The ABC's of POD: A Beginner's Guide to Fee-Based Print-on-Demand Publishing

by Dehanna Bailee

The ABC's of POD: A Beginner's Guide to Fee-Based Print-on-Demand Publishing is exactly that. Bailee shares her own experience with the world of self-publishing. The presentation is simple and direct. It's grounded in her own experience and although lacking in the detail of say Poynter's Self-Publishing Manual, or Levine's The Fine Print, the ABC's will give you the basics of self-publishing.

I particularly like her emphasis on editing! And her chapters on the real costs of POD and figuring royalties are excellent.

The book would be more useful if the table of contents had page numbers, and I'm guessing she'll get those figured out for the next edition, but until then it only gets four coffee cups from. The glossary is useful; the book is short. I think anyone who is considering self-publishing would do well to start with this book.

Bailee also has a database of many POD publishers on her site at POD Database. It looks like she plans to update it quarterly, which will truly be helpful. At the moment it's free, but don't be surprised if that changes over time - it probably should.
