The Globe & Mail has an informative article on self-publishing. If you’re considering self-publishing, read this article first.
No, it’s not derogatory or designed to convince you not to go that route. It’s a pretty unbiased look at what you need to know before you make a decision.
The author, Jack Kapica, compares two big self-publishing companies, Lulu and WWAOW, stating what each does – and doesn’t do. Even what they charge for their services. And he goes into what you, the author, will have to do – and what you may not be able to accomplish as a self-pubbed author.
Before you get carried away by all the hype about self-publishing, read this article. You may decide it’s for you – and Kapica gives you some examples where it may be – but you may also decide it won’t get you where you want to go.
