Indie Publishing 101: What NOT to Do

Indie Publishing 101: What NOT to Do

Over the past few weeks I’ve talked about the pros and cons of both traditional and indie publishing, what’s really involved in self-publishing, and what you can get away without.

Now, most of the posts in this series are going to be about indie/self-publishing, because that’s what I have the most experience with, but this post is all about Continue reading “Indie Publishing 101: Traditional vs. Independent Publishing”
