Self Publishing Tool Kits. Which are Best?

In this article you will find a summary of the top self-publishing tool kits available. However, if you are ready to learn about self-publishing a book its time to take the first step. The first step is to hire a publishing coach or to try a self-publishing tool-kit.

Learn Before You Leap!

It is exciting to finally make a decision to self-publish your book. But, buyer, beware. The so-called self-publishing companies hold hands out for your money. Before proceeding, do yourself a favor by reading my article, Self-Publishing Companies to Avoid and How to Detect Author Scams!

Of course, the least expensive way to start is to try one of the free self-publishing tool-kits. Many of the print on demand companies offer free self-publishing book kits in order to attract buyers to their self-publishing services. This makes sense but the information in these tool-kits is geared to sell you their services which are not free.

Top Self-Publishing Companies with Toolkits

The Process of self-publishing a bookConsider, several prominent and top self-publishing companies include IngramSpark, Morris Publishing, LuLu Books. They all offer free self publishing tool kits. These tool kits offer various tips of how to self-publishing a book–mostly around using their platform. Of course, it is free to sign up for their services. However, these tool-kits offer very little solid information, except for a soft sales pitch for printing. Later, you’ll be hit with “after-the-fact” publishing services.

Indeed, their headliner service includes digital book printing. Yet, once you study about self-publishing, you will realize these that “self-publishing companies” are up-selling other publishing services. Notably, extra services include book cover design, interior book design, content editing, proofreading other publishing services. So, this is another cases of “free is not free.”

How to Publish a Book in 2020: Learning How to Solve the Self-Publishing Puzzle

The puzzle pieces of how to publish a book

Learn How to Publish a Book with Self Publishing Tips, Tools, and Books by Publishing SOLO Magazine

By Deborah S. Nelson, Author-Book Coach-Speaker

When learning how to publish a book–what is the largest obstacle of all? After being a self-publishing coach for the past decade, my conclusion is that self-publishing’s most serious issue, by far is … lack of knowledge. Unfortunately, both hungry and fat sharks swim about in the ocean of self-publishing. Yet, learning to recognize the wolves in sheep’s clothing, and outsmarting the predators–means getting a good education.

Obviously, We do not want to leave you to the wolves, or the sharks! So, in this process, we offer many free and paid tools, book coaching, and other resources for those who are learning how to publish a book themselves. Stick around, and learn the truths you need to know to be a successful self-published author!

The Biggest Challenge in Book Publishing: What You Don’t Know is Costly Beyond Words

One of the first questions most writers who want to self-publish ask is–who are the best and worst self-publishing companies? Which self-publishing companies should they avoid? These questions always bring to mind the truism: You don’t know … what you don’t know! To top it off, not knowing adversely affects your self-publishing costs–another popular question in independent publishing! How much does it cost to self-publish a book?

I cannot begin to tell you how much confusion, miscommunications, time, energy, grief, and money writers spend on learning what they don’t know on the way to self-publishing a book. Without realizing it, many have embarked on becoming their own publisher! Indeed, self-publishing a book goes way beyond just printing a book!

“How to Publish a Book” Makes for a Puzzle with a Multitude of Pieces

However, the bigger problem is not which self-publishing company is the best–or the worst, but who is the best match for your book publishing project! But, how can you know that? How do you know which self-publishing company to use in the first place? First, you need to understand the big picture; and you need to know a thing or two.

So, right off you need to understand is that printing a book is only one small piece of self publishing a book. Many people really do think these are the same–but this could no be further from the truth! Consequently, this one issue causes a lot of untold grief. Indeed, a little education can go a very long way to prevent mistakes and keep from needlessly spending money in wrong ways.

What is Self-Publishing Anyway? A Few Definitions

This article covers the basic overview of 2020 self publishing options and possibilities. After a decade of digital book publishing, the dust has settled and systems have prevailed; and stars have begun to shine. Key players, are Amazon Books, Kindle, Amazon Audibles, Ibooks, and IngramSpark. There are many more players in this industry but these are the top ones, for starters.

Image of Publish a Book Kit

Before diving into any one of these venues, you are wise to learn the difference between publishing and printing, self publishing, short run printing, independent publishing and vanity publishing. A lot people companies who print books, refer to themselves and self-publishing companies and they indicate their services are free.

First of all, in reality the “self” publishing is actually produced by the person who has created “the works.” This term has been used loosely or “generically” in the past decade, and it would be wise to get a clear understanding of these terms. You may do so by reading my Dictionary of Self Publishing Terms. This will help you immensely in your quest in learning how to publish a book.

