The Self-Publishing Manual: How to Write, Print, and Sell Your Own Book

by Dan Poynter

Dan Poynter almost started the self-publishing revolution when he published the first edition of this must-have book back in 1979. Dan knows what hes talking about because hes published his own books, including this one. The book is currently in its 14th edition hes obviously doing something right.

His understanding of self-publishing shows up in the Manual. He gives you the pros and cons of self-publishing, helps you understand the costs, and details a calendar or time table so you can get your publishing ducks in a row. He demystifies the terms without pulling any punches. Self-publishing is far from simple; the Manual makes it understandable and doable.

Poynter also gives you some information on publishing ebooks, CDs and other ancillary items. But the emphasis is on books trade sized paperback books.

He starts by explaining why you should consider self-publishing, and then tells you what makes a salable book. He talks about both the writing and the designing of the book, and the books cover. He not only urges you to begin marketing almost at once, but shows you how to do it..

He even tells you how to cope with success. If you want to self-publish, you simply must have this book.

The book is also available for download in .PDF format, but that edition won't let you make notes, underline and other such necessary markings. This is as much workbook as anything else.
