Several years ago I wrote two articles about ebook self-publishing online. I had decided to take my first two Print On Demand paperback books and self-publish them online. I felt I could do better than POD and save money. This was in 2010 and the digital ebook revolution was just starting. I haven't looked back since.
Recently, I decided to update my first two articles and write a third detailing what I have learned over the past two years on how to become a more successful Indie Author. I turned this into a Key Lessons Learned article. I think all three articles will help self-publish writers become more successful Indie Authors.
I don't define "success" as becoming rich. Very few Indie Authors have achieved bestselling status. I define success more simply as a self-published Indie Author who uses the right self-publishing tools and promotional methods to continually sell more ebooks each year. This is a hard won achievement, which I have learned by trial and error and with the help of other Indie Authors.
To make this experience public, I plan to introduce all three articles, two updated and a brand new article about self-publishing ebooks on my Blog Website. I hope the articles prove helpful to all Indie Writers who want to become more successful Indie Authors, especially those who are just beginning.
My first article is titled Self-Guide to Ebook Publishing – Practical Steps for Success! It was first published online in 2015. I have completely updated it to reflect my latest experiences in self-publishing. Post any comments you may have as this blog continues. I will reply to relevant comments or questions.
I write science fiction stories. I hope you like them.
