Indie publishing charges my world. Thanks to the ability to do so, I went from the dream of being published, to seeing my books for sale on Amazon.com. I have learned so much from the process that I started sharing it with you on this blog, and on social media. It is a big big world out there and has offered a great business model for many. And I am very excited about that, and the future of this industry, now solidly known as indie publishing.
First of all…
If you are just getting started, and you want to write, publish and sell your own work, these two books will give you a great head start. DON’T shrug this off. Invest in your writing career by spending a little money on education. You will discover a world out there that you didn’t know existed and it will come back to you in time. Saving time is important. Don’t do everything the wrong way the first time like I did! Arm yourself with knowledge and you will find it pays for itself.

This book, Business for Authors, will take you from being an author, to being a business as an author.
Let’s Get Digital: How To Self-Publish, And Why You Should (Updated 2nd Edition) covers everything from how the disruptive power of the internet has changed the publishing business forever to the opportunities this has created for writers. It gives you practical, hands-on advice, sharing the very latest best practices on editing, cover design, formatting, and pricing.
So, that’s two books to get you started on this journey, and to give you a little food for thought. IF you are just getting your feet wet in all of this, well, maybe you should just WRITE. Once it is finished and you are letting it rest, like a good bread, then you can read these books. Write first, think about the writing life later.
