(Click here to read more) Having worked with self-publishers on book publishing projects for over 35 year, I found that most potential book publishers have the same set of core questions. To answer these core questions, I co-authored the book, Publishing Basics- a Guide for the Small Press and Independent Self-Publisher. This book is about to go into its fourth edition and has helped over 30,000 authors make the transition from author to book publisher. Publishing Basics is available as a free download by clicking here. While the Publishing Basics book provides a general foundation of the book publishing business, it is not targeted to a particular author’s specific needs. Targeting individual needs has always been a little more problematic, in a cost-effective scenario because lengthy individual attention is expensive. Enter the selfpublishing.com “What kind of self-publisher are you?” self publishing test. This quiz asks the potential book publisher to answer seven simple questions. The answers to these questions are then reviewed and an individualized self publishing analysis is returned to the author. A combination of the book Publishing Basics book and this individualized analysis, gives the author the clear picture of what lies ahead on the road to becoming a successful book publisher.
