Useful links

 

This is a list of links to helpful websites or blogs that I’ve gathered during my research into self-publishing. Each of them offer a different view of how to approach the subject and it will be up to each individual writer to pick what is best for them. Some of the information may be antiquated, but I kept the link as it provided valuable information on how things used to be. I’ll try to keep this page updated as much as possible.
