    Get as many quotes as you can from the so called "vanity publishers" first. They're the ones who'll format and print your book, and depending on how much work they do, as well as the quantity of copies you want published (they usually have a minimum), the costs can be high. Before you've committed to a publisher, contact Amazon and find out their requirements on selling books on their site (shouldn't be a problem, but better off knowing everything first). Get the necessary $$ together and go for it, young man!!!

    digital print-on-demand -- it costs nothing to put out a book, hard copy or digitally, and sell it on amazon.
