The first book I published was an experiment and not meant to be published at all. I just pressed the button on the Kindle page and found it had been published. Wow. I didn’t mean it to happen but it had.
Sorting out the glitches in formatting my first books took me days and days.
I am still a novice but I have learnt so much, partly from my own experience but also because of the help and encouragement I have received from blogs, emails and general advice from people who have published before me. I couldn’t have done it without them.
So my advice to anyone considering this route is to read some good books on the subject, follow some excellent blogs (I’ve listed a few) and then experiment, learn and amend. And then, when you’ve learnt something, be prepared to help others along the way.
Good luck with your venture.
