I am pleased to announce the release of my newest book, How to Publish Your Book, A Beginner’s Guide for Print, Digital and e-Books. In this book I take you through an introduction and overview to self-publishing. The services, the different kinds of books you can create, the where, why and how. The power is in your hands and we can now publish, distribute and sell our writing around the world for almost no money or resistance. It is an amazing moment in time, and we can take advantage of it. This book shows you how.
How to Publish Your Book covers why you should self-publish, how you can make money from publishing your own books, and where you should publish. How to Publish Your Book talks about using the latest print-on-demand services like CreateSpace.com and Lulu.com for producing paperback, hard cover, photo and audio books. After discussing where to publish we turn to where to sell your book, the types of books you can make and then how you do it. The book also talks about the Kindle Comic Creator the new free application from Amazon that lets you publish graphic novels, comic books and children books super easy and very fast. After publishing and selling comes marketing and we have an overview of what to do before your start writing to build your platform and what to do after the book is out.
One of my favorite topics is how you can re-purposing of your content. Write it once and use it over and over in many different ways. We learn about some of the other product creation sites that you can use and how to extend your book.
