Authors: Want to know how to assemble the perfect self-publishing team for you, which services are reputable and which to avoid? This guide has the answers.
Choose the Best Self-Publishing Services is a comprehensive guide to hiring services across the seven stages of the publishing process: editorial, design, production, distribution, marketing, promotion and rights licensing.
Drawing on the experience of the Alliance of Independent Authors (ALLi)’s watchdog desk, it sources industry data from a thousands-strong community of professional authors working every day on the publishing front line.
The book assesses companies that sell publishing tools and services against a code of standards for ethics and excellence. It takes an individualist and creative approach, encouraging you to think critically and choose the best self-publishing partners for your business, covering everyone from large players like Amazon KDP and Apple Books to your local freelance editors and designers.
In easy-to-understand chunks, you will learn:
- What collaborators you need to produce high-quality books
- When and what to outsource, and how much it should cost
- Processes to assess any tool or service before you pay
- The criteria you need to assess any service for yourself
- The steps you can take to recover if you’ve fallen for a scam
The principles and practices outlined in this book work across all genres—fiction, nonfiction, and poetry—and will empower you to build a strong publishing team, produce better books, and sell more copies around the world.
