Today is a quick post, but I wanted to share a great resource I recently discovered: "Successful Self-Publishing" by Joanna Penn, an indie author who has written several books to aid beginner indie authors and is a fiction author as well. HERE is the link for her book. It is fantastic for the beginner author who isn't sure whether self-publishing is the right route for them, or the author who needs to expand their income sources. It also involves some of the more legal sides of publishing and websites for inexpensive stock photos for covers, even links for design crews suitable for the beginner, budget-strapped writer. I found this book to be very insightful for publishing resources, both in print and digitally. She also includes information in her book about the writing resources she includes on her websites and a class she's develped specifically for indie authors. For $7, this book is an extremely helpful guide for beginner authors who are seeking self-publishing tips. I have several pages in my planner filled with only some of the resources she provided!
What are some helpful writing books you've read lately? Do you plan to check out any of Joanna Penn's books? Who's planning on taking the plunge into self-publishing this year? Sound off in the comments below!
