The cost of self-publishing a new book in now very affordable
Long gone are the days of wishing and hoping to publish a book. There is no need at all to beg literary agents and publishers today. You can also forget about paying thousands of dollars for vanity publishing.
Self-publishing gives authors the freedom to publish at any time. But with this comes the responsibility of publishing a quality book.
Yes, we all know that it is possible to self-publish for free, and many authors take this route. Publishing an ebook on Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing is very easy. All it needs is a Word document file and a cover image and that’s it.
That’s why there are millions of ebooks available on Kindle, and Kindle Unlimited. But so many of these quick and dirty ebooks are of very poor quality. All but a few find a steady stream of loyal book buyers.
Producing any quality product and bringing it to market costs money. So if you are planning to publish your book soon, quality should be your top priority.
