Everyone is chatting about how self publishing is now viable. Writers of the world, novice and experienced, can re-invent themselves with new technology. not only that, we can keep all of the profits. The only problem is how do we wear all of the different hats that are necessary to get our words out to a target audience?
If you decide to go down the newly paved road to self publication, you will now wear several hats, that is, unless you want help. If you want help you will certainly pay a price. If you decide to do it on your own you will have to wear a writers hat, an editors hat, a cover designers hat, and publisher’s hat and finally, a marketing hat. That’s a lot of hats, but it can be done. your determination and motivation will get you doing things you never thought possible.
It can only benefit you to learn as much as you can. It’s a brave new world and all the tools you will need are out there. Most of them are free. you just have to know where to look. One place to get some answers is at http://www.selfpublishingresources.com. This iste has a great list of resources from blogging and ebooks, to illustration and design of your cover. There is a lot to take in but we all know that knowledge is power.
What has your journey been like, in this brave new world?
