A MUST READ FOR THE NEW SELF-PUBLISHER. The entire post below is from Dave’s blog:
Let’s Get Digital
The internet has revolutionized every business it has come into contact with, and publishing is no different.
For the first time, these changes are handing power back to the writer. It’s up to YOU if you want to profit from them.
This guide contains over 60,000 words of essays, articles, and how-to guides, as well as contributions from 33 bestselling indie authors including J Carson Black, Bob Mayer, Victorine Lieske, Mark Edwards, and many more.
It covers everything from how the disruptive power of the internet has changed the publishing business forever to the opportunities this has created for writers. It gives you practical advice on editing, cover design, formatting, and pricing. And it reveals marketing tips from blogging and social networking right through to competitions, discounts, reviews, and giveaways.
If you are considering self-publishing, if you need to breathe life into your flagging sales, or if you want to understand why it’s a great time to be a writer, Let’s Get Digital: How To Self-Publish, And Why You Should will explain it all.
