Distribution is a very important part of the publishing process and whether you are producing your book for pleasure, profit or publicity your book is no good if no one reads it. There are many different ways to distribute your book but the main options include self distribution, online distribution and bookstore distribution. Some have initial set up costs, some have ongoing production costs and some have both.
