  1. Publishing

    Publishing is the process of production and dissemination of literature, music, or information — the activity of making information available to the general public. In some cases, authors may be their own publishers, meaning: originators and developers of content also provide media to deliver and display the content for the same. Also, the word publisher can refer to the individual who leads a publishing company or imprint or to a person who owns a magazine. Traditionally, the term refers to the distribution of printed works such as books and newspapers. With the advent of digital information systems and the Internet, the scope of publishing has expanded to include electronic resources, such as the electronic versions of books and periodicals, as well as micropublishing, websites, blogs, video game publishers and the like. Publishing includes the stages of the development, acquisition, copy-editing, graphic design, production – printing, and marketing and distribution of newspapers, magazines, books, literary works, musical works, software and other works dealing with information, including the electronic media. Publication is also important as a legal concept:

Consequently, I have equally succeeded in making global impact and positively influencing or changing the thoughts, mindsets, lifestyles, beliefs and lives of millions of people via my thought-provoking quotes. Now, that's why they (the posterity) will surely remember me and celebrate me perpetually as a Great man, writer, motivator, inspirer or inspirator. Besides that, the posterity ahead of me will eventually remember me and celebrate me more and more by virtue of my upcoming books. I have seen the future. -Emeasoba George
