This book is for anyone who is considering self-publishing their academic writing. Its authors are Helen Kara (who has a cross-disciplinary PhD in social policy and management) and Nathan Ryder (who has a PhD in mathematics). Between us we have self-published several e-books for doctoral students, which you can find online, as well as zines and blogs. Self-publishing is full of challenges, particularly at first, so we have used our knowledge and experience to pack this e-book full of hints and tips, practical advice and resources. But self-publishing also has the potential to bring many rewards: bigger audiences for your work, increased income, even global acclaim. Of course we can't guarantee those, but we can promise this e-book will show you the way.
