As a writer, I like to pass along information to my fellow writers whenever possible.  So this blog is for anyone who is considering self publishing a book.  I can’t advise you on which conmpany to use but I can warn you about a company you may not want to use.  Xlibris.  This print-on-demand company charges far too much for what little service they offer.  Their idea of marketing was to place one of my boojs on a shelf in a room full of shelves at the annual Library Conference in DC, with the hope that someone would see it. Further more, they set the prices of their books too high (15.99 for a 72 page paperback).   So google Xlibris and read the complaints against them, and choose a different company.
