How to Self Publish Your Book:

Start off by writing down any key points you want to make in your book. Do a brain dump and just write down every point you can think of. You will not use all the points and you might add more later. Once you have an idea on what your book will be about, create a layout of how many chapters and titles (if you have them) and write within each chapter as you write vs. trying to write the total book then go back and break it into chapters. You can always move information around before your final draft.  I would suggest you set some time aside and write an hour or two every day.

 

(note) Before you start, I would encourage you to listen to the 8 videos on CreateSpace at the bottom.
