The first book : James Wendell has a book out

by

Our congratulations to James Wendell who put together a hardcover book of his awesome photographs! It is called Eyeblink (of course, blink, blink) and has been published in December 2007 by Blurb, a self publishing house.

In 1999, the Money section of CNN released the article Self-publishing for profit  in which ‘experts estimated self-publishing will cost you anywhere from $12,000 to $30,000 — depending on the length and complexity of your book. It’s also more expensive if your copy requires extensive editing, and you select a hard cover rather than soft’. 

However, modern day e-publishing of ebooks — which started with Lulu, if I remember correctly — is very inexpensive. Blurb, which published James’ book, claims one can get a bookstore quality book published for as low as $12.95 in approximately 7 to 10 business days! That does not involve design, layout, proofing or editing of your book — this part is entirely up to you and the software you download from Blurb or Lulu.

Here are few links to sites which offer a glance at the world of e-publishing, self publishing, sales, royalties, things to watch for etc. :
