My experiences with self-publishing…

Self-publishing is tough. And marketing self-published book is even tougher. One needs to know the basics, such as – trim size, pricing the book, marketing the book on different platforms including social media etc.

Although a novice to publishing, I self-published “Maiden Musings” nearly five years ago using Createspace.

Along with a paperback, I also wanted to make it available on Kindle so that people who wish to read the book on their smartphones, tablets, or Kindle device they could. I did publish it after a month or so, but the layout was completely wonky and not worth buying.

I kept the project live for few days and then I unpublished the book on Kindle just because I did not want to disappoint readers.

Keeping pace with times, I again explored publishing “Maiden Musings” on Kindle through KDP. I read and understood all that was required to make the book presentable, readable, and enjoyable.

I took over 8 days to structure the book as per Kindle standards and this time – I was successful.

Glad to share link to “Maiden Musings” – Kindle edition. Priced at Just $0.99.
