I’ve announced this on my Facebook author wall, but wanted to let you blog readers know I am preparing to release a handbook on indie (independent) publishing this December! Indie Publishing Handbook: Four Key Elements for the Self-Publisher compiles much of the information I’ve shared on my own blog and others about self-publishing.
I have talked to SO many authors over this past year who have been considering indie publishing, but weren’t sure what’s involved. This handbook will give an overview of four key elements indie publishers oversee in a quick-read format.
Here’s the blurb on the book:
Are you dreaming of your own career as an independent author and self-publisher?
This concise handbook covers the four key elements every self-publisher must oversee for successful book publication: 1) editing, 2) creating cover art and blurbs, 3) formatting and uploading books, and 4) marketing. Focused advice will help you maneuver these key elements, whether you outsource or learn to master them yourself.
You’ll also find a bonus section with practical tips from seasoned independent authors.
Indie Publishing Handbook: Four Key Elements for the Self-Publisher is your one-stop for basics on everything you need to get started and excel as an independent publisher.
You can find the book on Goodreads here if you want to add to your To-Read list, and I will keep this site and my Facebook page updated with release date and news. Please know I am also working on Trial by Twelve (Book 2 in the Murder in the Mountains Series), so my fiction writing has not been put on hold for this. This is simply a “mission statement,” as it were…something I hope will help authors considering this path.
