Self-publishing has really come into its own. In the past self-publishing has sometimes gotten a bad name because of lack of editorial oversight and not all P&T committees will count self-published writing for tenure. But lulu, blurb, and amazon and other print-on-demand services mean that anyone can get their ideas out to readers. In my experience, self-publishing is ideal for topics and writing that are unusual and/or not immediately relatable to traditional publishers. I've published a few books but always traditional channels where they've been accepted through the editorial process and/or peer-review. I'd love to learn more about self-publishing! Please share information about the nuts and bolts of how its done as well as why one might choose to self-publish design writing and creative work. I'm including images of two of my favorite self-published books and magazines and hopefully their authors, James Panafino and Garth Walker will tell us more about their creative and editorial process. BTW - Pannafino has sold as many or more of his book Interaction Design: A Visual Guide than any of my own books. And Walker's Ijusi never fails to keep me interested with wacky graphics and on-point content.
