You are welcome to follow along as my own publishing company works the magic of marketing my self-published books toward the mainstream with inevitable detours along the way. It will be interesting and exciting. (This one is 558 pages, self-edited, covers self-designed, and worth the efforts because I learned a lot. As with foreign languages, the next one will be easier having done the last one.
We don't write them just for family and to see the extra copies sitting on a shelf somewhere.
Best wishes to all Hubbers traveling the same road and other routes to getting their own book sales.
Congratulations! How wonderful to have published a 3rd book. I can't wait to read more about it.
Congratulations! How very exciting, good luck with your publishing company marketing and book sales!
Congratulations! This is very inspiring because I'm working on my first eBook and I want everything to work out.
I feel inspired by your action. Congratulations and much success on your book sales!
Congrats! I'm starting my fifth self-published book and like you, I've learned a great deal along the way. Would I have more sales if I'd gone the professional editor route? Possibly? But I've watched other authors dole out the big bucks and have no more sales than me to show for their investment. There is so much help out there. The publishing world has really changed.
I must give credit where credit is due. A couple of hubbers here at HP have generously served as editors for me on my last two books, and I can't imagine better suggestions and keener eyes than they have. Can't thank them enough!
Congratulations and well done. Good luck with the promotion and marketing.

What are some ways you would promote your self-published book?I recently completed my first novel and went ahead and self-published through createspace. Now, how do I get the word out there? Is it even possible to do so? Would I have been better off trying to get the book traditionally published?...

So I've worked on my novel for the past 3 years, finally buckled down and finished it this year. Just recently published it on Amazon Kindle, and I'm so very excited about it. The thing is, I don't know how to promote myself in the best way. And I don't have a ton of $$$ to spend on website design...

Book cover for a self published bookWhere is the best place to have a cover made for an e book? Apparently even a self published book for the kindle should have an amazing cover.
