    With the revolutionary strides made in eBook publishing by Amazon, Nook Press, Smashwords, and dozens of others on the rise, the ability to self-publish an eBook has become very easy. However, there are some steps to preparing your manuscript that will help set your book apart from the millions that are being offered. Hank Quense guides the reader through the publishing process in easy steps in Self Publishing a Book. Hank helps the reader determine which type of publishing house to go with or to go with self-publishing and the pros and cons of each. The book also helps you to understand the formatting involved in both eBook publishing and print book publishing. Hank discusses the ins and outs of eBook and print packages and provides a list of questions that you need to ask before making a deal with one. Self Publishing a Book also helps you set up a budget so that you won’t be hit by surprises when it comes time to use the particular services necessary to publish your book. Hank also provides links to service providers and services that you might need throughout the process. 

    Having this guide would have been quite handy when I learned this process for myself. After publishing three books, however, I still didn’t know it all and Self Publishing a Book was still a great guide to help me see my own shortcomings. It provided plenty of new ideas that I hadn't considered before. Hank Quense has developed a valuable resource for the self publisher, which is a must-read before you publish your book.
