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 my newsletter.
I'm just starting out. What do I really need to know?
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. Subscribe to my newsletter to be notified when the course opens to the next set of students.
Do you provide one-on-one consulting and services?
Yes, on a limited basis. I created the online course to take the place of most of my consulting work because I found that most authors had the same questions and wanted ongoing guidance, which is very expensive. But working one-on-one with authors is very satisfying for me, and so I set aside a little time each month for that. Book it, here.
