As inspiration for your new self-publishing year, here's a checklist of the self-publishing superstars that we interviewed for our Sunday “How I Do It” slot in 2015.
Each special guest answered the same 7 key questions, in as many or as few words as they wished:
- What is the secret of your success?
- What was the single best thing you ever did?
- How do you get/stay in a creative mood?
- How do you prioritise?
- What’s next?
- What’s the highlight of being an author – publisher for you?
- What are your top tips for other indie authors?
Although between them the guests represented a wide range of genres, from historical fiction to travel writing, there were some recurring themes echoing through their answers – and also quite a few surprises!
