D.I.Y vs Assisted Publishing
It is possible to work your way through the process of publishing a book on your own. It will take time and a lot of research but it can be done.
The whole process has several components you will need to learn about:
Choosing and negotiating with the right editor
Finding a designer that understands the format you need to publish
Classifying the book and generating ISBN codes
Selecting the right prices for your book in various markets
Getting a print on demand service that will satisfy the needs of your customers
Saving your work in the right files for eBook and print on demand services
Uploading your work to the major eBook retail websites
Getting all the right keywords so your book can be found by readers
Thinking up an effective marketing plan and then executing it
This can be a lot of work for many authors. Time restraints mean that many people need help. There are companies out there to guide you through the process.
