Are you or someone you know thinking of writing a book? Or in the process of writing? How are you planning on publishing? You might not want to hold out too much hope of a publishing contract – they’re getting harder and harder to come by these days.
Thanks to the internet, the Kindle, the iPad and print on demand technology, self publishing is rapidly becoming the acceptable way for people to share their thoughts and ideas. However, the Australian publishing industry has been slow to create pathways for Australians to access the best ebook and print on demand options so readily available to our Northern Hemisphere counterparts.
I have been helping Australian writers tread the self publishing path, to have their say and leave their mark on the world, since 2009. In Self publishing for Australian authors: What you need to have, know and do, I share my learnings (and many of my opinions!), summarising the steps to take and questions you need to ask yourself if you wish to venture down the self publishing path.
Rather than a ‘how to’ guide, this book is more of a ‘what’s it all about guide’, and has been designed to provide you with the right information so that you can work out which path (if any) is right for you.
Originally published in 2016, the industry has still managed to change enough in the following three years that it was worth updating this in 2019.
