If You've Got The Will YOU Can Self-Publish
Marketing & Sales - if you are willing to do the marketing then sales will follow.
Here are a couple of examples
A first time author sold 800 copies in four months - just by utilizing some free marketing opportunities in her local area. The author's only cost was for the printing (~$5.00/book).
By starting with a small quantity (50 - cost of $250) and using the profit along with the original $250 (now recouped) she doubled the print run.... and.... well you can do the math.
Another first timer marketed by personally going in to bookshops in towns close to where he lived. He sold 500 in one month (not bad for a couple of senior citizens from the bush!)
