I have been doing some bits and bobs of searching on the internet about doing some self publishing later on this year. It's a bit of a minefield by the looks of things. I have found all manner of sites that will provide you with a digital publishing platform and also a few sites that will make books to order. Some places do both.
There are "brand" names like Lulu, Smashwords and the like, but I was wondering if any of you folk out there would be able to point me in the right direction and maybe share some experiences. I'd feel better about going into it with some first hand knowledge from any of you that have decided to go down that path.
