There have been no changes in the book business in the last ten years that have been more exciting than the introduction of eBooks and the rise of independent self-publishing.

From the self-publication of my book

When I interviewed several hundred agencies (and some of them several time over the years) and applied for numerous competitions, I made up my mind enough: I wanted to publish this book alone. I discharged Chick Lit (And Other Formulas for Life) into the worid on September 16, 2015.

It is a different place than just a few years ago. The way we look at a blogs entry faster than in a bookshop has seen a change in what makes a readership (and an author). Self-editing was once seen as a last and last distressed effort by a novelist who could not make it in the actual life.

I' ve probably seen my script about twenty different envelopes. When I began to write the check list of things I had to do to publish my book correctly, I immediately withdrew into the editorship. You' re the author, you' re the editor, you' re the publishers - and you' re also the PR representative, the marketer, the economic smog.

Will I employ someone to reformat my book or do I do it myself? Do I need to post my book on a plattform like IngramSpark or should I contact any retailing organization? Nothing summarizes how mad I must have seemed to the outsider, how the picture of me, how I sit on my ground with my legs turned crosswise, a pile of book to my lefthand, with a torn book in one palm and a rule in the other.

Measure edges and book sizes to see how a 300-page book looks in one format compared to a 500-page book in another. Everything from where the page numbers are, to the typefaces and distances they use. 6 ) Every move forward is unbelievably discouraging, so remain organised. To do something for the first and for the first means that every move forward is a leap into the unfamiliar.

There it was essential to write what I had to do - in the order I had to do it. One thing I didn't miss when I chose to publish myself was the never-ending flow of rejections I would get from the submission of my script to literature-agent and contest.

One thing I didn't realise was that as a self-publisher I still had to be out there - only that instead of entering my book into agency and competition, I would submit it to reviews, newsletters, and other literature sites, many of which wouldn't even consider publishing a book themselves.

Yes, there was a great deal I did alone without the help of an agency, a publisher, a PR company.... but without the relatives and boyfriends who help me, I wouldn't be where I am today. This is one of the reasons why I like the word "independently published".

I' ve written this book independently of the majorstream publisher-community. I' m sure I didn't publish it myself. I' m writing because there were days when I stood at a traffic lights and wrote something angrily in my notepad and angrily angered the folks behind me when I didn't realize the lights had turned amber.

Typing is one of the most annoying and ungrateful efforts you can make on a voluntary basis. It is a dream in a universe where "everyone writes" and "nobody reads" - where it can be as much of a dream as becoming a musician... we keep going because it is our love.

For the most part, I had been in production for ten years and knew that I would probably never make ten years of profit from it. Maybe it's timid enough to take this timid move forward and publish your work.
