Self Publishing a book, unfortunately, isn't a quick get rich scheme. There's a mental, and financial cost. The majority of books published don't sell more than 500 copies. This isn't opinion, but a fact. The positive aspect of self Publishing is that publishing a book affords one with sharing their creativity, knowledge, or expertise. There's great potential to make an initial investment, and consistently earn money yearly. I first published my first novel Love Don't Live Here, almost 20 years ago, and I still sell the title today. Yet, the book doesn't sell itself. In fact none of my titles, just sell themselves. I work very hard at what I do. 

Jerry Gallimore, Eternal Solace is a title where I provided manuscript to Finished Book consultant services for. 

Over the years, I've written book synopsises, author bios, and presskits for many authors. 

It's costly to put a book together that hasn't been done right the first time. I know because, coming into the publishing business I learned from my own mistakes. I first published Live Don't Live Here in 2003 via a vanity press. After not being satisfied with the finished product. I took an 18 month hiatus to study the publishing industry and how to put a book together. In 2005 I released a revised edition of Love Don't Live Here, and in the boroughs of NYC, and Long Island streets was able to sell 5,000 copies. So, I know what I know, from experience.
