What Is Self-Publishing? http://www.ebookcrossroads.com/self-publishing.html
Simply put, self-publishing means you are responsible for all aspects of production, marketing and distribution of your book. This is not to say that you have to perform every task, but you do have to make sure each task gets done – and you will bear the costs to have them done.
In exchange for taking on these responsibilities and costs yourself, you will have complete control over your book and the profit it generates.
However, before you begin, keep this one thing in mind – writing is an art but publishing is a business! If you are going to take on the publishing responsibilities you will need to prepare and follow a business plan.
The above statement may sound a little daunting, but don’t despair[…] There are plenty of resources to assist you… Best of luck to you with your new book!
