An Interview with Kevin Weiss About Self-Publishing [Video]

If you are writing a book—or thinking about it—you have no doubt considered self-publishing. Thanks to recent developments in technology, it has never been easier or less expensive.

A few years ago, we launched a self-publishing division at Thomas Nelson called WestBow Press. We did so in partnership with Author Solutions, the largest self-publishing company in the world. They have proven to be great partners.

A few weeks ago, I got to sit down with Kevin Weiss, President and CEO of Author Solutions. In this eight-minute video, I asked Kevin five questions about self-publishing:

  1. What is self-publishing and how does it differ from vanity publishing?
  2. What advantages does self-publishing have over traditional publishing?
  3. What kind of authors can benefit the most from self-publishing?
  4. Who are some examples of self-published authors who have succeeded?
  5. What should an author expect to spend to self-publish a book?

While self-publishing might not be right for everyone, it is worth exploring. You can learn more on the WestBow Press website or read my previous post, “Should You Consider Self-Publishing?
