Here’s how I did mine. It does cost money, but make sure you shop around and find what works best for you. Ask friends if they know any graphic designers/web builders, normally for family and friends they will be cheaper.
Get it copy edited, copy editors are expensive they range between £700-£1000. However proof reading is very important. You could contact colleges and universities and ask if an English major would be interested in a proof reading job, you can set the price! Ask fellow indi authors who copy edited their work, usually their editor would’ve been very good and a lot cheaper too.
Find a graphic designer to create your cover jacket. Shop around, even ask students as they will be keen for the work and the experience.
Find a web builder, once again shop around never choose the first company you find. Web designers can charge up to £400.
Contact ISBN and get your bar code sorted out, this is approximately £80
Get your book copy protected. Simply go on line, (UK copyright office) this costs approximately £40.
Upload your book onto Amazon, ebook.
Organise a book launch.
Advertise your book wherever you can, local paper, magazines, offer your book as prizes for raffles and charity events.
Keep blogging, tweeting, facebooking…

Finally got round to reviewing your book. Really enjoyed it and have recommended it to friends as a good summer holiday read. Great characters and description of them all – could really picture them. Only downside (and this isn\’t really bad) is that I felt hungry whilst reading – all that food. Therefore would suggest reading and eating a decent cupcake at the same time – just one though otherwise you\’ll need a good Zumba session to work it off!