The Chronology of How to Publish a Book

The order of the phases and stages of publishing a book include a lot more steps than just printing a book. This is where a lot of misunderstandings can arise with so-called self-publishing companies. As publisher (self) you are responsible for the design of the cover, the interior layout and design, including front and back matter, and other parts of a book, plus the content editing, copy editing, and proofreading.

As publisher, you are responsible for scheduling, budgeting, hiring freelances; and of course, selecting the printer. Also, you select the distribution options, create author website, social media, and branding and marketing efforts. In summary, for more detail about what a publisher does see the article entitled: Become a Publisher in 7 Strategic Ways.

Someone famous once said: Don’t Die with Your Music Still in You … Deborah S. Nelson says: “Don’t Die with Your Story Still in You!”

Your Inside Story Brings Personal Transformation

By any chance, is publishing a book on your bucket list? Well, then, the New Year is prime time to write your story–or to write a new story of your life, A new story is about the only thing that will create lasting self transformation. And, to support the concept of Self Transformation through Self-Publishing, Deborah S. Nelson, Publisher of Publishing SOLO Magazine presents her DIY Book Publishing Kits for 2020.

Self-Publishing is Confusing and Complex

self-publishing is confusing
What, Where, Who, Why, When, How-of Self-Publishing

“Digital publishing presents distinct technical challenges when preparing a book file for printing,” says Ms. Nelson, and adds—“Specialized publishing services like book cover, front & back matter, title, ISBN, bar code, and copyright issues—plus pesky details such as interior book design, sales and social media basics are daunting for the novice!” These aspects are often more time-consuming and challenging, than writing the book, itself!

Self-Publishing Kits for Writers, Entrepreneurs, & Rising Stars

Despite technicalities, Ms. Nelson cheers self-publishing benefits for writers, entrepreneurs, and rising stars. These include notoriety, expert status, and increased self-worth; along with options to speak, consult, teach, and sell books. Plus, Ms, Nelson says a priceless self-transformation occurs through the self-publishing process.

Many entrepreneurs increase their pricing 10-25% once they a published author. Also, some add consulting and speaking as another income stream. Indeed, writers, who have never been published, use their self-publishing success to land better publishing contracts than possible for “first-time” authors. Rising published YouTube stars increase their notoriety, fund-raising, and income streams from their growing online brand.

Democracy in Publishing—A Right to Publish

Deborah S. Nelson has worked passionately and tirelessly both inside traditional publishing, plus has mastered self-publishing and book coaching during the past decade. Therefore, she understands that the digital transformation is not as easy as was initially expected. Insurmountable hurdles for the new self-publisher include achieving professional quality, overcoming technical blocks, learning author promotion, plus navigating various publishing venues such as Audible Books, Kindle, and online eBooks. These take time, expense, expertise, learning, and persistence.

Self-Publishing is Exhausting for Many Writers

Many first time writers have founded themselves over their heads and mired in the self-publishing process. They get stuck, and quit. Yet, Ms. Nelson reveres the concept of democracy in publishing. Anyone who nurtures their inspiration, has a story to tell, or specialized knowledge to share; has earned the right to publish.

Win at Publishing with How to Publish a Book Kits

What are How to Publish a Book Kits? I know someone who has created these just for aspiring authors. If publishing a book is on your bucket list, you must read on!

POD Printing, Self Publishing and Indie Publishing

Considering it has been a little over a decade since the introduction of print on demand, publishing a book yourself is now a real option for new and seasoned writers. Just as online dating was marginal at first, now we now longer call it “online dating.” Online dating today is just dating of someone you met online. Publishing a book is heading that way and soon, it will be totally acceptable to publish a book using online sources. No longer will there be a stigma attached to “vanity or self publishing.”

Learn How to Be Your Own Publisher with DIY Kits

Although publishing a book online to Amazon Books has become affordable and doable, technical difficulties will arise. For example, you must create the book cover to the exact file specifications required by print on demand. The truth is, if you are unfamiliar with graphic arts and digital files, these specifications could literally cause you to “tear your hair out.”

Additionally, doing the interior layout of the book is even more challenging. For example, you need to consider the placement of all the front matter and back matter. Plus, what is the front matter and back matter? Briefly that includes the Table of Contents,  title pages, Acknowledgements, Dedication, Index, Resources, to name only a few. The interior must also include headings, and page numbers, and Chapter heads. Indeed, this is very complicated even for a seasoned graphic artist who has not done interior book cover design and layout before.

Honeymoon Over–Publishing a Book Not that Easy

Once reality hits, these are just a few of the difficulties that a novice may find difficult to overcome. After all, a new writer may have already spent a year or more in writing the book. Now this daunting self-publishing aspect could take another year or longer, if you, as the writer, need to learn all these things.

