I wrote an article for the MindStir Media blog entitled "5 Rarely Discussed Self-Publishing Mistakes: What NOT To Do". The post has become very popular, having been shared/liked on Facebook over 1,500 times and re-tweeted nearly 200 times. The post covers topics such as book pricing; brick-and-mortar book sales; online marketing; editing and more...
Not to toot my own horn, but I really believe the post is a must-read for anyone who plans to enter the world of self-publishing. For most, the post will be refreshing and offer new info not seen before. For some others, especially those who have been around self-publishing for a while, the points in the article might not be new but can simply act as reinforcement. Hey, everyone needs a reminder every now and again, right?

I recently wrote a really helpful self-publishing checklist and published it on the MindStir Media blog site. The checklist offers twenty important items you'll need when self-publishing your book. Some of those twenty checklist items include:
- Information on how to handle editing
- Info and helpful advice for book cover design
- Copyright registration guidance
- A link to a very valuable book marketing guide that supplies authors with 75 marketing strategies and tips
