Are you a first-time author? Have you already published your first book and didn't like the experience? Or are you thinking of writing a book, but just dread the printing and marketing of it? Well, How to Self Publish Inexpensive Books and Ebooks is the book for you. William Allan has written a book recounting his experience of getting his first book published into both print and ebook formats and promoting them. Allan's retired living on a fixed income, so he needed to find inexpensive but professional publishing options. Many first-time authors face similar financial constraints, having more words than money. Allan tells you what you need to know and what to be wary of in the publishing industry. He tells you how to organize your copyright page and all the other pre-book pages. He addresses editing, cover design, page layout, and tax issues. Allan gives you an overview of the U.S. and Canadian book publishing industries and offers advice if you're thinking about print-on-demand publishing. Most importantly, he offers costs and details on 27 U.S. and 13 Canadian book publishers so you can tell what company might best fit your situation. He also offers details of 27 mostly smaller Canadian book publishers and eight children's book publishers. Allan then outlines the costs and details of getting an ebook at 30 publishers in the U.S. and Canada. In all, details of 105 book and ebook publishers are cited in the book. By citing so many publishers, his book includes printers specializing in every imaginable genre of book, including children's, religious, indigenous, fiction and nonfiction, novels, poetry, sports, travel, biographies, mysteries, environment, current affairs, children who are authors, humour, wellness, self help, graphic novels, cookbooks, drama, French, culture, historical, film and more, as well as translation services. It's a complete book for every first-time author. In fact, some of these publishers would print your book at no expense to the author if the content meets their submission lists. And Americans using Canadian publishers would pay considerably less due to the value of the Canadian dollar. Allan offers his picks for print and ebook winners, but he leaves it up to you to decide who to trust with your manuscript. After you get published, you need book launch and marketing advice. Allan offers that too. I offer options to help novelists as well. You spent all that time writing your book. Now you need How to Self Publish Inexpensive Book and Ebooks to help you get your masterpiece out to readers.
