After finishing one manuscript ready for submission and nearly completing another, the idea of self publishing is never far away. With the benefits of more control, freedom in the exploration of ideas and flexibility in deadlines (a biggie for this disabled writer) it is tempting so when Random Things Tours offered me a place on the blog tour for Rudo Muchoko’s Awakening the Power of Self-publishing, I jumped at the chance.

‘Awakening the Power of Self-Publishing’ by ‘Rudo Muchoko’
Having worked in the publishing industry, it is fascinating how, once a book has been created and placed on Amazon, self-published authors tend to relax since, in some strange way, Amazon is meant to sell the book. It seems there is no clear guidance for self-published authors on what to do following the publication of their work. Although publishing your book on Amazon is a significant accomplishment, did you know that there are a tonne of other things you can do with it after that? Herein is the value of Awakening The Power of Self Publishing.
In this guide, you’ll discover: The importance of building an author brand and establishing author credibility, The differences between traditional publishing methods and self-publishing, The advantages of getting book reviews, Establishing and maintaining meaningful publishing relationships, Maximising your online presence, Creating a successful book marketing strategy, Keeping your book relevant and profitable after it has been published! Although the book publishing process can be complex, you can effectively develop your author brand if you are persistent, have a good work ethic, and are dedicated.
A small, pocket size book which delivers a punch of information. A nice overview guide of what’s needed for self-publishing which could form a useful platform to build knowledge from. It’s such a big topic, making it impossible to tell all in few pages but the information is clear, accessible and helps prepares you for the long term journey of being an author.
