Author Kimberley Patterson’s Self-Pub Journey

5 years ago

Kimberley Patterson, Author

I invited local author Kimberley Patterson to share her Self-Pub path to our San Diego Self-Publishers Meetup group last week. Kimberley is the author of two Young Adult books: Red Rock is a western, and The Three Month Plan is what you might call genre fiction. She was incredibly generous with information about what worked, and what didn’t. She talks editing, cover design, marketing and publicity, social media, live events, and much more, including how she gets her book Redrock into the hands of every country music star that comes into town.

Scroll down to listen to the three-part series. I’ve broken them into segments of about one-half hour each. You’ll take away a whole lot of inspiration along with solid tips for your self-publishing success. Thank you Kimberley!

PS: Do you subscribe to my SoundCloud stream? This is where I publish audio blogs, excerpts from my self-publishing and my adventure travel books, podcasts and interviews. Take a look! If you’re in San Diego, perhaps you’d like to join the Self-Pub Meetup group. Our members range from newbies to expert. Join us!
