Produce, Price and Promote Your Self-Published
Fiction or  Non-fiction Book and eBook - 3rd Edition

"Awesome book and enormously helpful: painstakingly lays out all the information one needs to self-publish a book, including options, pros and cons, caveats, and encouragement." -
Heidi Croot

If you are interested in this book on self-publishing, I presume you have written a book, or plan to write one, and are thinking of self-publishing it. If so, this is the place to start.

If you self-publish a non-fiction book of interest to a defined target market, or a book of fiction for people who read the genre you have produced, you can learn how to produce, price, and promote it to interested readers.

In addition, you can sell the print and Kindle version of your book from all Amazons (such as, and Amazon.UK) and you can sell your epub through Kobo and many other online book stores. 

In other words, as this book will show you, there is no reason to pay a vanity self-publishing company $3,000 or much more to produce and distribute your book.

I have sold 20,000+ books. So while I'm no E.L. James (author of the originally self-published 50 Shades of Grey), I am a happy and profitable self-published author. Perhaps you can become one too.

Paul offers solid advice in a conversational style, on everything from producing and pricing your book to tackling social networking. This is the good stuff; the secrets most authors don't cover in ordinary "how to" self-publishing books. If you want to self-publish but don't know how to get started, Step one is to buy this book!
- Heather Grace Stewart, self-published author

On the other hand
, your desire to self-publish may not be all about book sales. You may be looking to write a book to give to family and friends. You may be looking to gain the credibility that publishing a book gives a speaker or workshop leader. You may have other reasons for publishing your book.

No matter your reason, this book will answer your self-publishing questions, point you in the right direction and get you started. In short, as the title says, this book will help you produce, price and promote your self-published book.

Paul Lima has taken his tried-and-true experience and turned it into an easy-to-follow guide to publishing your own book or e-book. You're one read away from everything you need to know to join the world of self-publishing. – Leslie Garrett, award-winning journalist and author

If you plan on jumping into the world of self-publishing, you need Produce, Price, and Promote.... Whether you want your book in print or in digital format, this book has everything you need to know to get going. - Christine Peets, Captions Communications
