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. That’s where The Self-Publisher’s Ultimate Resource Guide is a life-saver. This is the missing link that will enable authors to capitalize on the self-publishing revolution and become captains of their own literary destiny. I highly recommend it.”
—Michael Hyatt, New York Times Bestselling Author and former CEO, Thomas Nelson Publishers
“An essential reference to the best publishing resources for every self published author. Highly recommended!”

—Joanna Penn, TheCreativePenn
