A friend, Rod Ling, self-published his first novel a few months before he sadly passed away in July 2015.  It is a cracking good adventure story for teenagers aged from thirteen to ninety.  Click on the image of the cover below to take you to the book’s Amazon page.

For anyone contemplating self-publishing a book for the first time, I can highly recommend Andrew Sparke’s book Indie Publishing – the Journey Made Easy.  This ebook covers everything that the author needs to know about self-publishing as well as how to become a professional, self-publishing entity.  The ‘journey’ takes the self-publisher through the essential steps and stages involved in formatting a manuscript for upload to various platforms such as Kindle and Smashwords, through to how to use social media and other means to market the final product.  Having gone through the process myself, I use Andrew’s book as reference material; however, it is equally valuable to the first-time e-author.
