A possibility to publish a book in an electronic format, quickly and at no cost, is luring authors to digital self-publishing. There is one value that suffers most from it: quality.

Agency Fish has put together a simple chart that guides us through the process of publishing a print book. There is much more to do than just:
- writing a book you’re personally satisfied with (first step – content submission),
- using a self-pub dashboard, like the KDP on Amazon, to make the book available in ebookstores (last step: distribution).
