Top Ten Tips for Self-Publishing
The new age of Internet and global connectivity creates a whole new playing field for authors and potential authors all around the world. Especially with Amazon’s Kindle Direct Publishing, anybody anywhere can publish anything at any time. For those of us who are poor, don’t want to be tied down by the restrictions of traditional publishing, or want to be in full control of our work, this is fantastic!
However, there are some cons. Simply hitting the “Publish” button on KDP or Smashwords isn’t going to get you very many readers, especially because, as I said earlier, anybody can publish. The e-market of self-publishing has created an Internet supersaturated with books, most of which are crap. If you want to stand out in the crowd, it’s going to be pretty damn difficult. Writing a good book is only half the battle.
