1.) Self Publishing Education

Step one of the self publishing process

In entering the world of self publishing you enter virtual minefield of misinformation dominated by the vanity press that prey on the naivety of the typical self publisher. Ignorance is NOT bliss. Education is the key. You wouldn?t think of becoming a book printer without first learning about book printing. Book Publishing is no different. Our Book Publishing Basics Program is one of the most comprehensive publishing education programs currently being offered to the self publisher. Remember, Knowledge is Power. Your self publishing education starts here.


Avoid The Vanity Press Trap

Avoiding the Vanity Press Trap

Self publishing implies that “you” are the “publisher”. Ownership of the ISBN determines who the publisher is. If you did not buy your ISBN’s directly from RR Bowker, you do not own it. If you do not own the ISBN, you are NOT a self publisher, nor are you self publishing.
