Self-publishing is the phenomenon of the digital age. With direct access to a host of internet distributors, thousands of people self-publish every year. ‘Indie Publishing’ bypasses the traditional route of agent and trade publisher, creating a direct market online and through "print on demand". Self-publish Your Novel Made Easy will guide you through the significant challenges of self-publishing, from the start of the first sentence to the distribution of your book into the global marketplace of readers. Understanding your genre and brand the whole way along the process is key. You will be given tips on writing as well as covering the editing process to make sure your finished product is perfect. The technicalities of choosing writing programs and how to format, upload and distribute your novel will also be covered in clear detail. Then it’s time to promote: design the perfect cover, write enticing blurbs, choose the right price, get your book noticed and balance social media activity with time to write. Lastly, self-publishing as a business is explored, explaining legal issues and how to cope with sales statements. With clear step-by-step guides, tip boxes and screenshots, Self-publish Your Novel Made Easy is invaluable for anyone who wants to get their novel out there.
