How to Self-Publish Your Book – Wannabe Pride How-To Series

Books, too

In case you missed it, I recently announced that I will be self-publishing my novel, QUEEN HENRY, in July of 2014 after many years of being a Wannabe writer. Though I have been told by industry professionals that my work has a strong chance of publication, so far it hasn’t happened so I am taking matters into my own hands.

The thing is, I don’t know the FIRST THING about self-publishing. However, I am very serious about my craft. I’ve never done anything halfway and I’m not about to start now. I plan on reading, researching, and learning as much as humanly possible about self-publishing before I finally launch my book next summer. Therefore, I have decided to do a yearlong series on my blog on self-publishing so I can pass along what I learn to others who are looking to learn about the whole “indie author” process. Please note that, when I refer to “self-publishing”, I am referring to independent authors who may hire freelancers to help with editing, cover design, formatting, and so forth, but who are not actually hiring a publishing company to publish their work.

Over the next year, I plan on blogging about the following topics, plus more that I probably haven’t even thought about yet:

* Editing (Developmental editing, copyediting, proofreading)

* Cover Design

* E-publishing

* Paperback / Hardback publishing

* Pricing Your Book

* Promoting Your Book

* Book Reviews

I hope you will join me on my journey toward self-publishing! Comments, suggestions, and ideas are always welcome!
