Editor's Top 10 Buying Guide
 
AuthorHouse image
Publishing your own book is no simple feat, it takes time, dedication and skill. If you've decided to write a book, or even have one ready and waiting to go to press but you're not so keen on the usual route to publication, then Author House might be able to help.

iUniverse image
With more design options and promotional services than you can shake a stick at, iUniverse is a fully tailored book publishing solution. It offers great choice and quality, but with a price tag to match. However, if you want to get the word out about your book, with the potential to give readings and even have your masterpiece feature on TV, there really are no substitutes. Marketing seems to...

Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing image
We've all heard of – and probably shopped on – Amazon. It's world renowned, offering a huge range of products for a low price. Now you can quickly and simply publish your e-book on Amazon, selling it on one of the largest online distribution networks in the world. Although it's a simple system, and costs you nothing initially, Amazon KDP can charge significantly more than other sales sites, and...

Blurb.com image

High quality books, that's what Blurb is about. They offer a range of options to produce unique texts, not only in terms of the words on the page but also their design, even down to the kind of paper they use. This isn't the cheapest option for producing books but if you want something a bit special then it's definitely a site to consider. Let's talk about some of...

Xlibris image
Xlibris.com offers an extensive range of design and marketing options so that you can really tailor your book and its promotion to suit you. However, this doesn't come cheaply, and this is one of the most expensive online book publishing websites you'll find, with its Platinum package costing over $15,000, and even its cheaper packages costing around $500. It does offer a few “freebies”, though, so if you're happy...

Book Baby image
Whether it's digital publication or print publication you're looking for, Book Baby has several packages that provide fairly good value. It's not the cheapest site around, but it's also not one of the more expensive ones, offering 100 copies of your text for as little as $599. Of course there are other costs to consider in the whole publishing process, especially if you feel that you'd need some editorial...

Smashwords image
Smashwords offers a fairly standard editing and e-publishing service, but an extensive online network for sales, plus free ISBNs. Whilst it makes its money from taking a cut of your online sales, its rates are lower than many other such sites, so you keep a bigger share of the profits. Smashwords.com claims it is “the worlds largest indie ebook distributor”, which certainly makes it a good place to be....

Outskirts Press image
Have you ever dreamed of publishing your own book with a professionally designed cover? Not quite got the time, patience or skills to tell your story how you'd like to? Outskirts Press provide a wide range of services and package deals to help you make your publication dream a reality. But it doesn't come cheap! There's no doubting that the books and services on offer from Outskirts are of...

Lulu image
Lulu.com is a trusted site for producing high quality books and e-books. It has published over one and a half million books to date, since beginning in 2002, and provides a few options with regard to binding and length. However, it does not provide the wide range of options you'll find elsewhere, and whilst it has a marketing team for advice (which you'll need to pay for), the site...

Trident Media Group image
Trident Media Group is an impressive outfit, having published a number of big names in the literary world. But that doesn't mean they're closed to submissions from lesser known (or even unknown) writers. They have a professional team of literary agents who will be able to advise you on your book, bring it to market and make sure you get the best deals possible. They also have experience in...

The Book Patch image
The Cons (not many Pro's) for theBookPatch.com
User Review of The Book Patch by Annette Gallatin on 09 July 2015

TheBookPatch.com is basically a printer. But, and this is a BIG 'but' - they don't make any effort to check the product before it leaves their place of printing. A note in passing: I gave them a 'star' for each... (Read the full review)
