Self-publishing refers to an author completing the entire publishing process on their own or with their own resources. This is done without the help of a traditional publisher or publishing company.

Whether you’re writing a novel, short story collection, or nonfiction book, the self-publishing method offers you maximum creative control and the ability to pocket a greater share of the profits.
