This book is your one stop guide to publishing your book on multiple e-book platforms, print on demand and audio. Inside you’ll find detailed walkthroughs on the process itself, the websites you’ll need to use and extensive advice on the process. Here’s what I could do – I could promise you everything. The sun, moon and stars will be yours to command. If you read my book, you will be the next big author, and you’ll make so much money that you’ll have no choice to give it all away because you can’t possibly spend it all in one lifetime. I’m not going to do that. Why? Because that’s exactly what all the other books, websites and so-called experts do, and it’s simply not true. Here’s what I will do – I will guide you through the entire process from start to finish. I’ll use my experience from the last several years to help you avoid the mistakes that I (and many other indie authors) have made and still make. I’ll offer you all the advice I can, and with any luck (and a lot of hard work) you’ll publish a book!
