How to Publish a Book

… is what I’m trying to find out these days. While I have found some really good ones online, all of them are US based. When we calculate the cost of getting books shipped back to India, it becomes too costly.

Fourth is to publish it myself and try to sell it.

Fifth is to distribute the book freely
