I have a new book called The Self-Publishing Manual, Create and Publish your Own Print and e-Book. Available on Amazon.

The Self-Publishing Manual takes you through the book publishing process from beginning to end. It answers your questions and shows you how to publish your book. The book is organized into three parts.

Part 1 covers key publishing questions such as where do I publish? How do royalties work? What is an ISBN number? How to create a KDP/Kindle Print Book or a Kindle E-Book and how does copyright work?

Part 2 is an overview of the creating and publishing process. The Self-Publishing Manual breaks it down into 12 clear and easy to understand steps. We start by creating the content, then design and layout, and finally publishing and marketing.

The Self-Publishing Manual includes three checklists, the Self-Publishing Checklist, the Launch and Marketing Checklist, and the Best-seller Checklist.

Part 3 is the bonus section, we learn how to launch our book as an Amazon best-seller. How to create a book using my Top Ten Technique and we wrap up with a publishing resource list. The Self-Publishing Manual contains the latest information on KDP/Kindle publishing.

Bruce's latest book is Book Marketing Checklist for Self-Publishing, which went to # International Best Selling status in three countries this spring. The book is about how to market and launch your book on Amazon.com. It includes many of the tasks that you will need to do to launch and have a successfully selling book. Including three levels of book launching action plans. One of the most common questions I get asked by new authors is “What’s Next?” They have pushed the published button and launched their book on Amazon.com and then go what do I do now? Books don’t market themselves just because you are on Amazon. You need to be involved on a regular basis with getting your book out to the world and getting people to buy it. This is true wither you are an indie author or you have a publishing company behind you. Books need to be marketed in order to find customers. Book Marketing Checklist for Self-Publishers tells you how.
