If you’re thinking about self-publishing, there’s something you should know. You don’t have to do everything yourself. Self-publishing companies like BookLocker can help make your book available to readers. Not only will they sell your book through their website, but they’ll make it available to many online and most brick and mortar bookstores. Online stores include Amazon.com, BarnesandNoble.com, booksamillion.com, chapters.ca and several others. With this system, you’ll still have to market your book, but you won’t have to deal with the sales end of things.
Angela and Richard Hoy, the owners of BookLocker, have a reputation to uphold. They know their readers will only return for more books if BookLocker continues to offer a consistent writing standard. That’s why they won’t publish any old book. They review the manuscript and if it’s not up to snuff, they reject the story.
BookLocker has been in business since 1999 and has seen POD (print on demand) and ebook authors receive traditional publishing contracts as a result of their self-published books.

Maybe you’re not planning on going the self-publishing route, but if you’re considering it, I suggest you check out POD companies like BookLocker.
