Self-Publishing – Part Four


In this post, we end our video series on self-publishing as an option for authors. This is part four, with the fourth video on self-publishing.

We will continue the series next week with a discussion about Traditional Publishing as an option for authors. If you haven’t watched all the self-publishing videos yet you will find the links below. Thank you for all the lovely questions and feedback we have received so far. We love hearing from you.

The End | Self-Publishing – Video 4

A while ago, I wrote a post about 5 Things That Happen After You’ve Typed THE END, and since then I’ve received many questions about all the steps and processes. I thought it may be worthwhile to explore each step in a little more detail.

In previous posts, we covered:

  1. Step 1: The Final Draft and Rewriting
  2. Step 2: The Appraisal
  3. Step 3: The Edit
  4. Step 4: Proofreading
  5. Step 5: Publishing

Please read Step 5: Publishing before you continue.

Then watch:

  1. Self-Publishing – Part One
  2. Self-Publishing – Part Two
  3. Self-Publishing – Part Three
  4. Self-Publishing – Part Four

In this post, we look at Self-Publishing – Part Four.

In the videos you will meet Dave Henderson from MyeBook.

  2. Can you recommend and resources for the curious?
  3. How important is an author platform?
  4. Common traits of our best-selling authors?
  5. Where can you find out more?

This is a simple summary of the chat, but you will find lots of information in between. This is Video 4 of 4.
