There’s never been a better time to be an author.
But with over 2 million books published yearly, there has also never been more competition. How can you stand out?
Self-Publishing: You Can Do This! gives you a step-by-step guide on how to write, publish, and market your book. The book starts at the beginning, helping authors think about everything from how to organize their book, to when to write, to choosing a topic that sells.
But once the manuscript is written, what do you do? This is where many writers make a mistake, says author Karen Hodges Miller, who as the CEO of Open Door Publications has been working with self-published and independent authors since 2004. Her book gives an overview of everything you need to think about when turning your manuscript into both an e-book and paper book, including tips on formatting a professional looking book in Word.
Finally, she ends the book with a complete section on marketing books and e-books that covers everything from setting up an e-book promotion to organizing a launch event.
Whether you are a first-time author or an experienced indie publisher, there is something for you in Self-Publishing: You Can Do This!
