Self-Publishing

All writers desire to be published. In years past, it was often a dream that didn’t come true until many years and many manuscripts had fallen by the wayside. And some manuscripts were only published posthumously…

In this age of electronic publishing, writing is easier than it has ever been! Blogs, facebook, and other forms of media provide opportunities for authors to get started now.

Over the next while, I will begin featuring different authors who I know/know of personally and have self-published in a variety of content areas, as well as the links to their books.

 

There are a variety of self-publishing options. Before you get started, be sure to do some research on it!
