Comment to 'Real-time Self-publishing Experience'
  • I am about to self-publish my first novel through Ingham Sparks. I took the easy and unfortunately most expensive route. I paid for a book cover designer and now am paying a local publishing company to organise everything, including marketing. I can’t imagine I will ever re-coup my costs but I’m working full time and wanted to save a lot of hassle. I stress, it’s not cheap. I’m looking at about $3200 Australian dollars at a minimum but I will be getting a professional and beautiful product. If you have the time, do the formatting yourself.

    • The crowd below do it for about 650 pounds.

      • Yes I've come across them. I discovered them a little late for my first book, and when I made a speculative enquiry the lead times were too long. But then £650 equates to $860, and by the time you add in social media banners (Newsletter, FB etc.) and material for FB Ads they end up around the same price point.

        • Yeah, good headline price they have. Hadn't thought about those other points.
