How to self-publish a book?

Introducing BookLife - Our new focus on self-publishing

Self-publishing is booming, and in recognition of the boom and as an acknowledgment that valuable works are being published outside traditional publishing, Publishers Weekly gives self-published authors a chance to be reviewed, for FREE, in the main pages of the magazine, alongside the prestigious book reviews from traditional publishers.

BookLife gives indie authors a dashboard to submit their self-published books—including print and e-books—to Publishers Weekly for editorial consideration for review. At absolutely no cost.

To keep you abreast of the self-publishing revolution, Publishers Weekly also has the marketing program PW Select, a monthly supplement dedicated exclusively to self-published titles. Each monthly supplement edition includes:

Our readership - agents, booksellers, publishers, distributors, librarians and media - constitute the ideal audience always on the alert for new talent, worthwhile books, and marketable products, and the PW Select offers a way for indie authors to put their books before this important book-buying audience.
