Start Your Own Press

Self-Publishing Guide
$500
Publishing under a personal name doesn't carry a lot of credibility in today's market. We recommend that you publish a book under any name that is not your own legal name. In order to do that, you will need to start a self-publishing company. For many people this can be a daunting task. The Self-Publishing Guide is a concise, step-by-step playbook that will lead you through the process of starting your own print-on-demand press — covering things like local business regulations, ISBNs, and registering with the Library of Congress. The Guide includes 1 hour live Q&A with a publishing specialist, and up to 3 hours of problem-solving support via email.
