The aim of this book is to give you the benefit of my experience. It is not the only experience. There are many valid paths to publishing a book. I do however think the path that I have found is a very good one. I feel so passionately about my publication strategies and the reasons I selected them that I have written this book. It is my sincere hope that this book will help you to be a more skilled publisher of books, whether you are a new author or seasoned author.
If you are a new author, you will find a lot of valuable tools and effective strategies to aid you in the publication of your first book. For the new author, though, one of the most valuable things I will share are mindsets, which if you embrace them, will help you avoid pitfalls. These mindsets may even help you leapfrog more seasoned authors in building the skills needed to publish your future books.
If you are a seasoned author, some of the things that I will say in this book will raise your eyebrows. If these things cause you to at least critically review the way you have always approached publication, then I have been successful.
