Self Publishing Heroes

Some pretty famous books have started out as self published. This proves that self publishing a book can be quite profitable and even notable. Look at these successful self published books:

  • Author Richard Bolles originally self published "What Color is Your Parachute," which has become the Bible for mid-career job changers.
  • James Redfield self published "The Celestine Prophecy" which was picked up by a major publishing house, giving him a six-figure advance
  • Peter Bowerman originally self published his bestseller, "The Well-Fed Writer."

All of these books were wildly successful and show that self publishing a book can be very lucrative if it is the right book at the right time.
