Self-publishing is easy these days – it seems everyone’s doing it. It’s one of the quickest ways of getting your writing to market. Anyone can make an ebook with free conversion software from online booksellers, but is that the best way? And once you’ve made and published your ebook, how do you reach your audience most effectively? It’s not quite as straightforward as Amazon would have you believe, although they and other online booksellers provide a range of tools to help you. Pippa Hennessy will teach you the basics of publishing your writing as an ebook, and Niki Valentine will show you how to give your books the best chance of selling.
