How To Self-Publish A Book: Self-Publishing Services and Awards Rated

If you’d like help in self-publishing your book, you need to beware. There are many services out there but writers must make their self-publishing choices in an environment where the same service can cost $500 or $15,000 depending on where you shop and where one large operation traps unwary writers into thinking their book is being “published,” while in reality it is only being printed or set up as an ebook. This is production, not publishing. Production is just one of the seven stages in the publishing process (see above).

Tyro self-publishers can easily fall victim to literary fraud, scams, and misleading practices. So here we offer ratings of self-publishing services and ratings of author contests and awards through ALLi’s Watchdog Desk.
