This depends on how much you expect to be able to do yourself.

You would need to ensure:

  • permission is obtained to use any copyrighted images
  • proof reading is carried out
  • Selecting best option for creating your book, depending on what “look” you are wanting to create
  • Simple books can be created in MS Word
  • More complex layouts will need a Desk Top Publishing system


  • Preparing electronic document from your input
  • Preparing “print files” from the final electronic document
  • Designing and preparing cover for book
  • This is best done in Desk Top Publishing
  • Obtaining and including ISBN barcode
  • Registering book cover with Nielson


You will need to pay for the costs of printing before the go-ahead to print can be given

  • Identifying the printer for your book
  • This partly depends on the print run you are thinking of
  • Getting a quotation for the printing work
  • Obtaining bound proof copy
  • Obtaining final books

It can be less expensive than you think. The table below lays out the main steps that need to be taken and some costs. The total cost, of course, depends on how much work there is to do and on the costs of printing. It is possible to get a small book into print for less than £200.
