Question by otulissa3: The choice of Self publishing?
I would really like to publish my book and a friend of mine recommended slef-publishing. I received a book form Infinity Publishing and was curious if anyone has had any experience with them.
If you have can you tell me a bit about it and if they deliver like they claim to? Also if you can recommend other ways of self publishing I’d me happy to know, thank you.
Answer by e.l
Self-publishing should never be recommended.
Only self-publish if you only want copies for yourselves and friends. Self-published books cannot generally be stocked in bookstores, so it is unlikely you will sell many copies at all (by that I mean, under 10 copies would be likely).
To confirm, that specific publisher is not recommended.
Infinity Publishing: Not recommended. A vanity publisher located in Pennsylvania and affiliated with Spoken Books Publishing. “With our Author-Originated Book Publishing method authors retain all rights to their work, enjoy royalties paid monthly, benefit from expansive distribution outlets, and enjoy the convenience of our generous bookstore return policy. Find out how our author-friendly book publishing method can take you from un-published writer to published author.”
EDIT: Christ, ‘Damon’, you confused me then – I saw the ‘contact symbol’ and thought: ‘I cannot remember adding that user’ @_@
