Thanks for dropping by again! Today’s subject is Self-Publishing.
Does self-publishing intimidate you? If so, you aren’t alone. If I had a dollar for every author who told me they couldn’t possibly self-publish as it was too difficult, I could retire 🙂 Well, maybe that’s a bit of an exaggeration…
However, because I talk to so many authors who are convinced they couldn’t possibly self-publish, I’ve written two books and I’ve started a new video series.
Let’s talk about the video first. Authors aren’t aware of how straightforward it is to upload a book to Amazon via KDP. To prove that the average person can do it, I created a video while uploading my latest book to KDP. Just over 17 minutes from start to end. Certainly doable. Enjoy!
Next piece of new is the release of two new books!
Since I’m Canadian, when approaching the topic of self-publishing, I really wanted to create something specifically for a Canadian audience – and I did!
The Author’s Guide to Self-Publishing for Canadians was published a few weeks ago and is already getting some nice comments from my fellow authors!
“This thorough guide is pure gold for any Canadian author wanting to jump into the Indie waters, but who has no idea where to start. Written in a conversational, easy to understand style, Drozdowich works through the whole process of publishing your own book, breaking it down into logical, easily achievable steps–plus (very helpfully!) takes the time to define terms that get thrown around in the writing world that can be confusing to newbies.”
~ Ev Bishop, author of the popular River’s Sigh B & B series
“An in-depth, perfect guide for every beginning author – a must read!”
~Mimi Barbour, USA Today & NY Times Bestselling Author
It can be downloaded in ebook form from:
Paperback will be coming in a few weeks.
I needed to create something for the non-Canadian authors also. To serve that audience, I created:
Another lovely cover! How to Self-Publish a Book: For the Technology Challenged Author is focused at a more international audience. The specific Canadian references have been removed, but the same basic level and no-technobabble kind of explanation remains.
Although there are other books on self-publishing – and I’ve read most of them. Most don’t address the topic that I do. I tend to look at self-publishing as a series of steps that are quite straight-forward. There are certainly levels of strategy that exist once a book is published, but the stumbling block for many is actually publishing. These books attack that subject!
Like the Canadian version, How to Self-Publish a Book: For the Technology Challenge Author is available from all the Amazon locations including:
Soon to be found in all other retail locations as well as in paperback.
