Are you ready to self-publish your book? Here’s how in three simple steps:

1-Figure out how much help you will need getting your book ready to publish.

Will you need help with the editing or illustrations, or are you confident to make all the decisions on your own? Then, look for a publisher who meets your requirements, either locally through the phone book, or online. Take the time to conduct the appropriate research and you’ll save time and money.

2- Choose the right printer for your book.

Do you just need basic bookbinding? Or do you have special needs such as an oversized book or special colors? Do an online search for a local printer or a specialist printer to fulfill your specific book needs. Look for good ratings with the Better Business Bureau and testimonials from previous customers to ensure you are making the right choice.

3- Don’t let hidden charges surprise you.

Before you pay someone to print your book for you, find out exactly what you’ll be getting for your money. Will the printer use your book in their own advertising, and if so, will you be compensated for it? Does the printer offer help to sell your book, and if so, is there an extra fee? Get your questions answered before you agree to services.

These are three simple steps. But if you follow them, it will be much easier to self-publish your book, save time and money and start selling your book fast!
