There has NEVER been a better time to self-publish a book than today, whether printed or digital -- or both.
In 2012, 17 of Amazon's top 100 eBooks in the UK were self-published. In December of 2013, Amazon announced that fully 25% of their bestselling eBooks worldwide originated from Kindle Direct Publishing, a popular outlet for indie authors.

The goals of SPM are simple: to help self-publishing writers create better books (printed and digital), and market them more effectively; to help you avoid outlets that gouge unwary writers for large investments, or foster unrealistic expectations; to keep you abreast of the latest technologies, trends, and new methods that DIY publishers can deploy NOW for greater success in today's ever-changing industry.
In a phrase: We don't want to sell you anything except SPM itself. We aren't influenced by advertisers or underwriters. Our expert columnists are on your side, delivering even-handed reports about ALL the options for self-publishing e-Books and tree-Books. We don't favor one printer, e-publishing service or bookseller over another, except in terms of how you can get optimal results.
