Since I announced my intention to self-publish my first novel, people have been asking me, “Why?”
The answer is a rather detailed mix of practical reasons, personality reasons, & ethical reasons. My Self-Publishing Manifesto linked below addresses most of these, but especially the latter.
For more of the practical reasons, I encourage you to spend some time over at 90 Days of Self Publishing to acquaint yourself with some of the mundanity of my decision.
If you’re wondering if Self-Publishing is the right path for you, check out my presentation Self-Publishing 101, which will walk you through the basics of building a book from scratch.
If you’re interested in more of the “why” download the free pdf below. It’s completely free and you can put it on your site, share it with friends, or whatever you want, as long as you keep the links intact and credit me with the writing of it.