The best option is to hire a book publishing coach, or take a workshop. Although doing it this way may save thousands of dollars and months and years of your time, it tends to be a little pricey. However, you may not have that kind of money to invest in the first place.

Less Pricey than Most Self Publishing Education

Publish a  Book Kits by Deborah S. Nelson, Author-Book Coach-Speaker

I created the new How to Publish a Book kits. This was after I had guided writers and their 100 plus new books through the self-publishing process. From this experience, I learned that self-publishing a book boiled down to a few basic steps which cause many aspiring authors to stumble and fail. We breeze though these with the kits.

Do You Know How to Get an ISBN for Free?

For example, most writers lack certain knowledge in this process, and believe they must buy an ISBN number, or even 10 of them. This is an unnecessary cost as you can get them for free. Indeed, this is just one small example, and Publish a Book Kits educate new writers how to make better decisions in their self publishing process. Therefore, this small investment will save hundreds, or thousands of dollars in common mistakes.

Writing Hack #34⁠—How to Cure Your Writing Hangover⁠s—Yoga for Writers

Writing Hacks for Those Craving to Publish: Writing Hack #34 Yoga for Writers by Deborah S. Nelson

Writing Hack #34—Yoga for Writers; Writing Hacks for Aspiring Authors Craving to Publish

By Deborah S. Nelson, Author-Book Coach-Speaker

Today, I want to share an amazing discovery—Yoga for Writers! For three years I wrote nearly non-stop. Oh, the aches and pains! The muse had me so inspired that I considered the bathroom break as a rude but necessary interruption. This is what can happen when you are on a writing sabbatical in the Caribbean–or your mind simply forgets the body during inspired writing session. It was glorious, but my body paid the price. That is until I discovered Yoga for writers!

Click Here for Your Self-Publishing ToolkitBack when the muse was turned on fully, I worked 12-14 hours a day 7 days a week! However, now, I am lucky if I get 2 or 3 hours a day of writing. I need to spend so much time on infrastructure and marketing. Gone are the days when putting up a website on the Internet when it was faster and easier and cheaper than a brick and mortar store. Now everything is just as expensive and complicated when you own virtual real estate.

Yoga for Writers is Saving My Body

But I digress. I return to Yoga for Writers. What a wonderful discovery! My body took a great toll from writing for all these years. I wrote and published several books in those days, and the books have taken good care of me. However, a couple of years ago, I had to acknowledge a “crick” in my neck which was so severe it leads to numbness and tingling in my left pinkie. Then, a year later, my thumbs started experiencing a tunnel carpel situation.

Not one for traditional medicine, I went to the chiropractor for my neck for about a year. In addition, I added monthly massage to my healing routine. It took a year and a half, and the crick in my neck softened and disappeared. But, I realized that I needed more than that to reverse all the unnatural tension in my body. I needed prevention—daily prevention.

Yoga for Writers Keeps Your Writing Flow Going

Enter YOGA. Yoga in its gentle but firm approach has helped me to unwind the tension from the 20 books I have written over the past 10 years! At first, having worked out as a body builder, Yoga seemed at first to be very minimalistic. However, after a few sessions of trying Yoga, I discovered its power. The gentleness of it keeps me in my writing mind.

Now that I am a Yoga enthusiast, what is even more exciting is a new Yoga practice introduced on YouTube by Adrienne. She has made a special half-hour yoga practice for writers! This is fantastic. As writers, we need to get up every few hours and do a little yoga to keep our bodies from clenching up into a ball in various places.

I love how Yoga can help my hands and wrists and neck and lower back extend, and unwind. If you spend more than 3 or 4 hours a day writing, be sure and give Adrienne’s Yoga for Writers a chance!

33 Writing Hacks for Those Craving to Publish: Writing Hack #27 Write the Action by Deborah S. Nelson

Writing Hack #27 of 33—Writing Hacks for Aspiring Authors Who Crave to Be to Published

By Deborah S. Nelson, Author-Book Coach-Speaker

Now that your writing is passionately flowing stories with excitement and action, let’s focus on how to polish your writing. Understand that the “art of writing” and the “craft of writing” are different mindsets. For best results do these different types of work in phases so that you are not demanding your mind to shift back and forth from the “art” to the “craft.” If you have not read Hack #10 Art and Craft of Writing you might want to review that tip now.

Click Here for Your Self-Publishing ToolkitThe writing industry offers many options to polish your writing. The three main ones include content editing, copy editing, and proofreading. I find that I can easily edit my own writing, but only if I wait a few weeks or months, after writing it. Content editors charge from $75-$100 an hour. However, this is a cost I do not want to incur. Therefore, I have learned how to edit, and consequently, also to self-edit. The key to effective self-editing is to edit with a fresh mind, and fresh eyes, which requires letting your writing sit for at least 3 weeks or longer.

