All authors need to investigate the most appropriate method of publication before finishing your books. You owe it to yourself -- and your pocketbook -- to learn the advantages and pitfalls of each type. Using decades of working with all three publishing choices, the instructor shares that no method is appropriate for all books and all authors.
For some publishing routes the services provided are quite different; for others the author might pay all the expenses. Can your book be reviewed and sold in bookstores and will you earn more money with one procedure over the others? The answers to these crucial questions -- and others -- will determine the appropriate publishing route.
