Do You Have a Self Publishing Tip?

If so, we'd love you to share your self publishing tip with us!

Self publishing can be a scary thing. We all know we have a lot of options, but we also know that not all of them are very good. If you have done any research in this area, you have heard all the horror stories about books being out of order or not edited as was indicated, bad cover design or just plain amateur looking.

Not every business cares about our work as much as we do and that is the harsh reality of the situation. So when you’re trying to figure out the best way to get your baby to the market, you can be confused, overwhelmed and misled. Not a great position to be in, take it from me.

The fact that you might make the wrong decisions about choosing how to publish can cost a lot of time and money! Sadly, I know this from experience, I did it.

The good news? You can find a way!

What about you? I know it can be painful to remember the bad experience but look at it as a chance to let off some steam while helping a fellow writer avoid the same pain you experienced.

Here are a few self publishing tips to help you to have a successful experience:

  • Write a good book. I know, this shouldn't even have to be said, but unfortunately it does. I know because I have been asked to review many that are just disappointing. So I have to say it. Write something you are proud of.
  • Get professional editing. I know your book may not be free of all errors even when hiring an editor, but I can tell you, it's worth it. Editors can help in so many ways, so before you publish, get a set of eyes on it that can give you tips to make it your best.
  • Be sure the layout is clean. With all the reading devices we use, it can be hard to read information that isn't formatted well. If you have ever tried, you understand the frustration in trying to do so. Be sure to check with your publisher to see if you have your formatting right.
  • Choose an appealing cover design. The cover has so much to do with selling your book so make sure you have a good one. There are many experienced cover designers out there so be sure to see their work to be sure they are a good fit for you.
  • Market your book. This is the MOST important thing you can do to have a successful book or ebook. Most of us, as writers, don't like to market but it is a necessary task. I can recommend the book I use, it's called
90 DAYS OF PROMOTING YOUR BOOK ONLINE: Your Book's Daily Marketing Plan

and it's the best book I have found. It actually takes you through your marketing activities day by day. You need this book if you want to be a successful writer!
