Do you want to successfully self-publish in ebook, print or audiobook formats?

Ebook edition. Delivered by Bookfunnel, read on any device.

There are thousands of new books being published every day, but many self-published books quickly sink to the bottom of the pile.

Many authors are frustrated because there are so many options for self-publishing, and they don’t know which one to choose or what will be best for their book. Others spend thousands of dollars to publish and end up broken-hearted with the result.

But it doesn’t have to be this way.

I’ve spent over a decade self-publishing bestselling fiction and non-fiction books and in 2011, I left my day job to become a full-time author entrepreneur. I’ve made lots of mistakes along the way, but through the process of self-publishing over 30 books, I’ve learned the most effective way to publish and market your books. In this book, I’ll share everything with you.

This was very helpful for me going step by step through what I needed to think about and do to self-publish my book.


Very easy process of getting this book. Can’t wait to read

Michaela Witters
Very informative with links to additional help

I appreciate the practical overview of the process as well as the specific tools / companies / resources mentioned.
I have two books published by a traditional publisher in Slovakia - one of them is a national bestseller, the other one is for a small nieche for adopted children. I am looking for ways how to expand to the English speaking market and this book was a useful introduction of things I need to consider. I have realized things work quite differently in Slovakia and in UK/ USA. Thank you Joanna. :-)

A good primer to self-publish

The title is self-explanatory, yet I found so much more insight in the book than I thought I would. Not only did I learn – in this revised edition – that ITINs are no longer necessary to publish on Amazon (you only need your tax number from your own country), I also learned a couple of nifty tricks to grow my backlist and up my publishing game.

I definitely recommend this to other authors thinking of going Indie (a much nicer term than self-publisher, don’t you think?). Now to read other books by Joanna for intrepid author-entrepreneurs
