How do you turn a file saved on your computer into AN ACTUAL BOOK? How do you get that book on Amazon? Or in bookstores? What about libraries?
This episode takes you through the process of publishing your book and getting it out into the world.
You might also want to listen to the episodes Why Self-Publish? and Talking to Dana Kelly about “Your Book, Your Brand.”
Here are two more resources I mention in the podcast:
- The Independent Book Publishers Association’s Industry Standards Checklist for a Professionally Published Book
- Veronica Ewing’s portfolio
Also, when I started writing the show notes, I found out that Amazon might be phasing out CreateSpace in favor of offering a new “print-on-demand paperback” service through Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing. (This industry changes so quickly!) The basic information in the podcast should still apply!
