What is self PublishingAbout self-publication
So what does self-publication really mean?
Self publishing is differently definded, according to who you ask. Writers working in conventional publishing companies say that those who are paying for their editorial work, formats or covers are self-publishers. It is a tradition that the publication is only carried by the publishing house. This often rules out the possibility of providing advertising support.
Literally, self-publication takes place when an editor takes over the whole publishing lifecycle, which includes print, sales and market. The performance of all detail during the self-publishing lifecycle by the writer is also referred to as self-publishing. Authors either have the ability to perform the publishing stage, such as publishing page sizing, or they employ specialists to finalize the publishing for them.
Writers gain their own self-publishing experiences instead of buying the service of a business. Publishing independently demands in-depth sector expertise, sophisticated managerial abilities and full dedication to the whole publishing lifecycle. A self-published publication is also self-published. After all, the writer finances most of the publication processes.
Many self-publishers are available to writers who want to make themselves public. Several self-publishers provide publishing service for writers who cannot or do not want to get to grips with the detail of the publishing proces. If this is the case, the writer will pay the self-publisher to carry out the publication for him.

A number of self-publishers are only intended to have the books published, while others imitate conventional publishing companies that offer a full range of publishing and promotional work. Research is the quintessential factor in selecting a self-publisher.
