Do-it-yourself has flooded the publishing industry. The landscape of publishing has changed so much in the last several years. More and more authors are skipping the query-writing, agent-hunting, contract-grasping travails of writers past, and taking their books in hand to make their publishing dreams a reality.
Because of the rapid changes, it's hard for writers to keep up with what to do and how to do it. There are resources waiting for self-publishing writers, but it's difficult to weed through the enormous amounts out there.
Mary DeMuth is both a traditionally published author, and the author of several ebooks. She has put together a free report: Free Step-by-step guide to uploading e & print books.
In this 30-page guide, DeMuth shares:
~how to upload an ebook in 7 steps
~how to upload a physical book on CreateSpace in less than 2 hours
~the site she uses in conjunction with PayPal to administrate her e-purchases
~a brief overview of copyediting and writing mistakes to get your manuscript in shape
~marketing tips for your new book
~photos of the exterior and interior of books from CreateSpace
