Pitfalls of self-publishing service companies

For the IT literate some of the steps towards self-publishing can be self-taught but for a professional end-product some skills need to be outsourced.

A simple internet search will provide many self- or vanity-publishing service providers and some are one-stop-shops that will take a writer all the way from draft to Amazon bookstore. But on closer inspection and by reading the small print there is a risk of incurring a high cost, losing some control and rights to the end product, and ending up with a jack of all trades master of none service.

David Gaughran’s excellent website has a very apt blog which convinced me to consider carefully each stage of the process.
