Self Publishing School is launching this week, and it’s a great way to learn how to write, publish and sell your first book.
I recently caught up with Chandler Bolt, the author of six self-published books and the founder of Self Publishing School.
In this video interview, he told me about:
- How to self-publish a book in 2017
- The one thing you must do before you write or self-publish your book
- How to avoid the common mistakes new writers (not authors!) make
- The simple rule that helps Chandler balance writing with running a successful business

If you’re self-publishing your book, using a good book cover is one of your most creative important decisions.
A compelling book cover will help you sell more books on stores like Amazon, while an amateur book cover will put potential readers off.
Over the past three years, I’ve designed a book cover, worked with a friend to get a book cover I liked and used the popular crowd-sourcing service 99designs.
For my new book, I decided to find a book cover designer online and commission them to create a cover for me.
In this post, I’ll explain what you need to know about working with a book cover designer.
