25 Self-Publishing Services and Advice #IndieAuthor #GetPublished

I put together some links so anyone considering self-publishing a book can get started, but I do recommend doing additional research. There is a lot to learn, but there is a lot of free advice online to guide you, too.



Here are some sites to be better informed on how to self-publish a book yourself. (I would avoid hiring any POD or vanity presses.)
