How To Be A Self-Published Author: A Step-by-Step Guide
,
published in December 2009, explains in detail how to use what was then the most current technology and online resources to turn a manuscript into a published book. I usually tell new authors they need to complete their manuscript before starting on the publishing aspects, but I wrote this book as I did each step.

UPDATE April 2015: The online world is continually changing and what was ‘current’ in 2009, is old news now. I have linked to the book on Amazon so that you can use their ‘Look Inside’ feature to see the layout of the print book as well as the Table of Contents. Not everything in the book is included here but you can probably get most of the information you need through this website.


Why Self-Publishing Is Worth Doing

I was surprised at the number of videos on YouTube about publishing and, specifically, self-publishing. I made my way through several but not nearly all, and found this video by Darryl Sloan. I agree with just about everything he has to say regarding the positives of self-publishing.
