So you have an idea for a great book? In a world where you need to establish yourself as an author, your first step would be to find a literary agent that could shop your book to the publishers.
However, there is a way to test run your book or just continue as a self-published Author.
Createspace.com offers their services to budding Authors with very economical avenues.
Yes, we did put the word “free” in the title. Yes, it is certainly free, and fairly easy. Especially if you add your text and book cover design yourself. However, there are options to acquire professional editing and design services at very reasonable prices. The support services are excellent as well. While the dashboard may look a little overwhelming until you learn where everything is, have no fear. Support is just a phone call away to help you find your way around and add your book’s content.
Once your book is ready to publish, you’ll be able to order copies for literally a few dollars each, then add your profit on top to sell them to interested readers. The books look professional, just as much as any book on the retailer’s shelf, as long as your book cover design is quality too.
Createspace.com is an Amazon company and also provides your book free listings in other online storefronts for free as well as a venue to prepare your book for upload and purchase as a Kindle product.
