New How-To Book: Nuts & Bolts of Self-Publishing
Chris Longmuir’s new book will be a surprise to her fans who eagerly await her next crime thriller. But Chris has drawn on her extensive experience of self-publishing and taken time out to write a non-fiction book which she hopes will help many aspiring writers who have not yet broken into the publishing world.
Her new book, The Nuts & Bolts of Self-Publishing: How to Self-Publish Ebooks and Paperbacks, is a comprehensive guide to self-publishing and the tasks required to produce a professionally designed book. It covers all aspects of self-publishing and will provide advice on how to avoid some of the pitfalls that might be encountered.
Included in this guide are step-by-step instructions on what the self-publisher needs to do before publication, how to create accounts, how to format a manuscript for ebook and paperback publication, how to add a TOC, how to acquire an ISBN and register the book, how to upload and submit the book for publication, and what needs to do be done after publication.
Alongside the step-by-step instructions, there is information about costing and pricing, author services, and outsourcing, as well a lot more.
Chris is an award-winning crime writer who has experience in both the traditional and indie worlds of self-publishing. She has always been generous with her advice and has helped many indie authors when they hit problems. With this book she hopes to bring her knowledge and experience to a wider audience.
“Probably the most comprehensive manual on how to get into self-publishing. As an independent writer/publisher myself, I have to say that I wish it had been available five years ago!” Chris Calder
“This book is called the nuts and Bolts of Self-Publishing but it is so much more than that. It’s nuts and bolts, screwed in tight, providing a solid framework on which to publish your book. Every single thing you need to know is covered, and then some. Even better, it is covered well with the author’s experience shining through in every word. It is bang slap up to date with the latest technology being used and discussed. Beginners and experienced authors alike will find this book invaluable. A definite must have for every Indie Author’s bookshelf.” Wendy H Jones, author
