How to self-publish a book.
Are you interested in how to self-publish a book? It is a hot topic. A veteran children’s book illustrator said in a blog, “Savvy authors don’t use print on-demand services.” Successful authors quickly learn that they need to print books on press. But, are they getting the best quality at a reasonable cost?
Make it happen with Star Print Brokers.
Printing books in Asia is key … but not China. We make it easy and risk-free. Star Print Brokers shows authors how to make your book a reality. SPB is the ultimate source for affordable, high-quality offset book printing done on sheet-fed presses and printed in signatures.
Another tip on how to self-publish a book is marketing. If a publisher takes on a new author, they will be expected to do much of the marketing. Publishers have a spending limit.
Become a self-publisher. Buy an ISBN and barcode. Print with us for quality, affordable books. Send out press releases, create a website, become social. Sell books on Amazon, but fulfill the books yourself. The Amazon site has high-traffic. Get found through good keywords. Get all the custom options we offer in a book printing on press, in addition to lower costs.
Another factor in how to self-publish a book, is to learn about distribution. Most new authors don’t get their book put in brick-and-mortar stores. Their book — for a fee — is placed on a list that goes to bookstores. But, the ISBN contains all the information that bookstores need.
Why settle for royalties when authors do most of the marketing?
