A number of years ago, I made the decision to write and publish independently of a publishing house. There are certainly a lot of opinions out there, but perhaps the biggest reason I made this decision was because I wanted to keep creative control over my own work, it was my name on the cover after all. And nothing against traditional publishing houses, that route just didn’t feel right for me.
So are you exploring the world of self-publishing or already far more involved than me? If you’re looking for some help, I’d like to suggest Reedsy.
Reedsy is an amazing platform for self-published authors that provides everything you need from free classes and webinars to editors, cover artists, illustrators, blogs, marketing and even free formatting of your book for both ebook (.mobi and .epub) and print books.
This is a super friendly platform that is amazingly helpful. One of the founders even just put out a free book on Amazon all about marketing.
