The Affordable Side of Self-Publishing

Have you ever thought of publishing a book?

I can tell you that from idea to implementation, publishing a book can be an expensive venture, especially if you are not careful. You are not just parting away with your precious time, but also with your hard-earned money. So it becomes important to side with self-publishing options that make this whole process affordable for you.

Self-publishing is entrepreneurship, and should not cost a lot of money to start-up. As a matter of fact, writing a book will weigh down on your time. But marketing, designing and selling your book requires some capital, which if you are not careful, could leave a big hole in your pocket.

So what can you do to control this cost and make the process affordable, yet highly professional?

Hire services from a self-publishing company.

It really is as simple as that. For example, if you invest in any of the affordable self-publishing packages offered by Outskirts Press, you could save a ton of money on creating a professional book.

Wouldn’t that be nice? I, for one, would like to finish a book without a huge debt on my shoulders. This way, all the money I earn from selling my work will go straight into my pocket, rather than in the pockets of different publishing houses.

Moreover, there’s an icing on the cake!

When it comes to self-publishing, using more than one self-publishing services can reduce the quality of the final product, while increasing your liability towards different publishing houses. So stick with one package that can cater for all your self-publishing needs.

So do you want to self-publish at an affordable price? 

Simply Writing A Book Is Not Enough

I have a story to tell, and if I put my mind to it, I can write a book about my story.

The fact is, so can you!

But does that make me or you capable of publishing?

Maybe so.

But simply writing a book is not enough. Most of us with a traditional typewriter or computer and persistence could do that. Drafting and editing aside, there are other aspects of publishing that are important to consider.

Interestingly, self-publishing makes these ‘other’ aspects much easier than the traditional route.

The biggest stumbling block for many self-publishers is the pricing, marketing and publicity of their finished work. How do you price a book?

Many authors do it differently – they price their book based on the number of potential sales, the time they put into the product and often the demand on their work. Whatever price you go with, you have to keep the target market in mind, can they afford the book? Self-publishing help such as that offered by Outskirts Press can really help you drill down on a price.

What about the marketing and publicity?

As writers, most of us cannot handle the marketing and promotion of our finished book by ourselves. After all, writers are not really marketers. So what can you do?

Get expert help. Outskirts Press offers professional (and often promotional) marketing packages that can give your book a useful marketing facelift. By adding these modules to your self-publishing package, you will have an awesome final product.

So, are you ready to self-publish yet?
