How to Publish in EBook or Paperback Formats

If you feel what you have written is interesting enough to be published, you will probably need to have it professionally edited unless you are very good at self-editing or have a friend who is capable of doing so and can be trusted to be objective and brutally honest. To proofread thoroughly what you have written on the computer, you should print the document. The printed document reveals flaws that you missed on the computer monitor. This is a well-proven fact. After reading the manuscript many times during the writing and editing, you will become so familiar with the contents that you will read what should be there rather than what is actually there. Having one or more other persons dedicated to the task is a better option. Again, if you wish to pass up the need for a professional editor, you must be a writer capable of good syntax as well as one who avoids punctuation and other grammatical errors. This skill may come over time by reading good books and employing plenty of practice in the art of good writing.
