Operating A Publishing Company

My book Self Publishing: Writing a Book and Publishing Books and eBooks For Yourself and Others is a concise and easy to use guide to help anyone successfully publish their own book. One chapter also explains how to operate a publishing business that publish books and ebooks for other authors. Using that information I have published nine books for other authors so I know the information is accurate. However, I have also come to learn that sometimes publishing a book or ebook for someone else can be quite difficult and troublesome.

After completing the last two books for others I’ve decided that this is not the kind of work I wish to do. I have changed my business plan so I only provide self publishing one-on-one consultation, coaching, and even concise, specially created tutorials for all aspects of self publishing but I no longer take on the task of handling the publishing of anyone’s book or ebook.

I really enjoy writing and publishing my books and I prefer to not do work that I don’t really enjoy. Since I like to teach others, I will limit the activities of my business to writing, self publishing, and teaching others how to do the same. I know that I will cover this in detail when I publish the updated edition of my book next year.

Writing A Book – The Idea

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.

Sorry For Delay In Posting

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.

New Posts About Simplifying Self Publishing

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.
