Shelley Hitz is an award-winning and international best-selling author. However, she gives all the glory to God for what He is doing through her life. As she likes to say, “God is the author, I am simply the pen.” Shelley has been ministering alongside her husband, CJ, since 1998 and her main passion is to share God’s truth and the freedom in Christ she has found with others. She does this through her books, websites and speaking engagements.
She is also the co-owner of BodyandSoulPublishing.com where she shares free Christian books on her blog, owner of Self-Publishing-Coach.com where she helps authors get published and noticed and co-founder of CrossReads.com where Christian readers and authors meet.
The main reason Shelley writes and publishes Christian books is to share her testimony, use the gift of teaching God has given her and bring glory to God. Ironically, she never dreamed of being a published author and English was one of her worst subjects in school growing up. However, God is now using her weaknesses for His strength to impact many for eternity (2 Corinthians 12:9). She is humbled and amazed that He chooses to use her and her life goal is to keep her eyes fixed on Christ, the author and finisher of our faith (Hebrews 12:1-2). Shelley’s openness and vulnerability as she shares her own story of hope and healing through her books will inspire and encourage you.

Wow! What a mine of information for new self-publishing authors. The book starts out so gently and I told myself this isn't so bad, all this was done with my first book.
There are fourteen chapters, each chapter written by a different author, therefore offering varying points how to market your own book.
Each author talks about what's so important to all beginning writers-optimizing your book.
How do you make your book more visible on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, ect? Why your author's site, title pages, and keywords are important on being seen.
All what's written within the Fourteen chapters shows a new unknown author how to be more discoverable and not be hidden in the lowest pages of a search engine.
Make sure you have all that this book contains down pat and hopefully, sales of your book will soar.
But like it says in the very fist chapter-go slowly. Don't expect great happenings at first.
