How Did You Learn It?
Posted by

Hi. I self-published 2 books of my own and discovered a niche business, publishing other people using the tools of self-publishing. 

When I started, 2 1/2 years ago, I learned by doing. I didn't find anything that gave me the basic nuts and bolts. I still haven't seen that anywhere. At a writers workshop, I presented a step-by-step list and was actually surprised at how many people appreciated it. I've been asked to do it again, for another group. 

I bought the 2015 Guide to Self-Publishing (Writer's Digest) for $30 because I feel I need to keep up and I maintain a professional reference library. I have discovered that it doesn't have the nuts and bolts stuff, either. 

So how did you learn to do it? Would you have paid $1.99 for a pdf download with the detailed information?
