Welcome, independent author! Here are the questions I get the most, and the answers.
How do I distribute my ebook and print book?
Great question! There are a LOT of ways to do this. Please read my blog post Book Aggregators and Distributors: How Your Book Gets to Your Readers.
Which tools and services do I need to help me publish?
I've created a Consumer's Guide to Writing & Publishing Tools & Services. It's a 90-page ebook that reviews companies from Amazon to Vellum. Get it for free (and updates forever). Subscribe to get it free.
I'm just starting out. What do I need to know first?
When you subscribe to my newsletter you'll get the link to download the consumer's guide and a short series of emails that introduce you to self-publishing essentials.
Do you do workshops?
Absolutely! I have created an online self-publishing course to guide you through the entire process. It's actually a bundle of six courses: Prepare Your Manuscript, Create Your Publishing Business, Make Your Book, Distribute Your Book, Sell Your Book Direct, and Market Your Book. Take a look!
If you'd like to create a customized workshop or retreat for your group, please let me know. I'm intrigued!
Do you provide one-on-one consulting and services?
Yes, I do coaching. Working one-on-one with authors is very satisfying for me, and so I set aside a little time each month to do that. Book it by clicking on the red button over there that says I WANT THIS!
I created the Self-Publishing Boot Camp online courses to take the place of most of my consulting work. Why? Most authors have the same questions and want ongoing guidance, which can be very expensive done one-on-one. So taking the boot camp course bundle allows me to offer guidance to more people at lower cost. I hope you'll check it out!
If you just need a few questions answered quickly and want the convenience of "renting my brain," go ahead and book. I'll be happy to talk with you.
Instructions on scheduling and preparing for our meeting come with the booking, but if you want to contact me first to make sure I can meet your schedule, you're welcome to do that.
We can do it by phone, Skype, or Zoom webinar. I prefer the Zoom webinar because it's easy to record and make it available to you.
I look forward to hearing from you. Please let me know how I can help.
