What questions should I ask when evaluating on demand publishers?

Evaluating On-Demand Publishers

When evaluating an on-demand publishing company there are several questions you should ask to make sure they are reputable. Look out for hidden fees, disguised as set-up charges or an investment in your book. Try to make sure the publishing company has been in business for a year or more and has a decent backlist of published titles. Take a careful look at the pricing scheme as well. Although this publishing method can be more expensive, it shouldn't be so expensive that no one will want to pay for your paperback. Finally, check to make sure that the contract isn't asking you to sign away rights that should remain with you. As a self-publisher you should own all rights to the books you publish.
