Self-publishing means taking the initiative to publish your book independently, without relying on traditional publishing houses. As a self-published author, you have control over the entire publishing process, from writing and editing to distribution.
Self-publishing offers authors greater creative control, faster time to market, higher royalty rates, and the ability to retain full ownership of their work. It’s a flexible and empowering option for authors looking to bring their books to readers.
While it may seem overwhelming, Dara Publishing provides self-publishing consulting and book coaching services to guide you through the process. Our experienced team is here to assist, making the journey more manageable for aspiring authors.

The decision between traditional publishing and self-publishing depends on your goals, preferences, and the unique aspects of your book.

On the other hand, self-publishing provides creative autonomy, faster time to market, and higher royalties. With Dara Publishing, our team can guide you through the self-publishing process, offering a blend of services to meet your specific needs. We empower authors to retain ownership and control while providing professional assistance in every aspect of the publishing journey.

Your book is automatically protected by copyright once it’s created. However, for added legal protection, consider registering your work with the U.S. Copyright Office. This strengthens your position in case of infringement and allows you to seek statutory damages. Additionally, clearly mark your work with a copyright notice, and if you collaborate or hire services, ensure clear agreements about copyright ownership. With Dara Publishing, authors retain full rights, providing a solid foundation for legal protection. Always consult legal professionals for personalized advice tailored to your specific situation.
