How to publish a book?

Here are my 5 easy steps to publish your own book.

  • Write the Book.
  • Edit
  • Publish
  • Market
  • Sell

Write the book. Just as simple as that. write down all of your ideas….if you do not like writing or typing you can audio record your self and have the audio transcribed into word format. You may need a small budget in order to complete this first step depending on your skill set. Tools I used to create children’s books in 2019- Hardware: MacBook Pro Software: Adobe Illustrator; Pages app on Mac (see tools)

Edit the book. Once you have a first draft completed… have an editor or mentor read over your masterpiece and make the necessary adjustments. After your book is edited and everything makes sense….you are ready to publish. In order to publish you will need your book in word format and you will also need a graphic designer to design a cover for your literary work of art.

Publish the book. Prepare your manuscript to be uploaded. Checkout this video on how to self publish a book with Amazon.

Marketing

After your book is published you will need to form some type of marketing strategy to create a demand for your book. Organic guerrilla marketing is my favorite way to market my books. Find your fan base and focus on them…take pics…reach out to people to leave reviews…do pop ups. The possibilities are endless once you are a published author. This is a great accomplishment. Congratulations. Keep going.

How to create an NFT?

Non Fungible Tokens are rare unique digital assets living on the blockchain. If you’re clear on what NFTs actually are and want to learn how to make and sell an NFT, follow me and I will walk you through the process. The first thing to do is choose an NFT platform on which you’ll create and sell your NFT plus a payment wallet, which you’ll need to use to pay fees – and to receive payment if your work sells.

There are lots of online platforms through which you can make and sell NFTs. Popular NFT auction platforms include OpenSea, Rarible, SuperRare, Nifty Gateway. NFT Payment platforms also abound, with popular options including Coinbase, MetaMask, Torus, Portis, WalletConnect, MyEtherWallet and Fortmatic.

Once you’ve set up your MetaMask, Coinbase wallet, or any digital wallet, you’ll need to add some ETH to it. If you don’t already own some ETH, you’ll need to buy some now, so click on the ‘Buy’ button and select the option ‘Buy ETH with Wyre’. You’ll be taken to a screen where you can use either Apple Pay or a debit card to buy ETH. 

Most digital wallets work in a similar way. Whichever one you’ve chosen, you’ll need to connect it to the NFT platform that you’ll use to create your NFT. Click the “Create” option above to upload your digital file (JPG, PNG, GIF, SVG, MP4, WEBM, MP3, WAV, OGG, GLB, GLTF. Max size: 100 MB). Name your project. Link project to your website. Provide a description of the product file you are selling. Choose a blockchain for your file to live on. Ethereum is an open source blockchain that powers most NFTs. and has gas fees. Polygon is a gas free experience that works with ethereum.

After you have uploaded your file. Provided a name and description, chose your blockchain network. Click the Create button and you have minted your 1st NFT on the blockchain.

Nothing on this page is financial advice…however it is education encouragement….figure it out and keep going.
