There are a lot of good online companies out there to help you publish your own book. One of the first ones that comes to mind is Lulu.com. With their print on demand or POD system you can publish your book for little and nothing. You really decide on the amount you want to spend by choosing one of their publishing packages. Don’t forget that there must be some effective marketing strategy behind the sale of the book especially if you’re publishing for the first time, and wipe the get-rich-quick idea from your mind if you happen to believe that just by publishing your book a lot of money will be flowing your way. As a matter of fact, I’ve been reading about this lately: that there are quite few newcomers to the online world who think that by having their book published they’ll automatically get money. I don’t know where this idea came from because there are a lot of authors out there who know how hard it is to sell a book. Maybe there are some of them who have had some luck by getting on a talk show or a news program or some good publicity from some of their publishing agent and have made some money out of it. However, this is not always the case and quite a few of us suffer after having the book published because we don’t have the economic possibility to absorb the shock of all the mistakes we might run into when we publish our own book.
Amazon’s CreateSpace is another of these publishing companies that comes to mind. You can publish your manuscript with them practically on the same basis as Lulu.com. They’ll charge you for the publication of the book, together with shipping and handling, if you know how to upload your manuscript with the front pages and the front and back covers. All you have to do is sign up with them and make your decision whether to take one of their publishing packages or the do-it-yourself option. If you really want to get published, CreateSpace is a great way to go about doing it.
Google’s Partner Program is also high up on my list of those who can help you publish your own book. Like the others, they have several ways of getting your book published physically or electronically. There are also many packages to help you market the book and as one of the biggest search engines they can help you brainstorm your keywords and find the right niche for your book. Of course all of this is for a price. Smashwords.com is another one that can help you get your book out there. They'll help you convert your document, once it is uploaded to their platform, into several different formats at no cost at all. And just like the KDP they won't charge you a thing until you sell a copy from their site.
There are several other professional services such as mashable.com, iuniverse, blurb.com, sun-fly-printing.com, oprah.com, pandamian.com, pothi.com and a host of other companies that can help you publish your own book in an inexpensive way. Most of them are using the POD system and can easily store your book and publish it when there’s an order. This print on demand arrangement has been very successful because it saves you a lot of money which you’d have to spend on printing, insurance, shipping and handling and a few other items that must be taken into account in order to publish your own book. If you’re only interested in printing the book, there are hundreds of them who’ll do it for you at very low price. This of course is without any other of their publishing services and you’ll have to upload all the information to their system.
