Even though conventional wisdom suggests otherwise, creative people can copy other people's work and it is legal. How is this possible? By using the vast pool of creative works that fall into a category called Public Domain. This book shows how the author has built a public domain publishing company on a shoestring, how he has used his company to publish his own writing and how he optimizes his relationships with other publishing entities like Create Space, Lightning Source and Amazon.

The Public Domain Publishing Bible (Book Web Site)
Not everyone can conjure up an original best seller. This book is for those who love books and the literary world but would rather publish other people’s masterpieces than labor on their own.
Authors and creative professionals will no doubt find this book of use as well. The cornerstone of using public domain information is to creatively build upon existing ideas and works of art.
With some fresh ideas, and using this book, anyone can do what I have done on a shoestring. There are many aspiring authors who find it comforting to run a publishing company while working on their own creative literary urges. Finding an agent or getting a book published by an unknown author is a major challenge . Having a publishing background and company can be the only hope to those who wish to see their books published.
The title of the book has the word Bible in it. This paradoxically suggests that I will herein show you my way. What is written here however is not set in stone; it can be subject to interpretation as it is with the “good book” itself.
To further explain the title; reality is that on demand publishers do not get royalty as the title alludes to it. For some reason most business participants, lulu.com and even Ama-zon, call it such, so I left the title alone.
We as publishers make money from the difference between the printing cost and the price we set our books at wholesale, times the number of books sold. Royalty or profit, who is to quibble? To me it is all the same, money in the bank, month after month.
I am neither a copyright lawyer nor a legal expert in publishing. I am a publisher with a successful publishing business that I run in my part time, while holding a full time job and raising a daughter. No information in this book is intended to imply that this is an easy business that will alleviate having a job or will make the reader rich. This is, however a business that requires very little start-up cost and no full time involvement.

Your book is great, and has a lot of useful information, both for people who are "would-be" publishers, and those simply looking to make some money online. Your SEO descriptions are in simple, easy to understand terms, unlike some others I've read and had no clue what they were talking about.
