There are many reasons educators want to turn their academic expertise into a self-published textbook. College professors can provide their students with more cost-friendly solutions. Subject experts can replace out-of-date curriculum. Textbooks can even become a supplementary income stream.

No matter what your goal is as an educator, BookBaby can help you print, publish, and sell a quality textbook that is helpful for both your students and your career.
