Getting started self-publishing
Hi, I’m Anthony Puttee. I’m the founder of the Self-publishing Lab. If you’re a new fish entering the publishing ocean, this page is for you! It contains the information you need to get you up and running on your self-publishing journey.
First, we avoid the pitfalls
In the world today, there are several ways to self-publish your book. Technology and change has brought new opportunities for writers to build brands and sell books, but now writers and authors are more confused than ever about how to get a book published.
Not only that, there are countless horror stories of authors being ripped off by vanity self publishing companies that cost the earth and deliver a poor quality book product that doesn’t sell. We’ve helped many authors get back on track, after dealing with one of these companies and I want you to avoid this situation all together and get started on the right track.
You’re reading this because you want to avoid all that, and you can, starting now.
The Self-publish using the Independent Publishing Method
Every day at the Self-publishing Lab we help authors self-publish using the Independent Publishing Method,. This method allows authors to take advantage of having true flexibility, all the profit, complete control and creativity on how to prepare, produce and publish a quality book to readers around the world, by becoming the author and publisher in one.
There’s no need to hand over control and the profit to a third-party publishing company.
Here’s the big picture view.
This picture helps provide the overall process of how to self-publish your book using this method, so you get a quick picture what you’re aiming for. We help authors with the whole process.
The benefits of the Independent Publishing Method are:
- YOU maintain creative control on how your book looks
- YOU keep the profit, without any other middle men dipping their hands in your pocket
- YOU can choose the price of your books and the flexibility to change them at will
- YOU can print books for yourself or have them distributed for you, your way
- YOU’LL have the flexibility to implement new methods of promotion without anyone holding you back
- YOU can control how to build your author brand and build a loyal fan base.
