    Index of self-publishing diaries: please read before starting your own

    Note: if you start a diary thread please send me a PM asking me to add it to this list!

    Several of our members have now started diary threads in this forum in which they tell us of their self-publishing journeys, and I thought it might be useful to start an index thread for them all. That way we can find them easily and see what sales are like, and if there are any patterns which emerge or pitfalls to avoid (not too many of those, I hope).

    If you have a thread you'd like to be added to this index please PM me, and I'll get to it as soon as I can. Meanwhile please don't use diary threads as a self-promotional tool, and only post about how many five-star reviews you've had on Amazon and where we can buy your book: post real, useful, interesting stuff about the challenges you've dealt with, the things you've learned, and how many sales you've made.
