If your passion is writing, speaking, or teaching because you want to make a contribution and impact the lives of others, self-publishing can be a richly rewarding endeavor. Self-Publisher’s Book Plan guides you in how to publish your nonfiction book using customized, step-by-step Action Plans at your own pace, in a way that reflects your personal style.

Dozens of books on the market today contain overwhelming amounts of information on writing techniques, preparing a manuscript, print on demand services, page layout programs, e-book conversion, and book marketing. Sorting through the mountains of facts, generalized advice, and how-to tips can be daunting to a first-time author/publisher. The Self-Publisher’s Book Plan cuts the confusion and saves you time by guiding you from polishing your manuscript to publishing and selling your book—all at your own pace and in a way that reflects your personal style. You won’t find a one-size-fits-all approach between these covers. Instead you learn how to devise your own customized plan for your particular manuscript, including its genre and market position. Everything you need to plan, publish, and create a great experience for your readers can be found in these pages.

Here’s what you will find in Self-Publisher’s Book Plan:

  • How to choose book models you want to emulate
  • How to develop your manuscript with the help of editors
  • How to research and make a list of competitive titles in your book’s genre
  • How to compare the best publishing options for your book
  • How to prepare a print production budget
  • How to increase book sales by adding e-book formats
  • How to plan for sales and marketing
  • How to assemble your team of professional contractors

    "One of the most well-organized and thoughtfully presented guides to self-publishing on the market. Whiting carefully walks the reader through every critical step in what can be an overwhelming process and provides a much-needed resource for those just starting out. A must have for aspiring authors and self-publishers."

    —Stacie Vander Pol, author of Top Self Publishing Firms

    “The best part of Lindsay Whiting's Self-Publisher's Book Plan is her action steps at the end of each chapter. Very useful.”

    —John Kremer, author of 1001 Ways to Market Your Books

    “In Self-Publisher's Book Plan, Lindsay Whiting has compiled one of the most helpful publishing books out there. It is easy down-to-earth reading, not just theory. The section on non-bookstore marketing is right on the mark.”

    —Brian Jud, author of How to Make Real Money Selling Books and Beyond the Bookstore

    "Everything self-publishers need to plan, publish, and begin promoting their books can be found in these pages. The resource section alone is worth the price."

    —Rick Frishman, author of 12 books including The AUTHOR 101 Series
