The answer to this question is simple, "If you can't find a publisher, self-publish."

In fact, there are stories of authors who first started only to discover that they couldn't get a publisher at all and they had no money to self-publish.

Truth be told, the first publisher that I engaged, they did not do a good job of marketing that was up to my expectation.

We know that right now, because of the internet you can publish your book through an e-book which costs you almost zero and will still enable you to reach a worldwide audience.

What some of them have done is to publish their book as an e-book which almost costs nothing and when it became popular as an e-book, they made even more money. After which they published the original e-book into a hard cover book. So it can be done the other way as well.

Here's the example website that offers a Print On Demand service. It's called "alibris.com". What they do is list your book there. Anyone who wants to order it can go to the above website, download the form, place an order and they will print the book.

The key advantages of this service are that you do need to keep stock and your customers also pay for the printing, which will save you a lot of money.

In fact nowadays with the rise in technology, it is so easy to do a print on demand. For those of you who are interested in finding a good publisher, an online publisher at that and make it available to the rest of the world this is a great solution.
