As you can see this week we’ll be discussing marketing for self – published authors. I couldn’t resist the pun.
If you’re thinking about self-publishing your novel there’s lots and lots of things to consider. Self publishing is not for the faint of heart. Actually anything to do with any sort of writing and publishing takes real guts. And time.
Jami Gold’s website has a great guest post called, “The Newbie’s Guide to self-publishing.” Great checklist of things to consider.
Another awesome writer, Janice Hardy, has several posts about self-publishing too. Her site recently had a cool name change. It’s now called, “Fiction University.”
Her site also have a guest post from Patricia Cruzan entitled, “Becoming a self-published author.” Really informative.
CNET has a “25 things you need to know about self publishing.”
Livehacked.com has a marketing guide. Long, but worth the read.
Self Publishing Team is a AWESOME website for self-publishing info and tools. Check out their free monthly planner. This is useful for writers who are going traditionally published as well.
