Directory of self-publishing sites

Self-publishing services

Self-published authors who make a living from their pen are only a handful... but we can take comfort in the fact that many have been spotted by publishing houses following modest successes on their own scale but which presaged a trend.

More numerous are those for whom the activity brings a satisfactory extra income, usually proportional to the effort put in at all levels: content, style, presentation, promotion, animation. Obviously, with a good network and already a certain reputation, this increases the chances of success.

But the vast majority of self-published authors never sell more than a few dozen copies, enough to satisfy the ego, but no more. The job of author-publisher is not easy. Easier is to make us believe we can self-publish and charge us for each book printed, leaving us to sell them.

So, here is our directory of self-publishing sites. Many offer help, forums, various promotional services, some are true showcases while others are limited to basic publishing. But no matter the level of success, a book remains a testimony, a sum of knowledge that is always interesting to share.
