Always Be Publishing is about the business and practical side of being a, independent, self-publishing writer.

In 2014, I decided to jump in with both feet and try this new phenomena called self-publishing: e-books, print-on-demand, Kindle, Apple iBook…the whole shebang.

Six years later, I have five self-published novels (with one more on the way), a running series, a novella, and a short story collection. I even get the occasional email from readers I’ve never met asking, “Hey, when’s the next book coming out?”

Six years ago, I wouldn’t have dreamed about offering advice to anyone about self-publishing, other than “You might look into it.” Today, I feel more confident about what I know and what I don’t know. And, I’ve learned from some of the mistakes I made on the way.

That’s why I started Always Be Publishing. It’s for:

  • people interested in the self-publishing revolution, but don’t know where to start,

  • writers already self-publishing and seeking perspectives on how to grow their readership,

  • and people who are looking for encouragement to keep writing and not give up.
