Learn about Self-Publishing

If you are considering self-publishing, but don't know how, you can easily learn.

Entire organizations exist to help a self-publisher get started and maximize profits. Such as:

  • The Independent Book Publishers Association

  • Small Publishers of North America

Every successful small or self-publisher writes and publishes. Collectively they have documented every step of self-publishing a book. Most people begin by reading:

  • Complete Guide to Self Publishing by Tom and Marilyn Ross

  • The Self-Publishing Manual by Dan Poynter

Other small or self-publishers will view you as a collaborator, not a competitor. The real competition is the little publisher against the big New York publishers. So go to a bookstore, or a publishing organization's website and start learning now!
