How to Self-Publish Your Book: An Indie-Author’s Guide
Have you written a book but don’t know how to take the first steps toward getting published? Relax, this is a common scenario. Many budding authors write books and then don’t know how to get them published. The truth is that there are two ways to publish your book. You can publish traditionally, or you can self-publish. This book is for authors who wish to self-publish. However, traditionally publishing your book shouldn’t cost you any money either because the process involves finding an agent or traditional book publisher and submitting your query letter and possibly other materials to them in the hopes that they read and accept it. If they do accept it, they will perform the final edits, develop a cover and publish the book. You should get an advance, which means you get paid when you traditionally publish. You do not pay anyone any money. If your “traditional” publisher is asking you for money, run. It’s not a traditional publisher. It’s probably a vanity press.

Kelsey Arriving Home from School
Kelsey Smith stepped out of Carl’s car in front of 201 Church Street. As usual, Greg forgot to pick her up from school, and it was almost four in the afternoon. If Carl hadn’t stayed late to talk to the English teacher, Mr. Ingles, Kelsey would have been forced to walk home. While it was only about a mile, it was a mile farther than she wanted to walk after running up and down stairs all day.
Kelsey walked up the sidewalk and opened the faded black screen door. The brown-painted security door's handle didn't budge when she attempted to turn it.
After pulling out her key, she unlocked the handle and the deadbolt before testing it again. The lock had a habit of retracting the bolt ninety-nine percent of the way, leaving just enough bolt lip to make opening the door impossible without relocking it and unlocking it again. Today, it was working correctly.
Once the door was open, she waved to Carl to let him know she was fine and going inside. However, she paused with the screen door closed and watched until Carl's car disappeared from view. He had asked if she wanted company until Greg arrived home. She had not, but Carl insisted that he stay since this was a less than stellar neighborhood.
Kelsey politely refused his offer, reminding him that she grew up homeless on the street and needed no additional protection. Now, she wanted to make sure he had taken her refusal seriously. It looked like he had.
Kelsey closed and dead-bolted the door before turning and looking over at the couch. Greg wasn't on the couch, and after listening for a moment, she realized the house was silent. Greg was not home, and Kelsey made a mental note to kick his ass.
To make sure he truly wasn't home and not masturbating in a different part of the house, Kelsey turned on the lights and walked through the downstairs before walking through the upstairs. She saw no indication that he was home or had been home since he dropped her off at school.
This was weird. He was usually home by three. Greg just never bothered to stop by Grand Central high school on his way home to pick her up. It irked Kelsey. She’d lived with him for the last five years.
