Hi Queenperk, if you are publishing ebooks, you can try lulu.com. The service is free, they charge on sales. The commission is 20%. You can design your storefront and do your own marketing. If you are thinking of publishing both printed copies and ebook formats, you have to pay a package of $400. The package includes getting the ISBN for your books, and press release to the major online bookstores such as Amazon.

If it's DIY i.e do it yourself,you would need a computer,a template for writing books,printing papers and preferably a laser printer.Aply for isbn from your country as well,i think it's free to have one.Don't forget to copyright all your materials.If not,you can just try lulu.com

yeah. i did it. i self published my novel on lulu.com. i did the whole process on my own. a lot of work. but it felt great when i actually finished. i even designed the covers myself. i did the writing, editing, designed marketing material, etc. check out my novel on lulu. The Sand Dollar by Fifi Leigh. i have many sites to promote it, including lulu. just put the title and name in search, and u will get all the places my book comes up.

Try Lulu.com Not sure, but I think it's free for E-Books however if you want hardcopies, it'll cost you.

Someone suggested Lulu which is a good choice. You could try cafepress or blurb which seems to have a little more emphasis on creativity.
