I just went through learning the hard way how to self-publish my book...It was a tedious process and I'm so happy I made it through...2 editors one robbed me blind and promised to help me set up e-book and left me hanging. So I was literally left to figure it out on my own
Learned how to format my book for Amazon
Learned how to Copy Right my book and get ISBN etc.
Learned all about where to get formats for e-books for Barnes Noble..Kindle, and Smashwords
I'm exhausted and wonder if it will all be worth it someday! I guess it's safe to say I completed a dream without a traditional publisher, regardless the outcome, I'm proud to say I'm finally officially an Author
I'm an amateur but I had a story to tell and the passion to stick with it...Long hours, drive, and of course money made my dream come true! Don't ever give up on your dream...If there is a will there is a way! Good luck to all of the passionate first time authors..if I can do it ...you can do it!
