That said, Self-Publishing For Dummies isn’t going to be enough for you to get your Self-Publishing business off the ground. It’s enough of an overview to teach you what you *don’t* know, and point out some resources to fill in the gaps in your subject knowledge. There are different methods of self-publishing, just as there are many different methods of running your own business (and honestly, self-publishing is running your own business.) This book shows you much of what you are in for if you want to go the self-published route, but you’re going to need more specific texts and advice if you actually decide to go forward with self-publishing.
I’d recommend this book as the first (of many) books to read on the subject of Self Publishing.
