I am interested in self publishing -- not for everything, but for work that I don't think I can sell to a publisher and want to make available. So anything anyone can tell me about the process will be useful.
The poetry group I belong to just self-published a collection. It has gotten its first review, which is a rave, except the reviewer really did not like the cover. I found the image for the cover, so am in part responsible. The reviewer said the type face and the photo quality made the book look amateurish. I guess this is an argument for a designer.
I am not too upset, because the reviewer liked everything else and mentioned me by name.
