Start A Self Publisher Business

A self-publishing business helps authors self-publish books through technology, services, education, and other means. Self-publishing businesses fall into three classifications: publishing platforms, author services, and self-publishing education companies.

To start a self-publishing business, you must file a “Doing Business As” (DBA) or form a limited liability company.

Self-publishing business is not a new phenomenon. The business dates back to the 18th century, and today it is increasingly becoming the first choice for writers.
