This book is for anyone who has ever considered publishing their own work but has either thought the process seemed too complicated or too expensive. My newest book will hold your hand as it guides your manuscript from your word processor to a formatted e-book and paperback. It will show you how to launch and market your book, get reviews, and use social media to establish an author platform. I promise to show you how this can all be accomplished for less than you would spend on a week’s worth of lattes!
My Do-It-Yourself Approach is full of useful advice and practical tips any author new to the world of self-publishing can easily implement.
The best news? I am not alone in this endeavor. I have teamed up with 6 other authors who represent a wide variety of writers including; Craig Hurren, Victoria Sawyer, Carmen Stefanescu, Clancy Tucker, Melissa Wray and Lee Zamloch. They have each contributed their insight on topics like the importance of research, coping with bad reviews, creating a brand, utilizing feedback and much more!

Review by Robin Austin
Great guide for new indie authors and helpful tips and resources for experienced self-publishers. How to Self-Publish tackles a broad category and does an excellent job. The writing style is casual and friendly from an enthusiastic self-published author of a number of books who writes from her own experience.
It is best read as a working user’s guide. There is good information on writing, researching and editing. Extensive information on formatting that you will want to read while actually doing the task. There is also helpful information on book covers, distribution and marketing. Finally, there is a generous resource section that is worth checking out and saving for future use.
This is definitely a do-it-yourself publishing book with brief information on enlisting the efforts of others. Most authors will not or should not do it all themselves. This book can sort out where you should spend your self-publishing dollars, help organize your efforts and avoid newbie mistakes.
