Can I help you in any way? Self-publishing
“Hello, thank you for visiting. Can I help you in any way?” If you’ve browsed our TAA website, you’ve likely seen those words in the chat box that appears on the screen. We’re often asked by visitors if we’re “real”. Then those who realize that we are, and that we are there to help, ask questions that you may have as well.
In this series of “Can I help you in any way?” posts, we’ll highlight some of the questions people have asked through the TAA Live Chat feature of our site and the responses we have for those questions. In this post, we’re focused on a question about self-publishing.
The TAA blog is full of resources on a wide variety of subjects for textbook and academic authors. In fact, we have an entire category of articles dedicated to the topic of self-publishing. Included in this collection are the following items:

This visitor was specifically interested in information “regarding self-publishing eBooks”, so I also shared with them an article on the Kindle Textbook Creator tool from Amazon.
