Choosing the right path:
There is a wealth of information on self-publishing —
some valuable, some not so much. Research self-publishing platforms to determine which one is right for you. You may find that more than one is appropriate, especially if you hope to sell your books
online and in brick-and-mortar stores. You’ll find that books published by some
online companies (like Amazon’s CreateSpace) are sold only on their sites.
Other publishers (like Lightning Source/Ingram) are equipped to place your book in brick-and-mortar stores. Some bookstores
even offer consignment options.
