Authorship by Owen Jones

How To Publish Your Book On Your Own


This book is for all those authors who dread publishing their books whether it be in printed or electronic format or both. I have published well over a hundred books to all the major printers and distributors, so it came as a surprise when I recently became aware that some excellent writers are put off self-publishing themselves because they find the task too confusing and difficult and so they pay others to do it for them.

I can understand this if an author wants to save time and so the purpose of this book is to help those who would like to do the job themselves, but don’t know how.

It is actually very satisfying to conceive the idea for a book, write it and then publish it yourself all on your own, and with the help of this book, that is exactly what you will be able to do.

Inside you will learn how to publish to all the major distributors like Amazon, iBookstore, Barnes and Noble, Lulu, Nook, Kindle, Smashwords and XinXii.

Sales info:

Authorship is popular in a crowed field, I think that it would be even more popular in other languages where the competition might be not so fierce.

Sample text:

This book is an aid for those people who want to write, are writing or have written a book. It is meant as a guide to writing and self-publishing. It is not meant to be a detailed guide on style, although, you may find a few tips on that too. Therefore, for the purpose of this book, we will assume that you are about to start writing, are in the process of writing or already have written an 'electronic manuscript', and want to know how to publish it yourself on your own at all the major publishers and distributors including Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Apple iBookstore, Nook, Kindle, Lulu, Smashwords and XinXii in print and ebook formats.

Electronic manuscript is an oxymoron, so we will use the word 'escript' throughout the rest of the book.

Your escript may be in a state fit for printing or it may not, but this book will help you sort that out. Besides formatting your escript, It will also help you with choosing where to publish it, how to publish it, how to get a cover for it, how to promote it, where to sell it and everything else you need to do to get people buying your book.

I have written and self-published 110+ of my own books and helped others with their publications. I now have a publishing company called 'Megan Publishing Services’, which can be found on line. Besides that, I have an escript that I finished writing a few days ago and will use my experience of getting that out into the world as my template for writing this book and I will test the process again by publishing this book..

Author review:
Isolde did a great job and was very easy to work with.
Already translated. Translated by Yvette Ngah
Author review:
Currently being proofread. Since my original evaluation, I have received numerous complaints from reviewers. The latest wrote: "I just wanted to mention that I feel your translator has not done the best of jobs. Sometimes it looks like he/she didn't even proof read it before handing it back to you. There are also many errors with the structure of the phrases, the absence/use of articles and prepositions, a poor effort to vary the use of the word "but", no effort to adjust to cultural differences and, finally, some sentences are confusing because the translator made no effort to make sense out of the message you were trying to convey. I feel it is important to mention this to you since I believe you have plans to translate some of your other works".
