Can you give advice or write a hub on self publishing please?
I have read and enjoyed two of your gardening books - and you clearly know your onions.
My book will be ready for proof reading and review at the end of November, and I am going down the self publishing route. Any advice please?
Lulu Publishing are well thought of. Then promote it in your local library, garden centres, gardens of interest.
My friend wrote a gardening book, published it through Lulu, then bought a few copies and gave free classes at the library. Always had a few books on the table for sale, and when those were gone, she took names or gave them the URL to buy one. She sold over 1,000 books that way, and made some new gardening friends. You have to get creative when you self-publish, especially on a niche topic.
I just wrote a hub on self publishing!
Do your research of course, but I think you'll find it informative.

I started looking into self-publishing as an alternative, but it's...

Hi, everyone. Thank you in advance for reading; this is a little long-winded.When I was a kid, I loved writing books. I'd sit at the computer for hours, typing. I knew I was going to be a writer one day. Even my elementary school teacher said I had talent. When I was 22 I got a publishing contract...
