In February 2016, we had the wonderful Jennie Marts speak on the process of Indie publishing, traditional publishing, and hybrid publishing (a combination of the two). We will have Jennie speak again, because she's smart, a good speaker, and presented some great information, however, if you missed Jennie's presentation, let me suggestion you visit Derek Murphy's How to Self-Publish a Book site. He has a dozen or more videos that talk about publishing, traditional publishing, and indie publishing. While I'm one of those who believes that every writer needs a good editor (and his editing video says the opposite), I do believe he's spot on in most of his analysis and provides a great overview of the process.
If you like a quick graphic of what it takes to publish as an indie author, a group of authors are presenting a workshop at Romantic Times Convention, and have pre-published their Indie Author Cheat Sheet here. It's worth a look.
Have a great month!
