How I Self-Publish My Books (And How You Should Self-Publish Yours)
By ALLi Director Orna Ross
“There is no right way to self-publish,” says Orna. “There is only your way. This book shares what I’ve learned through observing countless ALLi members, and other self-publishing authors, navigate the territory. It brings you through, step-by-step, how I’ve chosen to do what I do, across ebook, print books and audio, fiction, non-fiction and poetry. It shares my motives and my methods but it is also a workbook that offers checklists and planners for each step, allowing you to work out your preferred pathway to publication too.”
