Article: “How to Self-Publish a Book”

I’ve spent the last several years helping all kinds of authors—from brand-new to highly experienced—work through the intensive process of creating a book that is ready for publication. It’s been incredible to see the progress of these projects, and I sincerely believe I have one of the best jobs in the world!

If you’ve been wondering about the process—how to go from an idea through to a finished product—maybe 2019 is the year?

If so, self-publishing is one option to consider:

“Some people do come to self-publishing saying ‘I know this is right for me, I’m excited about it, I want to get my hands dirty and figure all this stuff out,’ and for some people it’s very much a backup,” Brooke Warner, co-founder of She Writes Press, explains. Although it’s perfectly fine to choose self-publishing after querying your book in the traditional publishing market, you shouldn’t go in thinking “Well, I couldn’t get an agent, so it looks like self-publishing is my only option.” Self-publishing should always be something you actively decide to do.
