Publishing A Book

I've always wanted to write a book. Not that my writing's Pulitzer quality, but sometimes I feel like I have so much to say and nothing to say at all.

Below is a way to get published:

1. Write Book
2. Self-published with online POD like CafeExpress
3. Get an ISBN (for a book), or a UPC (for a CD or DVD). For one book it costs $125, for one CD, $55, for one DVD, $89.
4. Get a bar code based on the ISBN or UPC. Costs $10, or may be included in UPC.
5. Send free books to critics like NYT or Oprah
6. Get Listed on Amazon - Ship two copies to them with cover scan
7. Track sales
8. Do your taxes
