    I'd like to point out an error in the second part of this article.

    CreateSpace doesn't give out royalties of 20% and 60% for the CS eStore and the Expanded Distribution respectively. Those are the wholesalers' discounts. The formula to calculate how you'd earn is:

    (Recommended Retail Price - Wholesaler Discount) - Printing costs = Author Royalties

    CreateSpace does have a royalties calculator you can use to work out how much you'll earn per book depending on your sales channels. Can't remember the link exactly...

    I wouldn't know if this mistake of confusing wholesaler discounts and royalty rates with Lulu and B&N, since I've never used these.

    Otherwise, the first part is a good introduction to the advantages of self publishing - and its main disadvantage.

    What I really like about self-publishing is that you can write your ebooks/novels/WSOs on your computer and publish it without spending an extravagant amount of money. A lot of the tools can also be obtain online at the comfort of your home which is very convenient.
