ONE’S passion in writing can also be a good source of living.
For textbook writing seminar workshop lecturer and educator Dr. Rolando Bernales, also a lawyer and creative writer, his first ever text book has ignited more his passion into writing resulting to good earning which he enjoys up to now.
This was made possible with the help of the Mutya Publishing House that takes charge of books intended for publication including the giving of a good amount of royalty that will make every partner book writer happy.
Even the students’ research studies that are usually just stacked up in the library of schools can be transformed into interesting books attracting a better number of readers coming from a wide area of coverage.
But before starting to write books for publication, there’s a need to know more about the meaning of plagiarism and how to avoid it.
According to him, the first thing to do is to observe originality. This means that the book’s content should not be a result of copy and paste style from the internet but a result of one’s own creation.
Another is to seek permission to those who owns it, translate it and document sources, and finally quote your informers highlighting the important information that made an impact.
Writing textbooks need not to be done solo. Writers of the same field from different schools can work together to ensure a complete and well-researched output. For instance, those who intend to publish professional education books can work collectively for the same goal.
Interested writers aiming on publishing books and hoping to earn more income may seek the help of Mutya Publishing House to start a career on the said field.
