on Just Publishing Advice:
You only get one chance to publish your book
New authors often think it is so easy to self-publish with Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP), Smashwords or Draft2Digital.
It is true that uploading and publishing a Microsoft Word file and a quick homemade book cover is insanely fast and straightforward.
You can do it in under five minutes and have your book published and on sale in less than twenty-four hours. On top of that, you can do it all for free.
