I’ve found this infographic on one of my favorite blogs for writers and self-publishers, Nick’s Writing Blog.
The original title says “15 facts every self-publisher should know”, but I think this set of facts very well describes the state of self-publishing as such. We, self-publishers, try to learn how to better write, publish and promote our books, but there is a very long way to go to reach the desired quality.
Hire a professional editor.they’re worth it, Have a snazzy, beautifully-designed cover, Make your text clean and easy to read and Use a book manufacturer instead of a local printer.
Do you think this paragraph was written on purpose with so many mistakes? I don’t.
