Projects: Self-Publishing

IMAGENAMEHERE(Image: Doug Wilson, animator.

In the early days of printing, authors delivered their manuscripts to printers and the printers were book sellers. An example of today’s online version of this is to be found at

Authors do their own editing, typesetting and design then upload their .pdf files to Lulu who print books on demand. Authors then arrange their own book signings and other publicity.

Authors keen to self-publish should answer the following questions:

What is your Publishing Project?
What activities will help you to achieve it?
How much of each activity do you need to do?

and then:

Draw up a `to do` list for each activity.
Enter a time and date in your diary to action each outcome.

This `to do` list becomes your working tool which links all your activities together to bring about your publishing project.
