Is the idea of self-publishing daunting to you?
According to a New York Times report, 81% of Americans aspire to write a book but few ever write one and even fewer ever publish a book.
The obstacles seem great, but as Martin Luther King said, "You don't have to see the whole staircase - just take the next step."
Whether you're an aspiring writer, have already written a book or are a trade published author looking for a different publishing direction, there is no better time than now to get your words out there through self-publishing.
This is not a motivational book.
Instead, this book walks you through the steps of self-publishing; from ideas on how to flex your writing muscles to word processing choices to finally seeing your book sold on Amazon.
Save your money. There is no reason to spend hundreds or even thousands on expensive, unnecessary publishing services. From editing, formatting and cover design to finally self-publishing your e-book on Amazon's Kindle Direct Publishing, this book suggests steps and self-publishing tools carefully picked with those on a budget in mind.
Self-publishing is not complicated. In fact, it is a simple process. Simple, however, does not mean easy. Gleaning information from many bestselling self-published authors, and written by a bootstrapped self-published author of over a dozen books (8 which hit Amazon's category bestseller lists), this book will show you how you can write your first word to publishing your final product on Amazon's Kindle Direct Publishing without even spending a dime.
