Self-published authors in our day of easy POD and Kindle Direct Publishing are a dime a dozen, but successful self-publishers are the cream of the crop. The question for every would-be author is, How do I move from being a self-published author to being a successful self-publishing icon?
It’s not a difficult formula. It’s actually quite simple. That doesn’t mean it is easy.
Here’s your 7-step recipe for increasing your chances at being successful in your self-publishing endeavors.
There is no tried-and-true method for success in any endeavor. You have to follow your own path. Your No. 1 priority should be in producing high quality fiction, poetry, or non-fiction. If other publishers see value in it, then you are more likely to succeed as a self-publisher.
