THE FINE ART OF SELF PUBLISHING by Mark Levine
Before you are forced to eat humble pie and before you publish that book do some research. Start with the book THE FINE ART OF SELF PUBLISHING by Mark Levine. Don’t take my word for it, even though I have published a print book and a few ebooks and have made numerous of mistakes. This is the FIFTH edition which should tell you that a lot of people have read it and there is a demand for it.
THE FINE PRINT OF SELF PUBLISHING is an easy to read, much easier than some of the other books I have (and have given away), book on what it means to be a published author.
There are a lot of things you need to know about publishing. For example: this book explains the difference between: self-publishing, vanity publishing and traditional publishing as well as the pros and cons of each. Do yourself a favor and read this prior to finishing your manuscript. It is also important to know: not all self publishing companies are created equal.
Based on what I did a few people I know decided to self-publish but do it there way- for them the humble pie is ready but they have yet to admit that despite spending thousands of dollars their way was not better. Though I read quite a few books, attended a few webinars and talked to quite a few people before publishing I wish I had purchased THE FINE PRINT OF SELF PUBLISHING prior to writing The Truth About Vashtai or the 3 published ebooks. I will, however, be using this book as a reference from this moment forward,
Even if you have self-published before I recommend this book and if your plan is to submit your book for publishing you really need to read this book. Get it, read it and get a copy for a friend.
