Dan Poynter's Self Publishing Manual is the book that started the self-publishing revolution. Dan always believed that you can be in print. You can have a book you will be proud of. You can make it a successful seller. Most importantly, you can afford it! More effectively and successfully than any other book, this book has turned writers with an idea into successful authors with books. Real books. Books to be proud of. How? By providing solid, usable information in clear, concise, readable language. By covering every stage of the process from putting ideas into words and words into print, and print into books and books into the hands of readers. This is not the stuff of theory, it is the product of hard-earned experience written by a man who walked, then ran the path to success. More than 120 times. Dan Poynter is the acknowledged expert in the field of publishing. He didn't get there by self-promotion, he got there by producing measurable results for countless authors who were turned down by or chose to turn away from established publishers. From the very first edition, through this 16th edition, Dan Poynter's Self-Publishing Manual delivered insider secrets for creating a solid foundation in self-publishing. Each subsequent edition was updated to cover the latest developments in the technology and realities of the publishing industry. This is your single most important resource; it will lead you to publishing success.
