Most of you know that I have self-published a number of books now. Through trial and error, I learned that it’s not an easy process. However, for me, the angst has been totally worth it. After all, my mom was able to read several of my books before she passed away last year. And this year, I sent print versions of the Animal Antics books to my dad, who enjoyed them immensely and wants to know when the third book will be out. So if no one else ever reads my books, at least my parents have enjoyed some of them. Had I waited for a traditional publishing contract, that may never have happened. After all, I write about topics that are far from mainstream.
Anyway, I penned three books to help would-be authors navigate the rough seas of self-publishing which you can find on Amazon (A Beginner’s Guide to Self-Publishing series). Now, I’m extending my offerings to include the Self-Publishing for Beginners School on Teachable.
The introductory course is FREE. Is Self-Publishing For You? presents the types of publishing available and will help you determine whether self-publishing, traditional publishing, or hybrid publishing will meet your needs.
The first course ready for enrollment is A Beginner’s Guide to Book Formatting, which deals with the bane of most authors’ existence. More courses will be rolling out on a regular basis over the course of the next year or so.
So if you’re toying with the idea of self-publishing, then I invite you to check out the Self-Publishing for Beginners School!
