into print and your works published and into the hands of children?

affordable - even for authors on a budget.
You can compose, publish and sell your books online - even in downloadable format - for very little cost up
front. You just need to know which tools to use.
Trying to figure out how to get your self published books into book stores? Here's how to do it:

walk you through the steps of self-publishing your own books and then selling them through online bookstores

Another example is LuLu. You can design your book right on
their site - from book binding to paper weight to cover design (they have a cool cover creator!). You don't
need to know anything about formatting either, because they take care of that too.
