I used CreateSpace, an Amazon company to become published. The procedure is mostly free and a little time consuming but it works. I only paid for Proof copies. It wasn't necessary but I wanted to see them.

Just a forewarning, you are only entitled royalties when a book is sold. I can't remember exactly how it breaks down. It's not bad though.

Apparently, Amazon decided to make the first six pages available for free. Ha! Here are random excerpts:

Something dripped onto my face.
I heard the hammer slam into the plywood. The father released me.

“Let me rephrase that. The dog chewed its leg off and I am hungry. Do you have money for some real food? I didn't fucking think so.”
She looked both displeased and disgusted. She began scratching her arm and breathing heavily. Small bouts of scratching were followed by flicking her thumb against her other fingers, trying to clean out the flakes of skin from underneath her fingernails.

Easy indeed... With the help of Rum and Whiskey. This was the closest thing to D.I.Y. that I could handle with my current finances and time-consuming hobbies. Not to mention, I can't stand trying to explain myself to establishment lackeys.
