Does the world need another How To for the self-publishing process? YES!
Because even the most helpful step-by-step how to self publish a book resources are not as step by step as I need them to be.
I honestly need a true step by step. I have so many things going on in a single day – not even counting my full time job – that I find it overwhelming to try and get the short pieces of time that I have available to add up to a large piece of progress on my writing project.
My book series does not seek to convince an author to self publish. There are many well written books out there for that purpose.
My books don’t try to teach why an author should take the steps I list in my series. The books listed below, among many others, are the best way to learn why.
My series takes a complex and challenging process and breaks it down into tasks that I can accomplish in an hour. Those hours add up over time – and I put them in order- which saves me an impressive amount of time and stress.
After I’ve read and re-read Dan Poynter’s “Self-Publishing Manual: How to Write, Print and Sell Your Own Book”, and Carla King’s “Self-Publishing Boot Camp Guide For Authors: Step-by-Step to Self-Publishing Success, I still am left with the overwhelming and often action-stopping stress of where to begin. That’s with two self published (and selling) books already under my belt!
I know I am not the only person wanting this kind of true step by step resource. I have to write it for myself – so I will write it in a way that I can share.
I’m up to the “research similar titles” part – always interesting – and I’m finding that it is more important than usual to watch the publication date because Self publishing is a quickly-changing field.
