Self-Publishing

Self-Publishing – Part Two


In this post, we continue our series on self-publishing as an option for authors.

The End | Self-Publishing – Video 2

So you’ve finished your book and it’s time to publish. This is the second post in the series about self-publishing.

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 the video you will meet Dave Henderson from MyeBook.

Who Is Dave Henderson?

Dave-Henderson Dave founded MyeBook in 2012. His goal is to empower authors, poets, and industry professionals and to make self-publishing less scary. He has helped thousands of writers from across the globe by providing professional publishing advice and assistance.

These are the questions I asked in video 2:

  1. Would a self-published author ever need an agent?
  2. Copyright: who owns what?
  3. Quality control: what do you recommend?
  4. What are the most common mistakes self-published authors make?
  5. Which sales platforms, besides Amazon, do you recommend?
  6. Let’s talk about ‘Print on Demand’.
  7. What about authors who write in Traditional African Languages or languages other than English?

This is a simple summary of the chat, but you will find lots of information in between. This is Video 2 of 4.

Video 3 will be posted next week.
