Self-Publishing Your Book: A Guide for First-Time and DIY Authors

Self-Publish Your Book

Self-Publishing Your Book: A Guide for First-Time and DIY Authors by Roger Ellerton, Renewal Technologies, Inc. (2014) ISBN 978-0-9918645-3-9 E-book - 20 pages - 99 cents.

For those of you who are overwhelmed by the volumes of material in some of the larger books on publishing, here's a condensed version you may enjoy. Roger Ellerton has taken what he has learned and experienced as the author of several books and created this 20-page guide. He gives you the basics, outlines your publishing choices, and offers some of the more popular options. You'll get a nice introduction into CreateSpace, Lightning Source, Smashwords, Kindle Direct Publishing, and Google Partner.

If you're stymied as to your book cover, he provides links to articles that will help. I especially appreciate his section on editing, as he points out why it's important to hire an editor and what you can expect to gain from the experience. He also supplies some sites loaded with resources for authors, including (thank you, Roger), and he discusses the marketing aspect of books - again with some links and recommendations.

In describing Self-Publishing Your Book, I might say it's a small book packing a hefty payload. I recommend it to those of you who are new to publishing and who want a brief introduction so you know what to do next and what to expect as a published author.

Author: Patricia Fry has been working with other freelance writers and authors for over two decades. She is a literary and manuscript consultant, an editor and a teacher.
