You can write and publish a book or ebook entirely on your own but many of the steps can be difficult and lacking experience you can come up with a poor quality book that could hinder sales in spite of your marketing efforts. If you want to do it all, my self publishing workbook (http://selfpublishingworkbook.com/) can be a great help and you can find help in this blog plus soon I will have some tutorials available on specific aspects of the publishing process for both print and ebooks. Unless you are already skilled in the various steps involved or can learn them, I suggest that you hire some help to ensure a quality book.

I write how-to books so for me the writing is about helping others to do a specific job, perform a task, or run a business. I write about what I know and have personally experienced. As I read posts, comments, articles, and even books, I notice that individuals have questions or sometimes I just notice that information seems complex and I can simplify it with my own information. This is how the idea begins and in the next posts I’ll cover how I take those ideas and apply them to my writing.
I have been working with a virtual book tour on a dozen blogs but the tour will be over in a few days and the posts will begin again. I have quite a few helpful ideas on writing and publishing ready for future posts. Thanks for checking in.
If you plan to do most of the work yourself because you have the skills or face a limited budget it takes some time and effort to learn the various aspects. I believe that the entire process is often overcomplicated or over priced unnecessarily. To do it yourself it’s important to keep things as simple as possible. I am including a series of posts on my publishing simplified blog and will be sharing some of that information on this blog also. This will include specific methods for simplifying every task. This post is an introduction to the many simple methods I use to write and publish my books and ebooks. These are methods that you can use to keep things simple.
I write and publish how-to books based on my personal experience but my methods will work just as well for any non-fiction books even if based on research and will even help with fiction books. In the next few posts I will cover every step I go through when writing and publishing my books. If you find them of value you can follow them and ask any questions you may have.
In the next post I will describe how I begin writing my books.

For me, backups have to be controlled manually and they can’t be overdone. I can’t conceive of trusting years of my valuable data to anyone. I’m fairly certain that most individuals would consider my backup methods overkill. I have an original and two copies of all my data on external USB drives and none of it is in the cloud. I encourage others to to do the same because I know it’s critically important to take data backup seriously but there is another method.
Backup to the cloud has become quite popular and some companies provide an excellent service that promises automatic backups. All you do is configure it and then forget it. The forget it part worries me. If you choose to use a cloud based backup method I strongly encourage you to check your backups at regular intervals to make certain they are working as configured. Automatic is great but a small glitch could cause the backup process to stop and without notification you might never know until you really needed the backup and it wasn’t there. Take care of yourself by checking your backups regularly.
