Are you harbouring a desire to finally write that bucket-list novel? Do you already have a published paperback that you want to convert to an eBook and sell online?
Every writer’s journey is different. Every Path to publishing your painstaking work is both hard but enjoyable work. It is said that you cannot learn from other people’s knowledge, and while this may be true, we can all benefit from advice and experience.
My Writing Process is a 26-page booklet (PDF format) which takes you through my process of self-publishing an eBook. From the idea or concept of your novel through to the actual publishing of the finished product (there is also a small section on doing a print run if you chose to do that).
