''Mark Levine does his homework, and even better, shares it. With meticulous research and easy-to-follow charts, Levine compares the prices and options for various publishing pathways. Expanding on earlier editions, he walks writers through the DIY process with CreateSpace, Ingram, and Smashwords. Levine has written a useful, no-nonsense guide that will save writers tons of money and hours of frustration.'' --Helen Sedwick, author of Self-Publisher's Legal Handbook: The Step-by-Step Guide to the Legal Issues of Self-Publishing

to any author who is considering self-publishing. . . . It's a reality check and an education for the savvy author.'' --Patricia Fry, executive director of Small Publishers, Artists, and Writers Network (SPAWN)
''Invaluable . . . Levine's ten years of experience, first as an author, then as a publishing company CEO, provide him with an understanding of the needs of authors, combined with an insight into the publishing industry, top to bottom.'' --Mick Rooney, The Independent Publishing Magazine
