As I was growing up, having from a very young age found an appreciation for the art of writing, I began to acquire books about how to write well. From there, I began to explore self-publishing concepts. Self-publishing appealed to me greatly, and I’ve been working with the idea of it ever since I read The Publish-It-Yourself Handbook many years ago.
I am very grateful for books about writing and publishing!
Exploring ideas from other writers is invaluable in learning the art on your own.
