My Favorite Independent Publishing Resources

These are all pretty well known resources and for good reason. They are simply fantastic in their detail and “how to” approach. You may already know them. But I am posting them here just in case you are just starting out and need a place to start, or are curious as to what I think are the best of the best resources out there for indie writers.


Dean Wesley Smiths Think Like A Publisher and Killing The Sacred Cows of Publishing.

Kristine Kathryn Rusch’s The Business Rusch series.

Joanna Penn’s The Creative Penn Joanna has a great blog and podcast, of which I recommend both.


In addition to Joanna’s podcast I also recommend the following:

Rocking Self Publishing
and The Self Publishing Podcast.

I am not including any books as I assume if you are checking out these sites for the first time you are a newbie and they have more than enough free info to get you started (as well as to take time away from your writing). Having said that, if you insist on a book then head over to Smashwords and download Mark Croaker’s free e books The Secrets to Ebook Publishing Success and Smashwords Book Marketing Guide.

Then do the most important thing (as in above all others) for self publishing success: WRITE!
