What is the process of self-publishing?

2016-07-18 15:52:21 in Writing Tips / Advice by Sonia Rambarran

I've been wanting to be more informed about getting my books out there and being recognised; hence, I would like to know what is the process of getting and having your books self-published. Of course, I can also google the process but coming on this site I think shall help.

I don't really have experience with publishing, but I do have some with online marketing.I would suggest creating an ebook first and a website to go with it. This can be done with spending only a few dollars ( it can be done free too, but I would not suggest that) and it takes only a few days to set up ( not counting the writing of the book

Sorry, I accidentally posted tge reply befire finishing it. Here is the rest: Pick a domain name and buy it at Godaddy. Then pick a hosting service. Go with something cheaper in the beginning as you won't have that many visitors. Build your website on Wordpress, which is really beginner friendly. Then you would need to pick a theme that is designed for 1 product pages. You would need a cover design ( if you need one for free, i'd love to do it) then a nice landing page, where you present your book. This will be a nice platform to market your book in an electronic format.

As the moderator said you should make friends, interact with the reading/writing communities, use social media to it's best. I can not give you a step by step process but if you want you can check out this post: http://news.pagebacker.com/news/403-self-publishing-books-101 If you are not willing to spend on this book then you can check it out on slideshare here: http://www.slideshare.net/HeatherHart/self-publishing-books-101

The world of publishing has its own sort of karma system; that is, the process is to engage with communities, make friends, share links, and ultimately build your profile. That's how I started Pagebacker and that's the same process you would take to get anything "out there."
