Catherine Ryan Howard of Catherine, Caffeinated fame put up a nice series last week titled Five Days to a Self-Published Book. The five days are metaphorical, but if you’re just now looking at the daunting task of creating your own content that’s probably a relief.
The full series can be found here.
Update: The series references CreateSpace, but I’m not recommending it on that basis. Rather, I think it’s an excellent work flow example to follow, and I believe it was intended as such. (On the subject of CreateSpace, Lulu and POD, see also this recent comment from Joel Friendlander.)
Later Update: Mick Rooney has an interesting post up about Lulu. I asked Mick a few follow-up questions in the comments, and I found his answers illuminating. Anyone considering Lulu.com for self-publishing should give his post a read.
