EPS 109: The Art of Self-Publishing Your Book (and behind the scenes of mine)

0  comments

The art of self-publishing your book…is right here.

Something delicious arrived in my mailbox last week.

Something so delicious, that I didn’t think I could deal with the excitement.

But I did deal. And I went inside with my parcel and I breathed deeply, and I opened it. 

And inside…was my third book: Suck It Up, Princess: Real life strategies to be the heroine you already are and have the money, success and life you deserve.

The real, beautiful, gorgeousness of almost 12 months of work, right there in my hands.

This is a full-on sensory experience. The smell and feel of it…it’s incredible. In fact, you can see exactly what I’m talking about right here, and then start dreaming up your own seeing-your-book-for-the-first-time moment.

That new book smell; the silky feel of the pages; my words right there in black and white.

And I published it totally on my own! That’s what I want for you.

I want you to have control over your book. What it looks like, sounds like and reads like.

There are so many platforms for you to use to get this done – so, why not?

And here’s the thing – I’ve done it all for you! 

This episode of the UNTAPPED podcast is jam-packed with ins and outs of everything you need to do to get your book written, edited and self-published. This is the juiciness that comes with the art of self-publishing your book.

I’m talking finances, marketing, publishing, the whole lot! The beauty of this is that you get to make the decisions. And you get to interact with people who have invested in your book and your journey before it’s even happened. 

In this episode we uncover: 

  • The power of crowdfunding and how you can leverage it for the good of your book
  • My latest book, Suck It Up, Princess, which is hugely personal and will connect you with your dreams of self-improvement and living life on your own terms
  • All the platforms and tools (and people!) that I’ve used to pre-fund, edit, design, format, publish and distribute my book; and
  • What the real beauty is of writing and birthing your damn book.
