Self Publish your Book

Most people, at some time in their lives, have thought of writing a book. But with no way of knowing how to have it published, the idea was usually passed over and forgotten. And the old, frustrating way of trying to become a published author was to first write a book and then start sending out letters and sample chapters to as many agents and publishers as you possibly could. Sadly, out of every 50,000 manuscripts a publisher receives, only 1 or 2 are actually published – AND it usually takes 3 to 4 years before your book will go to press.
And then, after all that, it’s STILL your responsibility to market your own book – at your own expense – while the publisher saves their marketing efforts for their best-selling authors.
And if that’s not hard enough; if your book sales are considered by the publisher to be low – say, less than forty thousand a year – then your book is quickly withdrawn and listed as “out-of-print.”
So don’t waste your time sending your manuscript out to hundreds of publishers. Instead, publish it yourself.
