SELF-PUBLISHING IS DETAILED & TIME CONSUMING;
This is a combination that adds up to a lot of work. When you choose self-publishing, you must have a do-it-yourself mentality, and a willingness to take on all the tasks that a publisher would normally do for you; as they say, books don't sell themselves. Whether your books are on-line, in brick-and-mortar stores or made for e-readers, someone has to spend the time helping readers find your book. That takes a promotion plan and someone to carry it out. Below are some of the tasks you must do if you decide to self-publish. The list is actually longer if you get into the real nuts and bolts of the process. This is where Freebird Publishers comes into play.
Who will buy my book? Make a list!
Do I have enough original content for a book; 120 or more pages?
Can I afford to market my book at a minimum of $50 per month?
