So, you want to self publish? My advice is that you begin with research. Read, read, read all about self publishing ahead of time. The book, the formatting to e-publish, and the editing are all just the beginning. Then comes the legwork: marketing. Marketing is a lot of work to get started, yes, but self or traditional published both require it. So, I'm here to give tips as I navigate the marketing world myself.
Start with two books: 1)Smashwords Book Marketing Guide..." by Mark Coker. 2)Dollars & Sense: The Definitive Guide to Self-publishing Success by Carolyn McCray, Amber Scott and Rachel Thompson. It's full of good information in an easy to understand and implement format.
I'll take this one step at a time, so I'll leave you with this first step to follow. Happy reading!
