Self-Publishing Advice
8/7/2012 12:09:15 PM

What is your budget?

In these austere times itís important to remember that sending off a final draft manuscript to an agent or publisher, or marketing a self-published book, costs real money because the whole process can be, and is, a very costly exercise.

Recouping legitimate costs for publishing, printing, binding, stationery and postage can be horrendous, as is supplying free books to agents, publishers, local media, book stores, supermarket chains and Amazon. It all adds up and can only be recouped from book sales or a publishing deal.

So be careful who you send a manuscript to and donít be in too much of a hurry to give your book away for free because remember - itís all coming out of your royalties.
