<< I will continually add to this list as I find more noteworthy info and please feel free to add comments with links or article suggestions! >>

The point, my friends, is that like anything worth doing, you want to take the time to self publish well.  Not just self publish.  Read, Research and then research some more!!   Don’t (DON’T) sign with just anyone because you get to sign or you may find you just signed away your rights to your book, your characters and/or your profit!!!   

Stay smart and safe friends!

  1. One thing that’s worth considering is why do you want to publish? There are lots of different reasons to publish, and self-publishing is better for some of them while traditional publishing is better for others.
