The Self-Publisher's Guide by Karen Cioffi

Today, as part of our December tour, I have the opportunity to do a little promoting for an e-book I created to help those new to the business of writing. With a saturated market, it can be difficult to find a traditional publisher for your manuscript. That said, this shouldn't stop you from trying!

But, for those who have special reasons for self-publishing, or just want to ensure your labor of love finds a home, this e-book will guide you along the road to publication and help you promote you and your book.

Here's a description of the Self-Publisher's Guide:

Do you dream of writing a book? Do you want to self-publish a book you’ve already written, but you’re not sure what to do? Do you need basic writing and promotional tips and guidance?

From Writing Your Book, to Self-Publishing Options, to Creating a Website, to Promotion - it's all included in this handy guide.

Topics include: learning to write, critique groups, being ready for publishing, choosing a publishing company, creating visibility through promotional strategies, bringing traffic to your site, resources, tools, and much more.

All for the price of a cup of coffee!

Here is a review from a very talented author:

Karen Cioffi’s, Self Publishing Guide, has everything you need to know to successfully publish your book. As one, who has gone through the process herself Ms. Cioffi spells out your options so you won’t waist time or money going in the wrong direction. This guide is full of great resources for every step of the publishing process.

Ms. Cioffi’s guidance doesn’t stop when your book is published. She gives you a clear marketing plan which includes starting a website, blog, and Virtual book tour. Article marketing, press releases, newspapers, email service companies, writing courses, and even social networking are just some of the subjects discussed in this valuable guide.

I highly recommend this guide for anyone considering self publishing or marketing a book.
