Top tips from a self-publisher

John Betcher is publishing a series of top tips for self-publishers, in batches of 5 at at a time.

It’s all good stuff. John seems to do a lot of experimentation, and then reports back on how things worked out, warts and all.

What this means is that the blog is very honest. I think a lot of people, myself included sometimes, feel embarrassed at our “failures”. The biggest failure, though, is not venturing to try things out in the first place.

John’s posts are rather USA-centric, but I think the advice probably holds for the UK as well.

His first set of 5 tips covers ebooks and print-on-demand. His second set is more concerned with having a presence on the internet. Each will take you only a few minutes to read, but is packed with information.
