Bestseller on Your Hands? Publish On Your Own

Publishing a book in today’s economy can be pretty difficult if you’re not already a well-known name. However, that doesn’t mean that you need to make photocopies of your book and just hand them out for free. The truth is that you can publish your own book and get people to buy it or pay attention. Down the road, that could even lead to offers from large publishers who want to buy and distribute your book. Proven sales can even land you a much better deal when established publishers come knocking.

However, knowing how to self-publish a book isn’t easy. Use these tips to help you along the way.

1. Focus on content. Before you get ready to publish, make sure your pages are up to snuff. Edit, edit and re-edit. Hiring a skilled editor to go over your final draft can be very helpful too.

2. Work with a reputable company to have your book designed and printed. Companies like can help you with your design and make sure your book looks professional before other people see it. That means customers and potential publishers.

3. Consider having your book printed on-demand. This way, when customers want your book they can order one and it will be made specifically for them. This can reduce the amount of money you have to spend on pre-printed books that may not move overnight.

4. Have some physical copies of your book on hand. Even printing as few as 100 physical copies to keep and use for promotional is beneficial.
