I’ve compiled a list of links that I feel might be particularly helpful to self-publishers and anyone interested in marketing books, videos, CDs, etc. Several sites offer free self-publishing guides for download.

The bloggers that I follow the most are 1) Joel Friedlander 2) Joanna Penn and 3) Jonathan Gunson. Several of the sites – especially Joel Friedlander’s – contain a wealth of information and practical advice for writers. Let me know if you have a favorite self-publishing site.

Here are the links:

    • Brian,
      I have been reading many of Jeff Bullas’ articles over the past two years and thought that you may be interested in checking out his site – http://www.jeffbullas.com/
      — if you are concerned at all about promoting and marketing your books, websites blogsites, etc., this guy, in my opinion, is the guru. There is a wealth of info on his site and I invariably find something I can use.

    • Hi Deborah,

      Thanks for you recent comment on E-Commerce Tips-to-go and I just wanted to inform you that I am going to continue to use my primary WordPress site which is https://dorion9.wordpress.com/ I hope you will visit that site as the first one is new and I decided to not continue posting there – at least for now.

      Best,

      Gary

  1. I am really loving the theme/design of your website.
    Do you ever run into any browser compatibility
    problems? A number of my blog readers have complained about my blog not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Chrome.
    Do you have any advice to help fix this issue?

  2. Please let me know if you’re looking for a writer for your
    site. You have some really good posts and I believe I would be a good asset.

    If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d love to write some content for your blog in exchange for
    a link back to mine. Please blast me an email if interested.
    Regards!

    • Hi,

      I might be interested – always looking for good writers – but know very little about you.
