Overview

The industry of self-publishing has seen enormous change in the past decade. The internet and online retailing via Amazon and Barnes & Noble has given self-published authors access to readers they were previously denied under the old model of publishing. Print-on-demand via companies such as CreateSpace and Lightning Source not only makes self-publishing as a business venture financially possible, it also provides authors with access to distribution to book retailers.

CreateSpace and Lightning Source are the two biggest names in the print-on-demand industry and choosing which of the two companies to use can be a difficult decision, especially for a first time author. Selecting a Print-on-Demand Company: Comparing CreateSpace and Lightning Source for POD Self-Publishing is meant to clarify the advantages and disadvantages of using either company in a clear and easy to understand manner.

By gathering all of the information in one place and organizing it, this book is a valuable tool in the decision making process of selecting a POD service to self-publish and distribute a book.
