Self publishing can make you into a published author in a matter of minutes! Thanks to self publishing the world of online book publishing and book printing has been brought to you, out of the hands of the huge publishers into your own hands. Now you can self publish your books fast and easy, whenever you want to!
Why Self Publishing?
The obvious reasons would be that its fast easy to do and very cheap. Anyone trying to publish using a big publishing company will see that it not only takes time and money to get a deal up and running, you need more than basic knowledge of the business and its rules and regulations. Leaving a publishing deal with a big publisher feeling unsatisfied is something a lot of wannabe authors have experienced.
So, instead of taking the step into the shadows of real publishing, you choose the option of self publish your new masterpiece. Youíll get all the numbers up front and have a complete control of what happens, pricing, where to sell and the book itself. You can of course get professional help with anything involved in the self publishing deal if you need to, but that will of course add some costs to your publishing adventure.
Become a Self publishing Bestseller
You dream about becoming the next big, bestselling author around the world and happily self publish your new 98page book about cactus smoothies. Soon after the release of your book to the world market you sit by your computer, late at night with all the lights out in your house, your family in bed sleeping and only the flickering light of the screen playing over your sad face as you check the sales stats showing no sales of your book.
A lot of people jump into self publishing with the hopes and dreams of becoming the new Stephen King, only to find that the real world is much harder than they thought. Just because you can publish a book, offer it to almost every living soul on the internet, doesnít mean you will sell any copies of it. Having this in mind can make your publishing less painful.
What can Self Publishing Do for You?
Once you have published your book you can of course call yourself published author. Technically this is correct but the term published author used by self publishers is something frowned upon by ďreal published authorsĒ having their printed books published through a publisher. This doesnít mean you canít say it!
Book quality is something some may care about and others not. If youíre going for a published book and nothing more, get some 20 PLR articles, put them one after the other in a word processor like open office, save as pdf, slap an image of a cat on the front, give it a name and publish. No one will like it, it will look like something the cat dragged in and it will do only one thing to your name and reputation, and itís not a good thing.
My advice is without any doubt to put in some good hours of work, at least trying to create something useful. You might not have the best book out there nor the most innovative but if you at least format it well, create a table of contents, fabricate a good front page and do it all with some sense of criticism of what youíre doing, youíll at least end up with a book readers can see you cared enough about to put in some work.
The beast is of course if you can go all the way. Come up with a good idea, do research, plan the book, gather material, write and format and keep the quality up all the way through.
