Daunted by Self-Publishing Platforms?


Here is a great post from C. S. Lakin’s remarkable blog, Live, Write, Thrive. If you are as daunted as I by all the venues out there for self-publishing, guest blogger Jessica Bell has some great information to share with you. Check it out. It’s a keeper, but then I think almost everything on this blog is. I’ve learned so much there, from grammar, to novel construction, to proper usage of similar words. Just everything. I highly recommend following!

    • I’m so glad it was helpful to you, Henrietta. I found it super interesting, and well explained. I printed out a handy reference copy, too. And I love, love, love Live, Write, Thrive. One of the most helpful blogs out there. I’ve learned so much from her. Be sure to browse through the archives there for topics you might enjoy. Thanks for reblogging, too. πŸ™‚

        • You’re most welcome. I just sent Ch15 of Finding Hunter off to my editor, and I’ve been working all afternoon on my PowerPoint Self-Publishing for Beginners presentation, scheduled for Sat, 7/10, at DeBary Hall. I’m looking forward to giving it, but I’m way behind on assembling all the parts, and handout sheets, etc. But I’ll get it done…if the bridge don’t go, an’ the creek don’t rise, as they say. πŸ˜‰ I’m wanting to reach a point where I can start my next book, Harbinger. Hopefully soon! It’s boring a hole through my brain! πŸ˜€


  1. I’ll second your recommendation to follow this blog – its been one of my favourite sites since I started researching self-publishing, 3 years ago now, and I’m still learn plenty from it, particularly in terms of narrative construction.

    • And she explains it in a clear, concise manner, with examples that show exactly what she means. It’s one of the best resources out there, I think. If I had to choose just ONE individual blog for helpful writing advice, Live, Write, Thrive would probably be it. Thankfully, I don’t have to do that, and can enjoy lots of them. Each has something unique to offer. But Lakin’s is my personal favorite.
