Is it better to self-publish a book through Amazon using CreateSpace or to work through a publisher?
Try EpicPress based in Birmingham in the UK. Cost effective and helpful.
Before you Spend/Waste any money on Self Publishing I urge you to take a look at www.Lulu.com
If you want to talkabout it go to my profile and contact me. Also you may want to look through my hubs on the pit falls of Self Publishing.
My advice is working through an agent who can solicit your work more efficiently than you ever could. Just make sure you do you homework on the people you're sending your manuscript out to.
I believe it depends on how well you can market yourself and your work. If you self-publish, then the marketing all falls on your shoulders. There are ways of doing this effectively, but it takes a good amount of time investment to do so.
The positive aspect of CreateSpace, is that your upfront costs are very negligible. I've seen many self publishing sites that want you to fork out over $1,000 before you even see a printed product. It might also be worth pointing out that CreateSpace is owned by Amazon.
Whichever way you choose, good luck!
