Chapter 1 (*) Producing a Book

You have finished using PreTeXt to write a textbook, research monograph, laboratory manual, writer's handbook, or some other scholarly work, and you want to share it openly with students and other readers. Good! That's why we created PreTeXt, and why we include this chapter. There is more to do.

This chapter will try to distill our personal experience, along with many conversations with other authors confronting these same decisions. But recognize there is a lot of advice here, and a bit of an attitude, simply for your consideration. The decisions are yours.