Are Your a Wannabe Writer? Try 33 Writing Hacks for Those Craving to Publish by Deborah S. Nelson

I wrote a mini-course, 10 DIY Self-Editing Tips for a Smoothly Written Ride, which is phenomenal for saving hundreds and thousands of dollars in editing. As for copy editing, and proofreading, I suggest hiring a specialist from one of the freelance sites. These are very detailed types of work, and editing takes ongoing practice in order to develop the eye and mind to catch the details of the work.

33 Writing Hacks for Those Craving to Publish: Writing Hack #26 Write the Action by Deborah S. Nelson

Writing Hack #26 of 33—Writing Hacks for Aspiring Authors Who Crave to Be to Published

By Deborah S. Nelson, Author-Book Coach-Speaker

How do you make your words jump off the page? With a multitude of instant media forms competing for attention, writing must be succinct and action-oriented. Our writing must connect with the reader to provide instant information or entertainment. So how do we exactly put action in our writing?

Click Here for Your Self-Publishing ToolkitFirst thing, write as much as you can primarily in the active voice. The second way to write the action is by writing as if the action is happening in the present.

Two easy ways to write in the active voice—limit passive verbs and limit the use of possessive. Passive verbs are those such as: is, was, were, do, did, doing. Search your document for “do,” “did,” “doing,” and other passive verbs to replace them with active verbs, you will bring your writing alive.

Are Your a Wannabe Writer? Try 33 Writing Hacks for Those Craving to Publish by Deborah S. Nelson

Replace the words “have,” or “had”—and in ninety percent of the cases, your writing will soar. Find more descriptive, active words to replace the word “had” or “have” and other possessive words.

Along those same lines, avoid using “it,” and “there is” or “there was” and “there are.” These are sleepers. What is even more boring, is starting several sentences with “it,” which most certainly can build a rhythm that rocks the reader to sleep!

Lastly, use present tense as much as you can, to keep the action in the present moment. This will help to engage the reader in the action!

Writing Hack #25 of 33—Writing Hacks for Aspiring Authors Who Crave to Be to Published

By Deborah S. Nelson, Author-Book Coach-Speaker

A few new writers have experienced an amazing set up of circumstances and their life is ripe for an autobiography. Take the example of Helen Keller, Steve Jobs, John Adams (second US president), and other people who experienced high-level life stories. You do not need to be well-know, but if your life story is one that has overcome impossible odds and obstacles, then your life can be a book. If your life has been full of adventure, action, and drama, that could be great material for a novel–or a series of novels.

Click Here for Your Self-Publishing ToolkitThe challenge of this is that you probably need to have kept a journal during the times you faced these dramatic odds. If you try to remember everything five or ten years later, this will be quite difficult. In order to write an engaging, inspiring autobiography, it would be best to work from a journal, notes, or a diary. If you had written a blog during that time, that could be some great material from which to resurrect the story in a fairly accurate way.

However, if you love to write fiction, you can use your life experience for the basis of a novel. Many novels are based on a true story, but of course, the artistic license can be taken with events, times, places, and the leading characters in the book.

Writing Hack: What’s Your Life Story? Share Your Adventures & Be the Hero

33 Writing Hacks for Those Craving to Publish: Writing Hack #24 What’s Your Life Story? by Deborah S. Nelson

Writing Hack #24 of 33—Writing Hacks for Aspiring Authors Who Crave to Be to Published

By Deborah S. Nelson, Author-Book Coach-Speaker

A certain number of writers have quite a life story to tell. However, you might not want to write just one book on your life story. Break it up into sections, and see if you could get a few books going. If your life has been super adventurous, consider writing a series.

Click Here for Your Self-Publishing ToolkitYou could embellish your various life stories to create a fictional series from the individual stories. Practice writing one chapter of your life to see how it reads. Take it a local writers group for feedback. If you don’t have a local writer’s group that you feel you can trust, set up a half-hour consultation with me. More on that below.

Always remember, your reader knows nothing. Your words must paint the backdrop, and fill in the details as well. Too many details are distracting and too sparse details will not keep the reader’s interest.

Here is a good trick when telling a long story. Drag an imaginary magnifying glass with you as you write. Magnify the details, and word pictures to create the present moment as you write. You want to place your reader into a fresh new moment as they read along. Keep it fresh with details but continue to paint the backdrop with broader word images, so that the details have context.

Your life stories are rich content for a multitude of articles, books, and short stories. Use this material to touch the reader with your wisdom and experiences.
