You don’t have to be a Shakespeare or Stephen King to be an author these days and you don’t have to battle with nasty publishers to get your book out there either.

If you are self-publishing then you can publish your book right now without any other effort. Go to CreateSpace (owned by Amazon), check the box that you want to be both paperback and Kindle, pick a cover, upload your manuscript, and in a few days you will be published on Amazon and people can start buying your book.  Here’s a step by step guide:

Follow these steps below, and you will have self-published your own book by the end of today.

  1. Step 1: Visit and Sign In or Sign Up. …
  2. Step 2: Add New Title From Your KDP Dashboard. …
  3. Step 3: Enroll in KDP Select. …
  4. Step 4: Enter Your Book Title and Subtitle. …
  5. Step 5: Enter Your Book Description.

You don’t pay for book printing – you simply collect a commission whenever it sells. You’re in charge of the price and associated commission as well. When you upload your book, Amazon tells you what their costs are — $2.50 for example, for a 150-page book. From there you can price your book at anything higher, say $9.

Once your book is published your next step is to market it. It’s important to draft up a marketing plan before you hit publish so you are already prepared for this stage. Now’s the time to get out your plan and get your book out there!
