Self-Publishing Your Book: A Guide for First-Time and DIY Authors

Rated 5.00/5 based on 2 reviews
I am the author of 8 books -- 3 paperbacks and 8 ebooks. Overall I have been successful in getting my books published and sold. However, I did make mistakes and learned some valuable lessons along the way. This book is far from a complete resource on how to write, publish and market your books. The purpose of my book is to share with you my insights and experiences in publishing my books. More

Review by: Gary R. C. Cameron on Aug. 8, 2014 :
"SELF-PUBLISHING YOUR BOOK: A Guide for First-Time and DIY Authors" by Roger Ellerton really is a five-star value. I have read and given as gifts Roger's first three books in soft-cover, and sold his PARENTS HANDBOOK after presenting an NLP seminar with the money-back guarantee the book would be worth it --no one asked for money back, not even the only one who returned the book as she knew she had more than its worth and would not be finishing it. Roger's new ebook on publishing is wonderfully organized, easy to read, and rich in resources from start to finish.
It is too good not to share, and will be a welcome gift to all of my would-be-writer friends.

Review by: Dorothy May Mercer on Jan. 30, 2014 :
Roger Ellerton's "Self-Publishing Your Book: A Guide for First-Time and DIY Authors" is definately a "must-have" for self-publishers and authors into marketing their own books. For only 99 cents, it is a "steal," packed full of useful tips and guidance. Regardless of where you are in the process, you will find something of use.
It is a quick read, but, also, a good reference work to keep around. In clearly artiuclated language, Roger give guidance in many areas of publishing and marketing, as well as numerous helpful links to other web sites.
As a long-time writer and publisher of fifteen novels and numerous articles on self-publishing,, I still learned many things from this guide,including enough new marketing ideas to keep me busy for a year. Thank you, Roger, for your help.
