Synopsis

To Self-publish or Not to Self-publish A Seriously Useful Author's Guide by Mick Rooney

Every serious writer at some point considers the path of self-publishing. Now, more than at any other time in book publishing, self-publishing has become the chosen path for authors previously within the mainstream industry and authors starting out on a writing career. To Self-Publish or Not to Self-Publish not only prompts the author to ask the million dollar question - Why do I want to self-publish? - it takes the author carefully through the process of reasoning, and the realities of self-publishing, to help them find the best path forward. It also provides an analysis of the publishing world today and the choices, opportunities and services available. This book will provide advice and guidance to enable and empower every author considering self-publishing to identify reputable and quality services suitable for their book, as well as helping them define what publishing success is for an author.
