I’ve learned so much in the last 2 yrs. Thanks mostly to other helpful people that took the time to write blogs. I have a strong desire to do my part. In recent months I started doing just that in the form of re-tweets on twitter and sharing on my Google + page. It become not enough for me, but I had no idea in what direction I should take this driving need to help.
This week while discussing my website with my husband an inspiration finally came to me. I started a new blog that you can easily access from this webpage, just click on the My Blog button on the toolbar. Once a week I will post a new blog directed specifically toward new self publishers.
There is a plethora of information out there on the web, but it’s so spread out that combing through it at times becomes so confusing. I plan to take all the research I have accumulated in the last 2 yrs and write a series of posts on helpful subject matter.
The first series is entitled Self Publishing for Beginners. The idea is to give a basic guideline of what direction an author who wishes to self publish should go once his manuscript is finished. Some of what I write may seem obvious, but you would be surprised how much people don’t really know.
Most of us have lived in an age where you submitted your work to a publisher. If you got accepted then you were done. Anyone who has been this route actually knows the reality is much different than that, but the misconception is still there. That leaves some authors who want to self publish their own work a little lost. Hopefully my blog will help.
