Self Publishing Part 2

Self Publishing!
Part 2

Six avenues of research in your quest to become a self-published author.

  1. Select your self publishing company. Communicate daily with your advisor.
  2. Enlist the people in your circle of friends to give you feed-back. They will be honest and give you loads of good advice.
  3. Select a person to proof read your chapters. ( You can hire a professional. I chose several of my friends to help.)
  4. Research your title to see if it ranks high with Google. Be creative! It needs to be something catchy.
  5. Your book cover design is most important. Select an image to inspire your audience and make them want to open the book and read.
  6. Keep colored photos to a minimal. Color photos can drive up the cost of production. Black and white are cheaper.

Hints to consider

  • How much are you willing to spend? You can purchase a medium priced package for under $1,000. It will include loads of features and business support to answer all your thousands of questions.
  • I suggest a book calendar to keep you on track. Don’t try to do too many things at once. Build your calendar around topics to be completed. Work with one thing at a time. Start with the most important and work down.
