And maybe earn some money

Write it, print it on your computer, then bind it, put a cover on it, do this a couple of thousand times, then sell it to your local bookstore!!!

You can type it into book layout software and use your own printer, but you still have to purchase the ink and paper. It is impossible to publish a book for free. Also, its a really difficult way to make money......try something else. You could get lots of money into your printer, ink and paper, and lose it all if you can't sell the book.

A publishing company would do it 4 free if they like your book. It is tough getting them 2 even read it.

Amazon.com offers publishing. I started the process to see what it's about. You upload your story from a Word document, and even your own cover (if you choose to). You can also set your own prices.

Once it starts selling, you have two options for royalties. You can learn more about it, but you have to start the process. You can easily stop it any time.

In my opinion, the downside is that you can only publish a book digitally. If you want a print copy of your book, you have to do it the old-fashioned way.

I've tried Xlibris. They've been really helpful. It's not free, but it's not too expensive.
