Nuts & Bolts of Publishing

TSM Recommends: Podcasts for Writers

The Sarcastic Muse supports all paths to publishing, from traditional to self to indie press. For those considering the authorpreneur route of publishing, the crew at Sterling and Stone has put together a series full of useful information.

If you aren’t familiar with the Self Publishing Podcast or Garrett Robinson, this series is a collaboration. The video series includes the things not often talked about on blogs such as how to compile a manuscript, how to upload it, and  practical things that anyone interested in self-publishing has to know. I had to work most of it out on my own, but there’s no reason you have to. It’s a good series and not  yet complete. It’s also a mini-course on Scrivener (in terms of using it to help publish), which is good, useful information.

Here are the videos completed so far:

Authorpreneur Nuts & Bolts #1: Introduction

Authorpreneur Nuts & Bolts #2: Learn How to Self-Publish

Authorpreneur Nuts & Bolts #3: How Much Does it Cost to Publish a Book?

Authorpreneur Nuts & Bolts #4: How to Use Scrivener (the Basics)

Authorpreneur Nuts & Bolts #5: How to Format Front Matter in Scrivener

Authorpreneur Nuts & Bolts #6: How to Format Back Matter in Scrivener

Authorpreneur Nuts & Bolts #7: How to Use Scrivener Collections

The series won’t be complete for a while, but wanted to let you know about it now so you can catch the videos.
