Free Course:
Plan Your Book Metadata

Welcome to Selfhelpforselfpublishers.com. The web home of Aderemi T. Adeyemi- author of Self-Help for Self-Publishers: How-to Workbook & Planner and all-around independent author and resource provider. If you’re interested in a simpler path to self-publish your book, follow the simple guidance outlined in my workbook, in combination with my courses. Together they will increase the likelihood of you successfully publishing and distributing your book on any of the independent publishing platforms.

In this course you will learn how to utilize oft-overlooked publishing tools and reduce the stress associated with a self-publishing project. This course is not a writing workshop. But the information covered is recommended for anyone looking to take their already written manuscript through the production stages of self-publishing.

You will learn about metadata, first, before taking the step of hiring freelancers to work on your book. It will help you to publish efficiently and with less stress. Beginners and even the seasoned authors, must be aware of how to utilize metadata.

Wherever you are currently in the publishing process, you can learn about metadata easily. Then incorporate it into your process. I know it’s not as glamours as actually writing the novel or whatever. But when you practice the basics, you can get it done better. Take this course and you will make it to the finish line with more stamina.

I have prepared for you just a few lessons. The lessons are quick- videos to view, with some text to read. They are free for you to consume, but if you find them to be the least bit helpful, please keep in mind that, although short in length, they consumed a fair amount of time and some real effort to create. Please make a donation on your way out. I appreciate you 100%!

Self-Help for Self-Publishers: How-to Workbook & Planner

“Spoiler alert! By the end of this book, you will be able to self-publish your own as an indie-author. This will not happen overnight. But, by faithfully sticking to your process, one day you will awaken to find that you are indeed a published author. Being that this book is interactive, you have a lot of control over the outcome of the story. And like every story, there is a beginning, middle, and ending.
Now that we have taken a peek at the ending, let’s talk about how to begin. This book is not a how-to on writing a book but encourages self-help for those who’d like to publish one themselves. However, it dose incorporate a helpful guided journal and workbook to help manage the production and publication of your book.
It all starts with writing down your book idea…”

Self Help for Self-Publishers: How-to Workbook and Planner is the tool for those who aspire to one day see their book in the hands of children, young adults, and adults- reading, enjoying and sharing it with others. But it’s not just for newbie authors: This book is for independent authors for whom each book project is an opportunity to learn more about their own process. The new book is not only how-to: Self Help for Self-Publishers offers tools to help anyone organize the seemingly abstract parts that form your book. One example is metadata. This handy book helps you to pull it all together in one space. Within its pages are activity worksheets, six months prompted planner, dot grid, and lined note paper to refine your plan- all on the way to completing and publishing your book. And by the end you’ll have a documented manual or blueprint of your own successful process. You can refer back to it for future projects. But it all starts with writing your book idea down. So be prepared with your great book idea already written down and your manuscript typed out.  And from there you are guided on a self-help journey to actually publish your book.

Who is this book for:

When you are working on self-publishing your book you might wonder to yourself, if only there were an analog solution to organize my self-publishing journey. Maybe if there were a workbook to work out my plan in, I could complete and finally publish my book. This workbook has to be an informative how-to, with a simple description of the requirements to self-publish my book. This book would give an overview of the types of services that are needed before I can publish my book, with a log to keep passwords for each publishing account. And because there can be so much to do, it would walk me through the production and editorial stages of publishing my book. This very useful book would touch on topics ranging from the editing stages and how to hire an editor, to the book cover and hiring an artist or illustrator, formator, and layout designer. It would inform me about how to build my book’s metadata to help market my book. This amazing book would prompt me and give lots of space to write in my answers. And this book has got to have plenty of lined paper to take notes and dot grid paper for drawing and doodling. Also, to help me plan, this book must have a calendar, with a weekly planner for to-do lists. And when I am not sure what to do next, each week would have an activities list with suggestions for that week. This book would be a companion on my self-publishing journey. Not too small, at 6 by 9 inches and large enough, with ample room to write out my ideas as they pop into my mind. I’d definitely keep it at my bedside, and it is something I’d surely take with me on the go- pack it in my tote, backpack, purse, man bag, etc. You never know when good ideas come up, so I’d have it to jot them down on the train, at the beach or at work. I would love a journal like this.
You’ve got it! I wrote Self Help For Self Publishers as the tool for you to author your own journey of independent authorship. Because, it’s not so much about what is in this book (and there is a lot), as much as it’s about what you’ll put into it. You are the help you’ve been looking for.

Self-Help for Self-Publishers offers tools to organize the seemingly abstract parts that form your book. For example metadata. It helps you to pull it all together in space in which you can sketch out, your book building plans, refine it, and complete your book. And by the end you’ll have documented a customed manual or blueprint for your success. But come ready with not just your great book idea already written down and your manuscript typed out. Because from there the you are guided on a self-help journey to actually publish your book.
