15 Key Links When You want to Self-Publish Your Book

This week I decided to add the links that I used to self-publish my work, create my covers, ebook  publish, and so much more.I have done so much research as a writer/author, and can tell you first hand that I need to learn more. I hope that you will find these links helpful in your journey to becoming an author too.

The first few websites are writing community websites, and are great for meeting other authors, and writers that share your interests,and genres:

The next and some of the most important links in my list are bloggers that blog about writing, publishing, etc. These websites will help in some of the greatest ways possible, and most of them offer free ebooks in guiding you through some of the key elements in creating your masterpiece.

I hope that all of these websites help you out, as they have me in publishing my books, one of the few things that I recommend is getting your author platform built, and draw in an audience, you may be excited about getting your first book in print as I was, however if you don’t have an audience it will not sell that well. get a marketing plan, and gain a following, use social media to your advantage, share, share and share, if you find links like this above, and think it relevant add it to comments,and groups that you belong to, it will not only help your platform, but help out many of your peers as well.
