Writing a book is often the easiest part of publishing. In most cases only one person is involved in the initial creative processes of outlining and writing your first drafts. However, preparing and releasing your book to the world is another story. There are two routes.
The first is traditional publishing, where the imprint takes the risk and does most, if not all, the production and marketing.
The second is the independent, or self-publishing, route, where the writer takes the risk and commissions or does the production and marketing themselves.
I offer general publishing, production and PR advice about producing and marketing yourself and your book for traditional and self-publishing.
