Top Author Services

There is an incredble amount of work that goes into the self-publishing of a book. Once you take the plunge, you often get caught in a whirlwind of the unknown and it is a difficult to look back. From choosing cover art, to the right editor, to the most effective marketing tactics, it can all become a daunting task. There are numerous capable freeland professionals in the market to help you in any area you struggle in. I have examined some author services I think are worthy to mention and that I believe can ease our journey to success in self-publishing. Below you will find a list of just a few sites recieving the highest reviews - and no one from this list demands an exclusivety contract from you!

Lulu - quickest to publish with average wait time of 1-3 weeks, offers POD (print-on-demand) services, cover design help, and many marketing strategies

CreateSpace - self set royalties, second quickest to publish with a wait time of 2-4 weeks, no hard copy publishing option

Author House - best rated in help and support, over 60,000 titles in print

Outskirts Press - ghost writing option available, self set royalties

iUniverse- best rated in book selling reach and additional paid services, and in third place for total titles in print

Llumina Press - offers the highest amount of free author copies (10)! Great for promoting your novel with free contest give-aways, highly rated for help and support

I would love to hear your thoughts on my list and even more so from those who have used the above services!
