    • Self Publishing - IntroductionStruan, self-published by Richard BrownWriteWords expert Richard Brown shares his experiences in the world of self-publishingAre you, for whatever reason, considering publishing your own work?Unfortunately, some vanity publishers have tarnished the idea of self-originated publication;many of them notoriously over-charge and under-promote. No doubt there are honourableexceptions but the risks of paying someone to produce your books are very high.We at WriteWords advocate the utmost caution in connection with companies which demandmoney for publishing books.However, doing the entire thing yourself is a completely different matter � you are in completecontrol. I knew personally one writer, alas now dead, who self-published his first novel and whothen went on, several novels later, to win the Booker Prize. There are stories a-plenty aboutothers who started by investing in their own talent and who eventually established seriousliterary reputations. Self-publication is not at all disreputable. It�s your money and your productand you can do as you wish.I write as someone who has self-published, with an entirely satisfactory outcome. I have alsoseveral times acted as publisher for a client. This article gives the benefit of my experience. Italso offers advice and cost guidelines from a printing company with which I have worked onseveral projects and which I can thoroughly recommend.
