an international standard book number (ISBN), and a Library of Congress number. Then the big tasks are to arrange for printing (on demand or conventional or a mix of both), distribution houses (so that your local bookstore can order it), and online sales. After that comes a digital version for those who prefer to read their books on portable book readers, iPads, etc. I'm working with folks at IPNE to help make contact with people who can advise me in the process.
