I just read (for the first but not the last) time a new book: How to Write, Format, Publish and Promote your Book (Without Spending Any Money). This is by Derek Murphy of CreativIndie and I highly recommend it. I reviewed in on Amazon (UK) and am very happy to recommend it to anybody in the early part of the curve of writing, publishing and indeed self-publishing (or Independent Authoring). If you need a bit of motivation or want a bigger picture of the whole process pick up a copy!
