Best Place to Self-Publish a Book 


If you write a book -- with or without illustrations -- and format it using one of the popular desktop publishing programs such as QuarkXPress for Macintosh, simply copy your work onto a disk, bring it to Copyworld, and its staff will do the rest. In three to five working days, Copyworld will messenger you a proof copy of your book. If you have only minor corrections, the book will be published and delivered to your door in less than a week; a large press run might take two weeks. For a 100-page book with a perfect binding, the cost is $3.17 per book for 300 copies, or $2.13 per book for 2,000 copies. Color is available for an extra charge. The company also has two locations in Berkeley, at 1375 University Ave. and 2154 University Ave. (510/666-1000).
