Self-Publishing – Part Three


In this post, we continue our series on self-publishing as an option for authors. Thank you for all the lovely questions and feedback we have received so far. This is part three, with the third video on self-publishing.

The End | Self-Publishing – Video 3

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

Choosing a publication route is a big decision and a very personal one. Over the next few weeks we’ll be discussing Traditional Publishing and Self-publishing in detail.

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
