Self-publishing ResourcesSelf-published authors go it alone and publish a book without the help of a traditional publisher. A self-published author can pay for any service that a publisher typically might provide, such as editing or marketing, or they can do this work themselves. The stigma of self-publishing has eroded over the past several years thanks to the Internet and electronic publishing. Electronic publishing makes it very easy for an author to publish his or her book as an ebook and sell digital copies of it. However, the ease of ebook publishing also means increased competition for authors due to increasing number of ebooks available. Our self-publishing section contains resources to help you learn more about self-publishing and book promotion.
