Book publishing has changed in ways that are highly beneficial to readers but not so great for traditional publishing companies. These changes also offer new challenges for self-publishing authors who think they no longer need to worry about gatekeepers like agents and editors, who once had the power to keep their work from reaching a mass audience.
There are new gatekeepers now, and they’re here to stay. Indie authors have to learn to embrace them and glean what knowledge they can from their methods.
This change happened thanks to readers like me. Read the full post »

For those of you following this blog, you know that I tend to write about both publishing and my personal life. I’ve decided to split these two subjects into two separate blogs.
The new one, located at http://www.rdenoncourt.com, runs on the awesome SquareSpace platform. Right away it looks more like a personal blog. The one you’re reading now, Self Land Publishing, will be strictly about self-publishing and my efforts to get my writing out there to an audience.
I won’t share writing tips here. I’ll share them at http://www.rdenoncourt.com
“Self Land Publishing” will be strictly business. Here you’ll find publishing advice and hear about numbers and sales.
“Rdenoncourt.com” will be a place for me to talk about my life as a writer and as a regular guy trying to make his way in the world. I’ll discuss society, psychology, relationships, and travel as well.
As always, you can sign up for my mailing list to hear about new books. I’ll announce those here as well.
Thanks again to those of you who have followed my posts. I hope to write many more in the future, and be more consistent in my posting schedule. And if you have any questions for me, or ideas for posts, contact me at richard(dot)denoncourt(at)gmail(dot)com
