Hi

I am looking into self-publishing, am I to believe that the service in regards to publishing with YWO does not entail typesetting, and cover design?

Does the author look into all this herself and have the book ready - typeset, cover image and back blurb, copyright page etc all ready - to be printed via YWO and they do the marketing as such?

I am confused...

If it is, you may as well do all that and go straight to a printer. However I do think there is involvement with marketing - I'd hope so.

marketing is up to the aquthor as with most mid-list authors with publishing deals

Really? They do the editing then? Or just 'facilitate'.

Facilitate. They don't do the editing. They do typeset/copyset whatever it's called

You must get a cover designed, have the manuscript formatted specifically according to the publishing requirements, provide a blurb AND do all your own marketing.
YWO.com publish through Lightning Source and provide distribution through the major lists and online retailers for a small price (includes provision of an ISBN)
Believe it or not it is achievable, a lot of us have done it.

It might be a good idea to wait until the FeedARead mystery is resolved before taking the plunge with YWO! (see the Book Marketing Tips thread)
