Author Publishing Resources

 

Resources are a must in the world of self-publishing. Here are some I’ve gathered that offer information that will add value to the book you are writing. If you have resources you wish to share… please contact me and I’ll see about adding them to the list. —Best Success.

The book cover design, self-publishing, copyright and printing processes certainly have their moments. With the proper guidance and resources helping, it will seem easier. I’ve posted some websites below to assist with the process. They include resources for author groups and affiliations, writing assistance, printing and printers, general publishing how-to and info gathering sites. Contact me if you have any questions about vendor services.
