Are you the new guy trying to learn this self-publishing gig? Have you tried to self-publish your book and wonder why it has failed to gather sales and reviews? You got a book script, but don’t know where to start? Do you feel like self-publishing will mark you as an amateur?
You and thousands of other Indie-Authors are not alone.
What is an Indie Author? It is someone, a single individual, who chooses to publish their books without the help or interference of traditional publishing houses. The reasons are numerous for choosing such a path in life, but the reason is freedom. It is also difficult to get the attention of agents or publishing houses, and therefore, self-publishing is the only way remaining to get your book published.
For decades, the stigma of the term,’ self-published’ has meant bad book covers, bad interior formatting, and just a bad story in general. Back in the old days, there were no viable services accessible to the self-publishing author. You were lucky if you knew a guy who knew another guy who was an editor. This is no longer the case these days. There are thousands of editors, artists, and promoters out there in the land of the internet to help you.
With Amazon publishing thousands of titles per week, there is no reason why you, the Indie-Author, should fail in launching your book with, at the least, moderate returns on your hard work.
