Self-publishing my book
Self-publishing refers to the publication of a book by the writer and not a publisher.
Independent publications have always existed and have proliferated in recent years because of improved printing on demand technology and the evolution of the Internet. Amateur writers retain control over their work and the way they want to bring it on the market to potential readers.
Less known writers experience great difficulty in getting a contract with major publishers. Publishers who usually refuse to invest time and money in writers who have had no previous success. Publishers want security. Their new title should sell well. It is this lack of commitment that often frustrates the unknown writer whose talent stays hidden or simply ignored.
Create My Books and Shop My Books aim to act as a door opener for beginning writers. Publishers are more likely to visit Shop My Books to see what books are popular than taking the risk to sign contracts with unknown authors.
