Not knowing anything about your situation, it's hard for me to give you any substantial advice. However, Joe Konrath and Hugh Howey are probably the best resources around on self-publishing. If you read through their blogs, that's probably the best way to learn about the subject. jakonrath.com and hughhowey.com. Cheers!(less)

J.D. Salinger
“Do you know what I was smiling at? You wrote down that you were a writer by profession. It sounded to me like the loveliest euphemism I had ever heard. When was writing ever your profession? It's never been anything but your religion. Never. I'm a little over-excited now. Since it is your religion, do you know what you will be asked when you die? ... I'm so sure you'll get asked only two questions.' Were most of your stars out? Were you busy writing your heart out? If only you knew how easy it would be for you to say yes to both questions. If only you'd remember before ever you sit down to write that you've been a reader long before you were ever a writer. You simply fix that fact in your mind, then sit very still and ask yourself, as a reader, what piece of writing in all the world Buddy Glass would most want to read if he had his heart's choice. The next step is terrible, but so simple I can hardly believe it as I write it. You just sit down shamelessly and write the thing yourself. I won't even underline that. It's too important to be underlined.”
J.D. Salinger

Paulo Coelho
“There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.”
Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

Friedrich Nietzsche
“No one can construct for you the bridge upon which precisely you must cross the stream of life, no one but you yourself alone.”
Friedrich Nietzsche
