How to Self-Publish Your Book: An Indie-Author’s Guide
Have you written a book but don’t know how to take the first steps toward getting published? Relax, this is a common scenario. Many budding authors write books and then don’t know how to get them published. The truth is that there are two ways to publish your book. You can publish traditionally, or you can self-publish. This book is for authors who wish to self-publish. However, traditionally publishing your book shouldn’t cost you any money either because the process involves finding an agent or traditional book publisher and submitting your query letter and possibly other materials to them in the hopes that they read and accept it. If they do accept it, they will perform the final edits, develop a cover and publish the book. You should get an advance, which means you get paid when you traditionally publish. You do not pay anyone any money. If your “traditional” publisher is asking you for money, run. It’s not a traditional publisher. It’s probably a vanity press.
