20 Steps To Self Publishing A Book

By Shebudgets

In the past, publishing a book meant shopping the book at the right publishers, sending in copy after copy to publishing houses and then crossing your fingers hoping that someone would eventually decide to read your book. They’d fall madly in love with the book you wrote, call you and offer you a six-figure advance, a three book deal and all the publicity in the world. Move over JK Rowling; you’re in the house. Except that most books are never read by any publisher, and chances of not hearing rejection after rejection were slim (even JK Rowling had her Harry Potter series turned down time and time again). Today, you can publish whatever you want, whenever you want using the internet and your own smarts. Here’s how to self-publish your own book – the right way.
