Her new ebook Do-It-YourSelf-Publishing sets forth a step-by-step blueprint for doing your own publishing, from starting the business, to creating and publishing print and ebooks, to distribution and marketing.
“Many authors, frustrated with their inability to find a publisher, look into ‘self-publishing’ companies and are appalled at what they charge,” says Lau. “Do-It-YourSelf-Publishing explains what the new printing and ebook technologies mean in terms of options for authors who are willing and able to ‘do it all themselves.’”
Lau recommends her book to any author who is considering publishing his or her own works. “My book will help you decide if this approach is right for you, and suggest valuable resources that will enable you to do everything it takes to be your own publisher. From estimating costs to finding out the skills you need and how to acquire them, I share everything I learned along the way to finding a more enjoyable and profitable way to sell my books—by publishing them myself.”
Do-It-YourSelf-Publishing is available from Living Beyond Reality Press and online ebook retailers including Amazon. 50 pages in Adobe Reader (pdf) format, with color illustrations, the book retails for $2.99. For complete information visit www.dianalaurence.com/diyp.html.
