Overview

There is a boom today in self-publishing, as new technologies make it increasingly possible for writers to bypass conventional publishers and produce books independently.

Equally important, independent publishers are increasingly bypassing traditional publishing industry channels (mostly chain stores and libraries) in favor of marketing directly to readers, and through retailers whose product lines are compatible with the subjects of their books. These "non-traditional" markets are ten times more numerous, easier to target, and more profitable.

As featured coast-to-coast on the popular "Ask Heloise" radio program, U-Publish.com is a concise guide to self-publishing, using new technologies to lower costs and reach readers more directly. It is more than a book -- a Web site of the same name with regular updates and a free monthly e-mail bulletin are integral features that make it a "living book" of lasting value to anyone who wants to publish independently.
