Take all my stars!

I'm always emphasizing on the importance of documenting your journey while trying your luck in a completely different field than your brain was adjusted to and this exemplary project sets a standard. An evidence of perfection and sheer focus.

Reading "Because" by Jack (Author's husband), I had no idea that I will be getting to read their publishing journey as well. Writing a novel is a tremendous task and getting it published and marketing is a huge process in itself. Gone are

This is an absolutely excellent book for any aspiring author wondering how self-publishing works and how to go about it. And yes, there are a few tips and tricks in here that those who've already taken the plunge will find helpful as well.

The author writes in a clear, conversational style, detailing the self-publishing journey she and her husband undertook to get his first fiction novel on the market, and sharing with the reader all the things that they learned along the way. Beginning with a cl

Recommends it for: new or intending self-publishers
Shelves: reviewed
Self-publishing is now a very accepted way to bring your novel to market – even the most successful authors like JK Rowling are using this approach. However, writing a novel to the standards demanded by readers is, in many writers minds, the biggest and principle issue they face. As a self-published author of twelve books, believe me when I say that writing an attention-grabbing story, though significant, is only one step to becoming a successful author. The demands of the self-publishing proces ...more

Everything about practical and realistic way to self-publish your book!

pp. 26-27 alone is worth a million dollars with great instructions that make it really possible for any realistic person to actually self-publish one.

The book's full of realistic and practical advises from the first step (writing) to the last (marketing) with precise descriptions and examples, truly valuable knowledge obtained from her own successful experience and expertise in self-publication.

Like her amazing life story tha

First of all: I've received my copy through the Goodreads Giveaways.

I liked this book. It is not just about how the author learned the publishing process: the book contains a lot of useful tips, checklists and downloadable material you can use if you want to publish a book yourself.

One thing I miss though is LeanPub which is a self-publishing platform too. Perhaps it is covered in the second book of this series because I've read a small opinion about something similar what LeanPub does.

I'll defi

Many aspiring authors don't only have a writer's block to overcome, but the hurdles to get their book published as well. In times like these, you can use the help of people like Virginia Cam who provided her husband answers to the many questions he had regarding editing, formatting, and publishing debut novel. It's an exciting time: anyone can self-publish with options like print only, printing on demand, e-book only, or a mixture of media. Cam currently has two books in the Because Self-Publish ...more

‘Let’s get started on your publishing journey!’

Author V.V. Cam has a fascinating history – she and her family had to flee Vietnam to Hong Kong by boat when she was just 13 and in Hong Kong she was housed in a prison that had been turned into an overcrowded refugee camp. That was where she started her journey to become the happy and successful wife, mother, and entrepreneur that she is today. While working in an electronics factory earning money to help her family survive the hardships of daily l
