Self publishing: Getting the help you need

by brianac


Even though self publishing relinquishes all the power to your hands and you can basically control everything but you must understand that you are only one man. That means that there are problems that you need to handle on your own but there are also problems that you need help with. One of the greatest problems is that you need the big bucks at your disposal to print the work. But that is impossible for you because you don’t have the machine. That is why there are great companies out there such as Amazon Kindle who are going to take care of you and guide you along the way.

Self Publishing on Kindle

e-book-self-publishing-620x349We all know that Kindle has done more for the readers of good books in this digital age than almost anyone else through their digital ink tablets and e-book readers but they are continuing the good work by helping new authors self publish their work. The contract they are offering is very understanding and to a great extent leaves you free to do as you want with your work after they have done publishing it. All they ask is to get paid for everything they are doing only.

The procedure that you have to follow to get into self publishing on Kindle are simple and to a great extent without any hassle whatsoever. The entire task is for you to make a simple payment at the beginning of the contract and then you are to submit the manuscript. Once they have seen the different specifications of the printing that is to be done you can be sure that they are going to quote the best.

If you get into the contract you can get all the prints done on the demand and then pay per piece as the need arises. It is as simple as this but as with any other form of self-publishing you need to handle all the marketing and PR yourself which can a bit difficult for many people if they are not good with computers.

Self publishing on other platforms

We can say that self publishing on Amazon is probably the best but there are other options out there that you should definitely try. Self publishing on Amazon will get you more exposure but there are prices to be incurred. The other smaller companies want to get ahead and hence they are putting together offers that are better than self publishing on Amazon but in the end there is always going to be the loss of a bigger banner in the outcome.

People know that Amazon kindle is the best and they will look for Amazon more. Hence if you are ready to go on a vigorous marketing campaign then you should definitely try and make the best of and go to these other publishers and get the job done at a far smaller price.

In the end the choice lies with you and you can choose what path to take. We can only assure you that this process is one of the best out there and the outcome only depends on the choice you make at the right time.

    Howdy! I realize this is kind of off-topic however I needed to ask.
    Does managing a well-established blog such
    as yours require a lot of work? I am brand new to running a
    blog however I do write in my journal every day.
    I’d like to start a blog so I can share my personal experience and thoughts online.
    Please let me know if you have any kind of recommendations
    or tips for new aspiring bloggers. Appreciate it!
