The Self-Publishing Process: Step-by-Step

If you’re a new author looking to self-publish your first book, you may feel overwhelmed with the process. This is a natural feeling, especially when it’s your first time going through the process. At EABooks Publishing, we’re here to help you share your God-given message with the world, partnering with you every step of the way to get your book published. Here’s a breakdown of the steps you’ll need to take to self-publish your book.  

 

Finish Your Manuscript  

The first step of publishing your book is to finish your manuscript and get it ready for editing. If you need help articulating your vision into a completed piece, we offer developmental editing to help you create your story and shape it into a finished work of art. 

 

Find a Self-Publishing Partner 

Once your manuscript is completed, it’s time to prepare it for self-publishing. Many companies offer various services related to editing, distributing, and marketing your book, so you’ll want to compare companies to ensure they meet your needs. EABooks is your all-in-one self-publishing partner that can help you through the entire publishing process, from editing to distributing to marketing. The benefit of self-publishing is that you have more control over your book than traditional publishing and you keep more profits. When you self-publish your book with EABooks, you’ll pay a fee for our services, but you get to keep 100% of the profits from each book you sell.

Editing  

Editing is an essential part of the publishing process. This is where the magic happens! It’s critical to find a high-quality, experienced, honest, and reliable editor who will work with you to make your book the best it can be, not simply scan for typos. Find an editor that is familiar with your genre and intended audience. Together, you will revise and update your manuscript. We offer two types of editing for completed manuscripts. Partnership editing allows you to work with your editor as they critique your story and offer suggestions for improvement. You’re free to take the editor’s advice and adjust as you deem fit. Relaxed editing provides a done-for-you service where one of our highly-qualified editors makes the changes for you and keeps your voice while applying the edits. We offer a free sample edit so there is no cost until you decide we’ve partnered you with the right editor. 

 

Distribution  

Where will you sell your book? It’s one of the most important questions you’ll need to answer when self-publishing. We’ll work with you to choose the best distribution options based on your genre and intended audience. Whether you want to offer paperback and hardcover versions or format it for digital publishing, we’ll help you ensure your book looks great everywhere. You’ll also want to consider printing options, such as print-on-demand services and traditional printing. We also offer Amazon-focused publishing packages, which optimize your book listing for Amazon search results. View our self-publishing packages.  

 

Marketing 

Your book is published—now it’s time to let people know about it! Our marketing packages allow you to go beyond marketing to your family and friends and help you reach the most interested readers where they are. With optimized websites, emails, and lead magnets, we’ll help you leverage the power of digital marketing to reach them. We also offer media pitching and marketing master classes to ensure you have all the skills to market your book successfully.
