A Short Checklist for Independent Publishing

Are you interested in independently publishing a book?

What that means is getting a book into the hands of readers either through electronic devices or hard copy without going through the centuries-old route of using a traditional publisher.

If you are, here is a handy checklist for you.

Like the ingredients you need before you begin making a cake, you will need:

1. A fully edited, completed manuscript, formatted into the correct version for the publishing platform you want to use.

2. An appropriate book cover for the ebook or print book. In the case of an ebook, the cover is just a front page which appears on the web; for print books, a cover includes a spine and a back cover.
