What is Self-Publishing?
Self-Publishing is the act of publishing your own book. In the most basic terms this could be printing out your book and selling it yourself through various channels, however advances in the self-publishing industry sector have made self publishing and effective and reliable option for authors who either want to keep more of the profits for themselves, can’t get published by a major label or simply want to maintain control of their book.
These days self-published authors typically use a distribution service that ensures your book is available for sale on amazon.com, Barnes and Noble as well as other major online or offline stores. Companies such as Writers Out Publishing who offer distribution usually offer print on demand, ISBN assignment and drop shipping as part of the self-publishing services.
