I’ve received a lot of advice on self-publishing since my blog post asking for help last week. It’s all good stuff, and very useful for me as I prepare to dip my toe into the self-publishing pond. The advice has included many suggestions for other resources to read and listen to, so I thought I’d combine those here, both for my own ease of reference and for anyone else looking for a list of beginner’s self-publishing guidance. I haven’t had time to read most of these yet, but they all come recommended by folks with more experience than me:
A starting point
An interesting article from an experienced indie author on what she would do if she were starting out now.
Write. Publish. Repeat. by Sean Platt & Johnny B Truant
Let’s Get Visible by David Gaughran
Let’s Get Digital by David Gaughran – PDF available free here
Authot 2.0 Blueprint by Joanna Penn – available for free if you sign up to Joanna’s mailing list – I’ve read some of Joanna’s other advice and it’s probably worth being on that mailing list anyway.
Blogs and websites
The Creative Penn – Joanna Penn again, pay attention class because her name’s likely to come up a lot over the next few months.
I love podcasts. They’re a great way to learn and be entertained while doing the housework. Just by going audio these folks have got my attention.
Thanks to Dylan Hearn, Graeme Cumming and especially Russell Phillips for your invaluable advice.
