As I get closer to the publication of my second book (Woken Kingdom: Cygnus Curse), I've been relying on my digital publishing checklist to keep me on track. There is SO MUCH to do when self-publishing a novel, and when it's all swirling around in my head, the overwhelm builds to a point where I can't do anything. When the tasks are laid out in front of me, I can better build a timeline - and it's not so scary!

I won't lie: I'm a bit of an IS hater😳 Yes, IS is incredibly important to indie authors, and we're very lucky to have it. But so many people I know have had nightmares with it! I want to stress this to new authors: give yourself more time than you think you need for this part of the publishing process. It's certainly not as simple as uploading it and clicking 'publish'! Want some guidance with self-publishing? Check out my services here :) https://www.poppyspagesediting.com/self-publishing Blurb Book, Young Adult Fiction, Book Marketing, Ingram, Authors, Guidance

Self-publishing can be incredibly overwhelming (I've just done it myself, so I'm even MORE aware of this now!) especially if you're completely new to the industry. But as long as you can learn from your mistakes and make use of the many resources online, it gets easier with time and practise. I love helping authors with self-publishing their work, so if you're looking for some coaching, send me a message or visit my website :) Learn From Your Mistakes, Just Do It, Imprinting
