I have to agree on the numbers and price. I have self-published. A run of 500 books of which all but 80 sold. It was done in China and it cost 9Euros a book,,,and I had to pay for the lot...so we are talking Euro4000! and that was China. I think you are being very optimistic. Print on demand through the likes of Blurb is a good idea, and you get to proof the book. But the margins are low...but then again they often are for the average authour. Rgds, K
