I begin the self publishing journey

This is hopefully going to be an ongoing description of my journey from unpublished author to self published author. I am not a failure. The reason I am choosing the self-publishing route is because I want to retain control of the publishing process and of my own manuscript. I have already had some articles published, and I had a publisher take an interest in a sample chapter of a non-fiction book I sent to be considered.

Getting published is not always easy. But it is getting easier.

But I want this project to be special to me. I want to be able to choose the font, the layout and spacing, to edit the text, to add some pictures perhaps.

I have chosen to self publish with Getting Yourself Published, a local publishing partner. I'll describe here in due course how I am getting on.

  1. Tom Corson-Knowles, the author who founded Bestseller Ranking Pro, spent six long years trying to get a traditional publishing deal (and failed miserably). He finally decided to self publish his first book on Kindle in February, 2012.

    That one decision changed his life (and the lives of the more than 30,000 authors he's since taught how to write, publish and market their books professionally).

    Just twelve months after self publishing his first book, Tom had his first $12,000+ month from Kindle ebook royalties alone.

    In Bestseller Ranking Pro, Tom will share with you his step-by-step system for becoming a bestselling author.

    These strategies have also helped Tom and his private publishing clients create more than sixty-seven #1 Amazon bestselling books and counting.
