What is self-publishing?
Get Published Now
Get Published Now is Lettertec's comprehensive publishing guidebook. It takes you through all aspects of publishing, including editing, design, printing, marketing, and how to sell your books.
why should you
Here are seven reasons why self-publishing may be perfect for you
Your book – the way you want it
Your book is a reflection of you the writer. Self-publishing gives you complete control over the direction of your book. The decisions are exclusively yours and are not limited by third-parties with interests and intentions that differ from your own.
Protecting your rights as an author
As a self-publisher, you own the rights to your book. If you use a traditional publishing house, they own the rights. They may for example decide to stop printing and distributing your book, preventing you from printing additional copies until you purchase the rights back. We simply produce your book, you retain all the rights.
Short print runs
You may only require 50 or 100 copies of your book. With the high-tech, modern print technology that we have, we can provide you with this unique service.
Testing the market
Because your book may be for a niche or specialised interest, self-publishing can be a great way of ‘testing’ the market. A small amount of printed books can for example serve as an indication of how successful a larger quantity of books would be. Some authors request ‘review copies’ for them to present to publishing houses.
A niche market
The book may appeal to a niche or specialised market (e.g. the history of your local sports club) and therefore may not be of interest to a large publishing house.
Going through a publishing company usually takes much longer, with authors having to wait their turn in long publishing catalogues. Choose to self-publish with us however and your book can be ready for the book stores and online within just four weeks of us receiving your print-read files.
We store your book digitally, which means we can reprint it for you at any time in the future if you wish.
