Why Authors Should Be Wary of Self-Publishing Packages, and What to Watch For - Publishing services for self publishing authors and businesses - Deepstash

How to avoid publishing packages traps from small-presses

  1. Evaluate options based on distribution reach, not book production values.
  2. Beware of creativity upgrades .
  3. Buy only what you need . Don’t assume the next level up will pay for itself with additional book sales, or a better-looking book.
  4. Ignore their online store and free copies of books . Those are not reasons enough to use that company.
  5. A word about the ISBN. Put simply: if someone gives you the ISBN as part of the publishing package, their name shows as the publisher. That’s not a big deal legally, and you may not care who the publisher is.
