Matter Deep Publishing is launching The Indie Guide to Indie Publishing. I am excited to be a part of this with some incredibly creative people and we would love to have you join us in this exciting new project. Check it out at Kickstarter and pledge to make it a reality.

A step-by-step guide to indie publishing from people who have been there and done that.

Help eight experienced independent authors (and one designer!) publish a how-to guide for aspiring self-publishers.

Why would I want this book?

The Indie Guide to Indie Publishing is a start-to-finish guide designed to help independent authors navigate the world of self-publishing. Each of the nine authors involved has their own areas of specialized expertise in independent publishing that they want to share with writers and artists with all different levels of publishing experience.

Did you say experience?

The authors involved in this project have done years of research and production, often times patching together their knowledge from scattered sources and learning from epic mistakes. We've already combed through the books and websites, filtered out the snake oil salesmen, and done the trial and error ourselves. Our experiences can streamline the process for you and serve as a guide along the way.

So is this just for newbies or can experienced authors use it?

Whether you're a complete newbie or just an author looking for a little expert advice, this book can help you. How does Bobby Nash get invited to so many cons? Where can you find a reasonable, talented cover artist? What did Blake Northcott do to get an endorsement from Mark Millar himself? These are just some of the questions we'll address in The Indie Guide to Indie Publishing.

Involved with the project are Blake Northcott, Kiri Callaghan, Bobby Nash, Dave Wheeler, Carly Strickland, JL Bryan, Kyle Strickland, Teal Haviland, and Amy Leigh Strickland are launching the Indie Guide to Indie Publishing on Kickstarter. Back us for sweet rewards!

I an excited to be part of this project and look forward to spreading the word about it. This is our second fundraising attempt as the first one fell just a bit short. To all those interested in pledging, you have my eternal gratitude.
