I'm fantasizing about saving money to go toward self-publishing my first novel sometime in the future. This is just a fantasy goal and it's probably not realistic, but I was wondering what would be the best use of money if I was able to save that much over time. I know the big-ticket items are: Hiring an editor Art design for book cover and promotion Advertising Possibly hiring someone to read the audiobook version If you had 5k just to self-publish your book, how would you spend it? Which of these categories would get the biggest chunk of change? submitted by /u/lillielemon [visit reddit ..read more

I submitted my ebook pre-order with Amazon about six days ago and it is still under review. I reached out to Amazon who said they'd have their content team email me, but I haven't heard anything. I just wanted to see if anyone else has run into this issue because it's making me incredibly nervous that there is an issue with my book. submitted by /u/sm09193 [visit reddit] [comments ..read more

Using lines from the book in the blurb?
Reddit » Self Published Writers

I've been struggling to nail the blurb for the fantasy novel I'm soon to be publishing. The original draft felt exceptionally bland and overly straightforward, and I thought adding a punch in the form of a line from the book itself would fix that. Unfortunately, my main character is not a wordsmith, and there really wasn't a single line that felt solid out of context. That said, there was a pretty powerful dialogue that felt good to include and gave a decent snapshot into the type of characters and story I'm crafting. I'd love opinions on the blurb and also thoughts on the overall inclusion o ..read more

Thoughts on changing audience age within a series

Hey all, I have a question and wanted to see if other authors have thoughts on this, or maybe even firsthand experience. I'm writing a science fantasy series for adults (mc is 26). Except for the mc age, which I'm unwilling to change, it could basically be YA. There's a small bit of language and jalapeño level romance. The mc of the first 3 books is 26, but there is a teen character that I'd like to give her own book in the series. She'd be 18 by that point. Would it be acceptable to write/market the 18yo mc book as YA when the rest of the series is new/young adult? Just looking for thoughts ..read more

Public Library Association Worth it?

Wondering if anyone has experience or thoughts with a book display at the Public Library Association show. I'm thinking of paying for the book display and the catalog ad - together about $500. My goal would be to get on the radar of librarians and more access in libraries, but just not sure that I wouldn't get lost in the noise. My book is an upper middle grade adventure. I am working on school libraries, reading programs, etc. submitted by /u/FewEngine6684 [visit reddit] [comments ..read more

I don't use Facebook, but I didn't know if there were any companies worth giving a shot to run ads for books. From what I hear most of them are money pits and don't work but this was a few years ago. submitted by /u/sirenpro [visit reddit] [comments ..read more

Curious: how many of you are non-fiction authors? most of what I'm reading here seems to be coming from the fiction side of the library...

I've just finished writing my first book, a non-fiction tour through the Minor Prophets in the Jewish/Christian Scriptures. Much of what I see here about publishing seems to be written from the perspective of fiction writers. Any thoughts on publish from the viewpoint of non-fiction authors or publishers? Just curious - thanks! submitted by /u/Pastoredbtwo [visit reddit] [comments ..read more

I have two ads running on Facebook at the moment, and I've received a lot of these types of DMs through messenger lately. These are 100% scams, and please, do not give them any more thought than to delete/block the sender.
