Welcome to the second of our series of blog posts, summarizing our Self-Publishing Checklists. This one will cover building your manuscript files and choosing which Print-on-Demand services you want to publish with. If you missed it, here's the first in our series, which covers all of your publishing prep work.
We’ve put together this guide to help authors through the process of self-publishing. Our goal is to give you a framework to hopefully make the task of publishing your book seem just a little less daunting. Remember that this isn’t meant to be the only way to get a book published, and won’t include all of the information you will need (that would be difficult to list in one place). However, where it’s lacking, we’ve included links to outside websites and blog posts that we’ve found helpful.
we wish you luck on your publishing journey!
