New Author Self Publishing Checklist

Becoming a self-published author means that you’re now in charge of writing, designing, printing and marketing your book. By being an independent author, you will not have the luxury of having a publisher or book agent handle all the nitty gritty on your behalf.

Books have been offering history, knowledge, inspiration and entertainment to readers for thousands of years.

But, take a look at 99% of books published throughout history. Are they telling your story? Do they tell the story of your ancestors? Your Culture?Books are special because they carry the history of a people, or culture through time. However, what happens when only a selected few stories are told, by a select few cultures.

Thousands of stories are lost to time. Never to be heard of or seen again.
