I just read about a company charging almost $1000 for authors to become self published. Here are the steps you need so you can publish without spending a dime.
1. Write your book.
2. Edit your book.
3.find a friend to edit your book.
4. Make a book cover. Or ask someone to.
5. Go to CreateSpace and download the template of the size of book you want.
6. Format your book in the template.
7. Publish your book!
This is how I did it. Don't waste your money on companies that would do the same thing.
If you can write a book on your own, you can publish it too.
If you get stuck at any point in the process, I'm here to help.
