The phenomenally rapid growth of self-publishing, in particular e-publishing, has taken the world by storm. Never before has there been this great an opportunity for writers to be heard and read, and to build a global audience. But self-publishing is also the new Wild West, full of promise and snake oil in equal measure. The Global Indie Author separates fact from fiction, providing the information you need to create a publishing plan that is realistic and achievable.

The Global Indie Author begins with a 10-step guide to getting your book onto Kindle quickly and easily, followed by expansion into ePubs. Part II contains in-depth technological instructions for both ebook and print production, complemented by real-world knowledge on the mechanics of the industry gathered through the author's own experience in bringing her debut novel, Baby Jane , to market.

The Global Indie Author also exposes secrets and strategies the industry players don't want revealed so they can lock you into unfavourable contracts, take your money before you start asking questions, or convince you that what is really good for them is good for you. And by adding information relevant to foreign writers, The Global Indie Author provides the necessary know-how for anyone who desires to publish in the lucrative U.S. market and around the world.
