Self Publishing
DirectToPOD

What is it?

Direct to POD is a program developed by SelfPublishing.com for individual authors who prefer to choose a guided Publishing "Package" to the traditional a-la-carte method of SelfPublishing.com. Unlike the "Pay-to-be-Published" publishers, like Author House and IUniverse, we do not have inflated a-la-carte prices just so we can make it look like we're giving you a big discount if you buy one of our packages. If you don't mind the extra work, our a-la-carte self-guided services will always be the most economical way to self-publish your book. Whether you chose the guided or self-directed approach, YOU will:

FIRST BOOK Cost Approach

The Direct to POD approach concentrates on helping the author get to the point that printed copies can be ordered. The old saying printers use: "the first book costs a lot but they get pretty cheap after that". The packages offered are all based on the cost of the first book. Once the author/publisher has received that first copy, they will be free to order 100, 1000 or 1,000,000. Remember... as with all SelfPublishing.com programs... you're the boss.

There are basically two different price points for this service... $1495 and $1895.
