“A funny thing happened on the way to my retirement…” It’s the first sentence in Julie A. Gerber’s and Carole P. Roman’s book, “Navigating Indieworld: A Beginner’s Guide to Self-Publishing and Marketing Your Book.”

Roman goes on to say in the book's introduction that “Indieworld”—a term she coined to describe the world of independent- or self-published writers—is “a vast entity filled with a universe of people driven to do the same thing…A different breed of people live there, yet we all have the same agenda.

Oh yes, and make a small fortune in the process.”

She said people in Indieworld are seeking what she calls the three F’s: Fame, Fortune and Fulfillment on their way to a dream of “Fifty Shades of Gray” status “without getting screwed.”

The “Fifty Shades of Gray,” trilogy was that once-in-a-lifetime self-publishing phenomenon of 2011 that has sold more than 125 million copies in 52 languages worldwide, with two movies to its credit so far.

Roman said she “fell through the rabbit hole of independent publishing” in 2012 when her oldest son encouraged her to attempt to write a book—a new direction to take in life that might ease the pain of her mother’s death.

(NewsUSA) – When Jess Michaels isn’t obsessively checking her steps on FitBit or watching daytime Court TV, she’s a best-selling author who writes historical romances with heroines who speak their mind.Her first foray into publishing began, as many picture the life of an author, with a traditional publishing deal.

Authors I respected had success and greater control over their work with self-publishing, so I was eager to try it for myself," says Michaels.She mastered it quickly and decided to go "strictly indie" in 2015, using Amazon’s Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) service to publish in both eBook and print.

Since her decision to self-publish, she has been on the USA bestseller list ten times.

"For Michaels, who says the initial idea of going indie was "taking a leap off a cliff and hoping you can fly before you crash," the resulting benefits have exceeded her expectations.For those authors wrestling with the idea of self-publishing, consider this:- Creative control.

Once a book is ready, self-publishing services, such as KDP, guide authors through setting up their books and getting them in the hands of readers in just a matter of days.- Make more money.

Self-publishing companies, such as Amazon, also offer authors additional promotional opportunities to make their work available to more readers.Many authors find support through writers’ groups online, such as Facebook groups, or in-person by attending workshops and writers’ conferences.

I'd suddenly and dramatically increased my credibility, and I was invited to speak at events (and get paid for it).

Even better, I generated more leads for my business interests.

And few things says "expert" quite like publishing a book on the topic you focus on in your professional life.

I worked with a traditional publisher, and while I'm grateful for that support, I learned some important lessons about the publishing industry.

Many first-time authors are surprised to discover that although publishers don't help market your book, they still take the vast majority of earned revenue.

Who better to learn from than Chandler Bolt, founder of Self-Publishing School?

It's a big question in the business space: Is it better to self-publish a book or pitch it to a big publisher?

And with self publishing becoming easier than ever, Amazon has become loaded with best-sellers.

Books published in 2016 only have about a 1 percent chance of ever seeing the shelves of a bookstore, begging the question: Why publish at all?

In 2015, Jared Kleinert published 2 Billion Under 20, a book highlighting millennial entrepreneurs making world-changing moves.

The book did well at first, but as with most large publication books it had a limited life cycle and Kleinert had limited rights.

On Jan. 17, 2017, Kleinert released his follow up, 3 Billion Under 30.

If you are lucky, you might get a rejection letter, but most of the time, you might not even get one. More controlWhen you self-publish your novel, you have complete control over your work and the publishing process. You can earn anywhere between 30 to 70% of the royalties, unlike the 10 to 15% maximum you get when working with traditional publishing houses. This is also a great way to figure out what genre you are good at and easily gauge your success or failure. It's no secret that many authors started off self-publishing before making it big, and building this following can help attract the attention of traditional publishing houses in the future.

Two years ago, I self-published my first science fiction novel, Where the Hell is Tesla?, and sold 10,000 copies in the first twelve months.

(It has since gone on to sell over 18,000 copies).

But there’s an entire world of badly-written, poorly-edited self-published work out there.

In my case, considering the nature of my full-time job, I couldn’t consider touring, and frankly didn’t have the patience to find a publicist that would actually respond to me as a first-time author, so I chose the online-only path: website, social media, Amazon author pages, and an email list.

One stand-out example for me is John Scalzi (@scalzi).

I’ve talked to many people who can’t seem to sell copies of their books, and after looking, I find that they’re simply not taking advantage of simple features that can help them get discovered.

That said, authors still have to get creative with marketing.

They grow their following before they release their book.

Carbonaro released her book a little over a year ago, in October 2015.

She accomplished this by following the 80/20 rule: focusing 20 percent of her effort on writing, and 80 percent on promotion.

This makes focusing 80 percent of her efforts on promotion a challenge, but she has managed to make it work by being engaging and interactive on social media -- Evan Carmichael and Nexus have both listed her as a top finance expert to follow on Twitter.

Here are five steps to help you get started:

You want to demonstrate your expertise in a distinctive, engaging way, says Cavanaugh Gray, founder of Entrepreneur Café, a Chicago-based small-business development firm.

For example, owning the International Standard Book Number, which can be purchased at isbn.org for $125, can help you retain publishing rights in the future to more easily create updated editions of your book and allow you to switch publishing platforms, says Marna Friedman, an Atlanta-based consultant who advises small businesses on self-publishing.

But some publishers acquire ISBNs on your behalf, which means you'll need to stick with the same company for future editions, she adds.

Sites typically ask authors to buy at least 15 copies to get preferential bulk pricing.

You also need to factor in editing and graphic design costs, which can together total $4,000 to $8,000, says James Altucher, a New York-based hedge fund manager who has self-published four books.

At the same time, we also have a lot of resources that allow us to be that much more connected, and to exchange information with other like-minded people.

What has also changed is our ability to self-publish books thanks to the overwhelming tools available today.

Modern book publishing companies are giving incredible opportunities to writers to get their poems in front of their readers through online self-publishing platforms. This article will cover the essentials of publishing a poetry book, starting with writing the perfect poetry book. A poetry book isn’t simply sandwiching all of your written poems into one book.

After circling the globe for the past five years, I am literally forced offline to fly, bus, or take the train to far off destinations.

No way could I become a full time, pro blogger unless I worked for a set period each day then spent 4, 6 or 8 hours offline, enjoying my travels or simply going from Point A to Point B.

Factor in that I once wrote and self-published an eBook every day for three months straight I ve written 126 eBooks collectively and I have no wriggle room to waste time.
