How to self-publish without getting ripped off.
A great time-saver
This guide will tell you all you need to know about choosing the best service providers for your independent publishing journey, from the largest (Amazon KDP) to your local freelance editor or designer.
Compiled by the illustrious watchdog team at the Alliance of Independent Author (ALLi), this roadmap of services will help you choose the most reputable services and companies, show you who to avoid, and most importantly how to evaluate any publishing service yourself to see if it is right for you.
You don’t need lose money by gambling on who to trust anymore; we evaluate the players, draw service comparisons and inform you what they do and don’t do, as well as what they charge.
We trawl the small print for you, scrutinise the terms and conditions, compare the rates, and through ALLi's worldwide membership of successful indie authors, check the experiences of real writers who have used these services.
Using twenty examples, you’ll learn how to do such comparisons yourself, what to look out for, and what questions to ask.
You’ll know who to choose and how much you should be paying for;
- print and eBook distributors
- formatters and editors
- cover designers
- marketing specialists
- agent-assisted self-publishing
- and many more…
We know the self-publishing path is constantly changing, which is why this guide is updated annually by ALLi’s watchdog team, so you can rest assured you’re getting up-to-date advice, recommendations and warnings.
