Most would define the term in the simplest definition as possible; Indie Author: An author who produces and publishes their own work without the aid of a traditional publishing entity.

If you’re like me you intend to have your books available world-wide. With that in mind you’ll need to know a few things about copyright. I’ve been considering a blog post on copyright for some time as it’s one of the major steps in the process. Its also very important, too important to just devote a few lines to. However, covering everything that really needs to be covered would take more space than a blog post should. It’s also A) been done already, and B) done […]

Once you have your certificate from the state and your tax certificate from the county, it’s time to make a declaration. I am a publisher, hear me roar! Actually, it’s just a small ad in the business section of your local paper informing the public that you’ve created a publishing company and declaring what name you’ll be doing business under. It’s a formality, but one that has to be done. It’s formally known as an Affidavit of Publication and the state requires it. What it […]

You’re actually doing two things; registering with the county and obtaining a tax certificate. Yes, it’s required. To do this you’ll need the certificate from the state, picture ID, your new business address (PO Box) […]

If you’re old enough to remember a TV show named Cheers you may remember Cliff Clavin, the lovable, trivia-challenged postman who held the bar down with his best friend Norm. Norm had the above passage tattooed on his ass after a drunken night on the town with Cliff. To his credit, Cliff had “I love Vera” on his ass, a tribute to Norm’s wife. Evidently there was some confusion at the tattoo parlor. As a result, I always call my mailman Cliff. To her credit, […]

Big Brother Forming your own publishing company requires registration with the state your business intends to operate in. It’s about as much fun as it sounds. Since it’s a business you’re starting you need to decide what type you’ll be registering as. There are several options, and I won’t go into them here as I don’t write that type of book, you’ll have to research that yourself. I chose to file as a sole proprietor. It’s the simplest form and basically says that the business […]

Theres no place like home. Okay, Okay, Okay, so maybe I’m not truly starting at square one with this blog. Obviously I needed a website in order to even have a blog to begin with. So allow me to backtrack a little and I’ll talk about that. A website starts with money. Plain and simple. Unless you have a good friend or the skills to do it yourself, your website will reflect the amount of money and time you invest in it. When doing all […]
