Straight talk for fiction & nonfiction writers about producing & marketing your own books. Should I find a publisher, use a vanity press or self-publish? How can I get my book distributed through major booksellers? What about eBooks? Copyright? ISBN Numbers? Help! How much can I really do myself? What's it going to cost me? It's never been easier to publish and market your own books, but success depends on good writing, quality production, hard work and making informed choices. The One Hour Guide to Self-Publishing offers a solid overview of what it takes to produce, distribute and promote your book in printed and e-book formats. This Book assumes you have a small budget, limited time and would rather be a writer than a full-time book publicist. If you're thinking about publishing your own book, The One Hour Guide to Self-Publishing should be your very first stop.
