is self publishing a business? And should it be treated as such? The answer is a resounding: YES! Any author will want to capitalize on their authorly endeavors by maximizing their profit margin.
Your profit starts dwindling when companies charge up-front fees to publish your book.
Be careful! Many promises are made to put your book on the shelves of Brick and Mortar Bookstores. Book returns are plentiful since most of these books are on a consignment basis. And many distributors only put your book in a catalogue so when someone enters the bookstore looking for your book they can order it at the counter.
