In Part 3: Making a Return on Your Investment, we`ll talk about how an independent author or self-publisher can get money back with his original book investment.

If you can, you can see if you can make an arrangement to have a one-time advance fee with your illustrator. It`s quite common now. Thank you, Jimmy.
