Free help for Authors wishing to self-publish

I found this press release recently and I’ve toyed with posting it as it may simply be a vehicle to get money out of hard earned aspiring authors. I would suggest reading fully what is required of you to take part in the free advice section. It may be that you have to subscribe. Only do that once you’re sure they don’t want you to get into a monthly payment or one off. Unless you want to, of course.

I entered into a similar website for photography. I haven’t paid anything and I do keep getting a few emails with the odd tip here and there so it might be worth it.

Press Release:

San Diego, CaliforniaAccording to The Flagler College Gargoyle (Nov. 8th Edition) Self-publishing has become one of the fastest growing industries in the book world.” And authors, who are unable to get noticed, are opting instead to self-publish.

And while self-publishing is a great option for many authors, and in fact, can make them more money than traditional deals in many cases, it is not a quick road to cash.  Authors have to learn how to design (or hire someone to do it for them), market, and sell their own books, and many struggle with the maze of options available to them and the decisions that have to be made at each stage of process.

That’s why “Ask Ellen” was launched. Every month, publishing and platform expert, Ellen Violette, helps authors navigate through the process with a free Q & A called “Ask Ellen”.

Whether authors want to publish a physical book, ebook or both, this is a place where they can get all of their questions answered so they can make informed decisions and reduce the learning curve to becoming a success self-published author.

“The truth is that it can cost thousands of dollars to learn the ins and outs of self-publishing if you aren’t careful, and it’s easy to get in with the wrong “experts” and waste money.
