In Is Self-Publishing for You, Libi Astaire guides aspiring authors through the maze of publishing, whether traditional publishing or self publishing. While she promises success to no one, she allows writers to come to a solid understanding of what to suspect.
Astare knows, in part from personal experience, that it’s not just a matter of attaching the Word document to an email, shipping it off to the publisher and immediately appearing on the New York Times Bestseller list.
In fact, she has no problems telling writers that selling 500 copies of their book could be considered success.
The best part is that this is not just a read it once, put it down, kind of book. Instead it will be handy to have around as a resource when the next manuscript is ready.
Astaire gives writers all the options to allow them to make an informed decision regarding which route to pursue towards publishing their book.
Any writer considering self-publishing would benefit from reading this book first.
I received an electronic copy of this book from Story Cartel in exchange for an honest review. I recieved no other compenstation.
