Content of this book defies my own 2-point advice to authors. 1. Never publish your own book. A professional publisher has own network of clients. Your book may land in many libraries and many bookseller shops soon after it is printed. 2. Never distrust your publisher. Royalty paid to Authors is the main factor behind success stories of well settled publishers. Publishers with-holding Authors’ share come and go; they generally don’t settle in business. In case you have irresistible apprehensions against a publisher, first divorce that publisher. You gain little in canvassing against a publisher. A genuine publisher invests own money. The Author is supposed to be paid and not to pay. Around 1968, my publisher Jaypee Brothers, provided me a ream of paper, pens, ink, pencils I used for writing manuscript.

A new world has opened to writers who wish to have their words turned into finished books. With technological advances in typesetting, printing, distribution, and sales, self-publishing has become a reality. But while converting your writing into a commercially available title may sound relatively easy--based upon the claims of some companies that offer this service--there are many important considerations you should be aware of before going to press. Publishing expert Dr. Jan Yager has created an easy-to-follow guide that will take you from a book's conception and writing to its production and sales. Whether your work is fiction or nonfiction, How to Self-Publish Your Book offers sound and proven advice at every turn, enabling you to avoid common pitfalls along the way to becoming a self-published author. The book is divided into three parts. Part One takes you through the initial manuscript preparation--setting your goals, writing, sequencing, editing, and proofing, as well as creating a business plan for your book's eventual release. Part Two focuses on the actual production of your book. It explains the importance of cover and interior design, what you need to know about producing physical books and e-books, and how to turn your title into an audiobook. Part Three provides key information on how to market and sell your book--subjects that are crucial to a title's success, but of which most writers have very little understanding. Also included is a valuable resource section that guides you to websites which offer essential information on self-publishing service providers, including complete self-publishing companies as well as freelance editors, proofreaders, printers, distributors, marketers, and publicists. Today, self-publishing workshops and lecturers charge hopeful writers hundreds of dollars, promising to turn their self-published books into bestsellers. The fact is that your book's chance of success starts at its origin, not with the finished product. However you choose to produce your book, whether through a self-publishing company or through separate services, here is a complete road map to what lies ahead--based not on hype or wishful thinking, but on Dr. Jan Yager's lifetime of experience in the world of publishing.

If you have ever dreamed of writing and publishing your own book, you can realise that dream through self-publishing. Self-publishing is the route many writers choose these days to make their works available to the reading public. Self-publishing today is different from what it used to be many years ago when authors had to spend a lot of money to publish their book. Today, authors can self-publish their book for free or for as little as $100 depending on the self-publishing platform they choose. As a soon-to-be author, the first thing you need to do to self-publish a book is to know your genre. One of the rules of writing is that you should write about what you know. If you have a specific genre that you enjoy reading, chances are that that is the genre you will want or like to write about. Consider your interests and the types of book that you read before you decide on the genre you want to venture into. Your major aim of writing a book should not be to make money. It should be about something you have interest and passion for. There a lot of genres available in both fiction and non-fiction writing. Before you start writing your book, have a plan of what the book will be about and the genre it will fit in. You need to focus on a specific genre when you are writing a book so you can market it. Some books may cross genre lines, such as paranormal and romance books, while some books will fit neatly into a genre. What your book is about should be very clear to the would-be reader so they will be interested in what you have written to want to buy the book. Most readers have the types of books they like to read and have a habit of sticking to a few genres. There are different genres for both fiction and non-fiction books. You need to make sure your book stands out from other books in the same category. If you are writing a romance novel, for instance, how do you make it stand out from other romance novels that are already in the bookstores? This is a question you must answer. Once you have determined your genre and know exactly what you want to write about, you should begin to think of marketing your book. Make it something that prospective readers will choose when they see it in bookstores or online. This will set it apart from other books of the same kind and lure readers to buy it. You can make a career out of self-publishing your books and marketing them to the right audience. After you have decided on what you are going to write about and what will make your book stand out from the rest, you can then begin to outline your book. You should write down an outline of the book and the points you are trying to make. Well-written books convey a message. Make sure your book conveys a good message to the readers that they can take away from the book. Read books in the genre you are interested in writing so you can get the feel for that type of writing. Reading is a very good way to improve writing skills. Before you start to write your book, read the genre that you want to write in and have a good idea of what you want to say in your own book. Get a copy of this book to learn how you can take advantage of the self-publishing opportunities available.
