James, as usual, has some excellent points, ideas, and examples. He talks about getting out that best seller.
I’ve self-published many of my books, including my three best-selling books: “Choose Yourself“; “Reinvent Yourself“, and the “Choose Yourself Guide to Wealth“.
One person once wrote me, “Do you only self-publish because no publisher wants your books.”
I didn’t write back. He was mean! But I’ll answer here: No.
Maybe back in 2011 I didn’t want to go through the process (AGAIN) of begging a publisher to publish my 7th or 8th book.
I love self-publishing. I will tell you why. I hope you do it as well.
Why do I hope you do it? I don’t really know. Maybe you feel you need “permission” from editors, agents, peers, publishers, marketers, bookstores.
Maybe this is a love letter to my dear friend: you don’t need permission. You are special and worthy of love without it.
I’m going to list the reasons why I like to self-publish, how to get started on writing, and whether or not there is any negatives.
James’s encouragement and insight led me to the world of publishing after a decade or indecisiveness and procrastination. His ideas also reinvigorated this blog. (So, blame him…)
Speaking of blogging, etc. – does anyone of you have any experience with Patreon? I’m thinking about launching a page there. Any ideas? Comment here, FB, or email me. (And I’m looking for actual experience; if you have to Google the term, you know less than I do). Thanks!
