You can chose to print your book or publish it digital. If you want to reach a larger population, you can consider publishing your book both ways. After you figure out the population you are writing for, you will need to explore the advantages and disadvantages of self-publication and publishing companies. While it is recommended that either avenue you choose, you have a proofreader. Printed books are available for you to buy at books stores, Walmart, Target, and other retail stores. E-books can be obtain electronically and can be read on a computer, tablet, phone, or other electronics. Some avenues of publication you pay for out of pocket and upfront. Other avenues are free upfront and a portion of the profits made from sells of your book pays the publisher.

Traditional Publishing

If you don’t want to take on all the work by yourself, there are publishing companies that you can reach out to and get assistance.

Ways Of Marketing.

Word of mouth and support of family and friends can go a long way when you get started. If you use social media, it can serve as a platform for marketing your book.

It is important to recognize the support given to others when you share your story. There are multiple ways that you can share your story and writing a book is one way to accomplish that. If you are considering writing a book, you should do research to gain knowledge about the different avenues and requirements of each. When you have an understanding of what your goals are and you are knowledgeable about the avenues of obtaining your goals, the process is easier.

Some avenues you pay for out of pocket and upfront and some avenues are free or you pay from the profits made from selling your publication.
