Well, I think I’m going to take the plunge and self-publish Aquila – Can Silvanus escape that god? Keep a lookout for it in the next month or two!
The amount of advice different people and organisations give is somewhat overwhelming. And often aimed at relieving me of some of my precious solidi. Along the way, I’ve bought some tools, paid for some reviewers, had maps drawn, hired a cover designer and used UpWork to find a proofreader, joined several writers’ organisations, including Alli , which has proved to have excellent, unbiased information.
As regards publishing, the big names are KDP, CreateSpace and IngramSpark. Which one? Or all three? But before I get that far I need to make sure I know how to format my book correctly with Scrivener for both ebook and paperback.
It’s all quite a challenge.
