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.
