Self-publishing: options for authors and translators

In this episode, Eve and Corinne discuss tools, platforms and methods for self-publishing your own books or books you’ve translated. We delve into the entire book creation and production process, including how to compose the text of your book, design the interior, design the cover, choose a print-on-demand platform and then market your book. This information is drawn from our experiences self-publishing our own books, as discussed in our previous Book Launch episode.

  2. Eve and Corinne, very good self publishing tips. Thank you. I believe that Amazon Create Space, like Lulu, also sells directly to the author below the regular sales price.
