What is self-publishing? Those of you who think the self-evident answer is too obvious are mostly wrong. It is definitely that, but that’s not all there is to it. In the simplest terms, it means that every aspect of your book is in your hands. From the writing, editing, and design to the publication, printing and sales. It may sound like a lot of responsibility, but it also means complete freedom, both creatively and financially. You keep all the rights to your work, you decide how much your book is going to cost, and you decide where it’s sold. This is the fastest-growing trend in the publishing world for a reason folks!
Self-Publishing in a Nutshell
How do I publish my book?
That’s where we come in. Our goal is to make publishing a book as easy and accessible as possible. That’s why our platform gathers all of the tools you need in one place, and streamlines the process to make it as easy as possible for you to go from writer to published author.
Assuming you have a book written, the rest is pretty simple. All you need to do is create an account, start a new book project on our platform, and complete the seven publication steps. These steps will take you through the creation of your book, setting up your sales channels, as well as the printing and/or downloading of your finished book.
Once you’ve created your book, you can choose whether you want to publish and sell it, or simply print a few copies for your own private use.
The benefits of self-publishing
Self-publishing can sound pretty overwhelming if you’re new to it, but don’t worry. We’re here to make it easy for you and streamline the process so that you can take advantage of the many benefits of self-publishing your book:
- Complete creative freedom
- You retain all rights to your work
- You set your own sales price, meaning you control how much you earn per sold copy
- Our platform guides you through the process and automates the all the technical stuff
- It doesn’t cost anything to publish and start selling
- We take care of printing and shipping; all you have to do is provide the book
- You don’t have to publish or sell if you don’t want to; creating a private book is totally fine
I don’t want to publish my book, as it’s intended for private use. Is that possible?
Absolutely! You can skip the publishing step entirely and get straight to printing or downloading.
How much does it cost to publish a book?
It doesn’t cost anything to publish your book on our platform. The only things we charge for are ISBNs (if you choose to buy one) and printing books you order for yourself.
What types of book can I publish?
You can publish paperbacks, hardcovers, and ebooks on our platform. The contents of those books are of course completely up to you. We also offer a wide range of other customization options, varying from the paper type to the cover finish. You can explore these options using our pricing calculator.
