    If you have any interest in self publishing, or are just an existing author looking for some tips and clever help...this book is for you. In my opinion, this book should be on every modern writer's bookshelf. In the age of ebooks, self promotion, social media and the like, it's an invaluable source of information. I really can't say enough good things about Katie Salidas's book, but I'll try. Look for a spotlight coming to Unapologetic Fiction soon!

    Great Guide to Self-publishing

    Go Publish Yourself! is a step-by-step, easy-to-read guide about the self-publishing process. Author Katie Salidas draws upon her experience of starting her own publishing company and offers not only a guide to putting together a polished product, but information on how to market it, something even a traditionally published author will find useful. The book encompasses everything from obtaining ISBN numbers to creating an attractive cover. There are sections on both bound and ebooks. Salidas also provides several useful links at the end of the book. I like that the author stresses the importance of submitting a book to multiple critiques and hiring the services of a professional editor before publication. Right off the bat, she cautions that self-publishing isn’t likely to make one a millionaire and that creating and promoting a book takes a lot of effort. She also stresses that there is a financial investment and hard work involved in doing the job right, but if someone is willing to put in the work, it can be done. I would recommend this book to anyone researching the possibility of self-publishing.
