Why is research and fact checking important when I write my book?

Research and Fact Checking

When self publishing books, your facts and research should be meticulous, because they reflect on the rest of your book's content and message. You may want to include Notes in the back of your book, citing your sources for facts and figures, or you may want to include footnotes. You can also include a statement in your text, such as "According the FDA's Web site, today's children are more obese than prior generations."

*Let the reader know where your facts come from, and your book will have more credibility (make sure you use reliable sources, rather than personal Web sites where you cannot verify the information is really correct).
