"I want to publish my book, but I don't know how to do it. Please help me." 

In my How to Publish Your Book Facebook Group, I get some version of this question more than any other. Usually, the book is written, but not published. The question is, where do I start? What do I do? How do I publish my book? I have just published, now what do I do? These are big and often confusing questions. So, let’s dive in and see if I can give you some direction and a basic overview of how you can publish your book.

How to Self-Publish Your Book, Create, Publish & Sell Your Book, is an updated and revised version of my previous how-to publishing books.

Lots of new marketing info, more in-depth e-book info, and additions to how to launch a best-selling book.
