Adventures in Self-Republishing is a guide for authors who want to revive out of print books by republishing them in print or electronically. It describes options that depend on the format of the book, including whether or not it includes illustrations, how elaborate the type formatting is, and its use of reference citations. It explains the important differences among the major approaches to self-publishing: on paper using print on demand technology, and electronically using either PDF format or e-reader formats used by e-book readers. It explains the advantages and disadvantages of each republishing format for various types of books. The author speaks from experience in having learned the hard way what works and what doesn't. He also describes the types of services available to help authors republish, and the trade-offs involved.
