Self Publishing your book: 5 steps + resources!

It’s not an overnight “get rich quick” scheme, but it can be very rewarding, and can certainly provide income if you follow these 5 steps.  If the main reason for writing is to scratch an itch that you’ve had for years to be a writer of your own stories, then this is the time to give it a shot. Perhaps the other reason is because your family has been wanting to capture your stories from your childhood, and memories of your parents and grandparents.. which only you can tell at this point!  There are lots of reasons to write, whether from a personal history perspective or a creative outlet of your imagination, or even a story based in part on factual events but then adding an element of ficticious intrigue.
