One question we are always asked is ‘ what costs are there with self-publishing a book?’ Well, the truth is that the costs depend on you and what you are happy to do yourself, and what quality you want your book to be.
If you are a writer, then it is likely you want to write your own book. Whatever this may be about, you will always think that your writing is always the best it could be. But, you may want to consider hiring an editor, as they will be able to proofread your work before publication. This is one cost you may encounter.
Another cost that may need to be considered is whether you need an illustrator. Not everyone who writes a book will want fancy illustrations. But some people may need the help, especially those writing children’s books. This is likely to be the most expensive cost you will face as illustrations do take a lot of time to create.
