Question about self published book.

Postby roda havet » Sun May 29, 2016 5:01 pm

I have a question about self publishing a book. I have compiled my poems into a book. There is around 60 poems along with a dedication page and table of contents; which makes around 47 pages. So, my question is: Does anyone know about how much the price should be set for something like that? I've researched it myself but it seems every book is different. I have found some with less pages than mine that are nine dollars and others about a dollar. I also wanted to know does a self published book need a copy write page? :)

Self-published. If only electronically, 99¢. If you publish with Smashwords, they furnish the copyright for free. Amazon has its own system. You mean "copyright", right, not "copy write", and you don't need a whole page for a copyright notice.

Lulu is quite decent, for what it is. I've used it in the past for one of my books, and the quality of the printed copies is reasonably good. You might need a couple of iterations of experimenting with fonts and cover graphics before you're happy with it, but overall it's pretty much WYSIWYG.

The Swearingen family history was published by Lulu, and it is of good quality. CreateSpace is probably cheaper, though, for a small book of poetry.
