Self-publishing a book is one way to get your book on the market. There are however a few things you must never do when self-publishing your book. Some of these include:
You should not design the cover for your book yourself. Unless you are extremely talented in illustrations. A self-designed book cover can be spotted from a mile away and put people off purchasing your book.
You should also not try to make your book look unique by using a different font. Book publishers tend to use the same fonts as they are easy to read. You should follow suit or your book will stand out for the wrong reasons.
Finally, you should never do it all on your own. Writing your book on your own is perfect. But you should encourage others to read your book before publishing as they may see mistakes you would never notice.
