Can you actually "self"-publish a book -- that is, do it all yourself? Well, yes, you can. But it's not a good idea.
Serious writers using self-publishing techniques view themselves much like independent filmmakers: their job is to pull together the professionals they need to produce a work of highest quality, and to act as creative director for their own project. At the end of the process, their virtual team disbands and everyone moves on to other projects.
I’m passionate about working with writers who want to bring great books to readers in this manner. If you’re one of those writers, I want to work with you. I will explain the options available to you, and work with you to create a roadmap that takes you from manuscript to published book– hardcover with dust jacket, ebook, audiobook or softcover book. I will also help you source the experienced professionals you need–editors, designers and marketers–to produce a book that can compete with traditionally published books in today’s marketplace. And I will serve as your advisor throughout the publishing process.
