Suitable for beginners or experienced self-publishers. I use graphics to help illustrate key points.

Both the eBook and print book are available on all the main online stores, and you can order the print book from any high street bookshop worldwide (delivery times may vary).

A quick note about the table of contents 

There is a top level Table of Contents with 30 chapters spread over two parts:

  • Part 1: Self-publishing
  • Part 2: Marketing

You will also have access to a hidden, password-protected resources folder with a more detailed Table of Contents showing sub-sections within those 30 chapters. This will be especially useful to print off to help you keep track of where you are if you have the Kindle/eBook version of this very long book. The resources folder also brings together useful links and example downloads that are included or referenced in the book – and I will be adding to it over time.

Below is the back cover, which I hope gives you a flavour of what to expect.

    Hi Karen, I recently bought your How To Self Publish book and left you a 5* review on amazon. It’s really useful, thank you, and I thoroughly recommend it. But there’s one thing I can’t understand, so pardon my ignorance with this question. How did you manage to garner SO many amazon reviews for your book, The Secret Lake? I see there are now nearly 9.000 on amazon. With a quick look I see Gangsta Granny has less (I think it was published around the same time as yours). Was it only using the methods that you outline in your book? Or is there another method that will be included in your updated version?
    On a slightly different topic, one thing I don’t remember you mentioning in your book is contacting amazon purchasers for reviews. (Sorry if I missed it among all the other extremely useful info!). Is this something you would recommend?
    many thanks for your time,
    Cress Howard
