The Naked Author A Guide to Self-publishing (Paperback)
|Author: Alison Baverstock|
From the Publisher:
This how-to guide advises aspiring writers on how to tap into the world of self-publishing and channel their energy to handle the creative demands of their craft and gain confidence in managing the many business aspects of publishing.
New online technology and digital publishing service providers have vastly contributed to the number of viable options available to writers who want their work published. This book offers a new look at this expanded playing field and compares it to the practices of commercial publishers so writers can see what they should emulate and avoid. It covers how to choose editorial and publishing services, where to look for red flags and potential scams, and how to assess whether a good job has been done.
This very practical guide encourages writers to examine why they want to publish and helps them define their aims and objectives whether they have a specific limited-use project in mind, like a family history, or they aspire to one day hit the bestseller lists. The Naked Author is THE roadmap to pragmatic and polished self-publishing.
