The Publishing Maven



While wandering through the blogs I follow I came across a contest on The Publishing Maven which was giving away a package of books geared towards helping authors self publish their works. Of course it was during that time when I was on a roll winning contests and lo and behold I won.

The published author of the above book who is also the author of The Publishing Maven blog sent me seven books related to writing and self publishing. The wealth of information contained in these books is nothing short of astounding. I have just begun reading The Step-By-Step Guide to Self-Publishing for Profit by Christy Pinheiro. It is one of the most detailed books on self publishing I've read. I will be posting a review once I have finished the book. For now, though, I just want to again thank Christy for these books and point all of you towards her blog which is a wonderfully written site on the ins and outs of writing and publishing. So please, go take a look. I learn so much from reading her posts and this book which she authored. You can find the book on Amazon.com by clicking the link below.

Thank you Christy.

I used the Self Publishing Manual by Dan Poynter. Not saying this one isn't good. I'm just not familiar with it. Maybe I'll check out this one before the sequel to North Country Cache

Shark, Dan Poynter is the master of POD. I've read a couple of his books. A sequel, fantastic!

Thanks for the links and the information! I came, I saw, I read, I bookmarked! New information since I first began self-publishing half a decade ago!

Wow, a decade ago. I envy you. I'm glad some of the info helped. Thanks for visiting.

Hi! the above is for non-fiction only! what if you have fiction?

Poetic Shutterbug said...

Anon, There are many self publishing options out there for fiction as well. Lulu.com is an excellent source for self publishing in any genre. Check them out to see if they meet your needs. Thanks for stopping by.
