Self publishing tips

Publish my book tricks for new and known authors? Get Your Book Edited: Professional editing is a must. No book is perfect, but editorial assistance can help you get a lot closer. There are a lot of different kinds of edits, so be sure you know which you need before you hire an editor. Developmental editors check your book for flow and consistency. They suggest revisions when something about the language doesn’t seem right. Copyeditors correct spelling mistakes and adjust grammar. Editors are necessary in the self-publishing process.

Editing: Often overlooked, it is vital to have a professional editor review your book. One of the biggest criticisms of self-published books is their lack of editing. We have provided a list of editors for your convenience. Pay for professional cover design: In this day of “do it yourself,” many self-publishers do not consider the negative impact a poorly designed cover may have on sales. Professional cover design will get you noticed as a legitimate player in the industry.

Keep in touch with your fans. As bestselling writer Bella Andre told DBW (Digital Book World): When I released my first original self-published story (LOVE ME) in July 2010 I took a week and wrote a personal email to everyone who had ever written to me in the previous five years. Almost every one of them wrote back to say, “Wow, I can’t believe you still had my email!” LOVE ME was a sequel to a book that Pocket had put out in 2005 (TAKE ME). For five years readers sent me email asking for the sequel. It was a thrill to finally be able to give it to them.
