Now, I'm still learning the ropes and not about to say that I am a success story just yet. Beyond the challenge of holding down a job (or three) and actually writing and completing a novel, the challenge to get anything out into the world is, well, challenging.
If you're self publishing, you're likely to be embarking on a huge undertaking and learning curve.
The good news is that there's a lot of great information around if you look for it.
I don't have any intention of reinventing the wheel, or taking any credit away from the deserving people I'm about to cite. They've helped simply by sharing the information they have, so I'm going to on share.
What I will say is that if I'd known thinking about these 8 things before I sat down to write would've made things a bit easier, I definitely would have.
