A Nerd's Guide to Self-Publishing

After a quarter of a century in IT, I decided to return to an old passion: writing. At the start of 2019, I made one and only one New Year's resolution: I was going to win at least one writing contest. By the end of the year, I had won three first prizes, five publications in short story anthologies, three publications in literary magazines, and eight honorary mentions. Encouraged by this almost instant success, I decided to start writing books.

In this guide, I am going to share my experiences with self-publishing. This is not the definitive guide. It's a collection of articles that are—or will be—added and updated on a regular basis. The content and structure of this guide may change over time, as I gain more experience and as the world of self-publishing evolves.
