“There has never been, since the invention of the printing press a better time to be a self-published author!” Peggy DeKay
Writing was never a part of my life plan. I came to it in small steps—a business woman first, a writer second. After a short career in banking, I went back to college for a computer science degree and opened a computer and network design company. I left the computer business after thirteen years and became a newspaper columnist and freelance writer. It seemed to me that the two consistent things in the many iterations of my career were computers and writing. When I discovered print-on-demand technology and realized the huge potential for authors, I knew what I had to do: teach other writers how to take control of their careers, their content, and their profit margins by self-publishing. I am on a mission. Self-Publishing for Virgins is a comprehensive how-to book that teaches writers how to self-publish with profit! This book takes you from conception to publication and promotion of your self-published book using cutting edge, print-on-demand technology, social media and non-traditional book promotion.
