Helping a fellow writer!
This post should have been called “What happens after you write a book if you decide to self-publish it,” but the title would have looked funny on the blog’s homepage.
Anyway, the first thing you should know, if you want to self-publish, if you see that releasing titles via KDP, Createspace, or Smashwords is free… well you should know that it’s not really free.
Using those services is free, but ensuring that you release something that looks like a book, reads like a book, and sells to people who are not related to you costs money. How much depends only on your budget and how much you can do by yourself.
