The response to this book has been incredible, because it fills a real need. Here’s what I mean:
“Most authors are excited about the promise of self-publishing—until they actually try to do it. Then they quickly realize they will need a team of professionals to prepare, publish, and promote their book. And that’s where they get stuck. They don’t have the connections.
