Every time I say Self-Publish in the presence of a writer, I brace myself for a snicker.
Despite the length of it, and a few minor typos, in my opinion Aniruddha Pathak has done a pretty decent job of laying down the rules of engagement to be followed in self-publishing. What to expect, the dos and don’ts, and the chronological steps in the journey. To read the article hit the link below:
Most articles that I have read so far, leave out specifics such as company and people names, their genuine feedback is window dressed in political correctness & there are so many open ended, cliche gyan statements that the mind boggles.
Aniruddha, is specific and I for one appreciate his generosity of thought… This piece is truly informative.
My favorite parts:
- Rule of 7
- Importance of a professional editor- when to approach one, readiness, and what to expect (Neil D’Silva explains what a Editor would not and should not do)
- Info on free paperback publishing websites such as- Pothi, FreeSelfPublish, and White Falcon Publishing
- Paid Print-on-Demand publishing packages
All in all if an article tells me more than 3 useful bits of information and takes me less than 10-15 minutes to read, it is a job well done.
