I've been noticing that some very new writers are posing some old questions on the various writer discussion venues. There's nothing wrong with that, understand. When each new batch of writers asks the same questions, I take it as a sign that these are important issues.
So maybe it's time to re-circulate some of the answers.This checklist comes from Shelley Hitz at self-publishing-coach.com. She says:
"Self publishing is a comprehensive task. Actually there are several steps involved: writing, pre-publication tasks, formatting, publishing and book marketing. To help you visualize the process, I've put together a "Self Publishing Checklist" report and mindmap. I'm a very visual person and a checklist like this really helps me wrap my mind around the process."
I'm happy to pass it along. Later this week, I'll be posting a series of comments on each of the sections for those of you who need more than a mindmap. Stay tuned.
