As I sat here thinking toward the end of March what I’d do for each letter of the alphabet over the month of April, one of those letters that’s hard to find a word for is the letter ‘I’. I wanted to keep my theme going with either literary terms or something writing related and the only thing I could come up with was ISBN.
When you’re a writer and one day your book gets published, that little number is huge. It’s almost like a fingerprint in that an ISBN is unique to each book published. It might even be the same book but you will have a different number if it’s hardback and if it’s paperback as well as if it’s an ebook. There can be many different reason why you’d have a different ISBN for the same book. I’ve even seen a different one for reprints of the same books because the cover is different or maybe it’s been an updated version or whatever it is. On Google you can search by the ISBN if you have the number.
I think the day my book finally gets an ISBN I’ll do my own sort of happy dance as that means my dream is becoming a reality.
