From the Author
Many writers have questions aboutincorporation and crowd-funding, not to mention hiring freelancers anddeducting expenses. Or they are considering purchasing a publishingpackage from a self-publishing service company, and wonder how to distinguishbetween an honest company and an unscrupulous one. When they try to read a contract, the page looks like 5,000 words run through ablender!
How do writers writeblog posts that are provocative, but not defamatory? How do they findeye-catching images without spending a fortune? They wonder if their websites needprivacy policies, and what do DMCA, COPPA, and DRM mean anyway?
And there is a personal reason I wrote theHandbook.
My parents were artistic people; my mother anactress and my father a stage and television director. By temperament orchoice, they did not understand business or money. When I was young, I saw thembeing taken advantage of over and over again. I went to law school so I wouldhave the tools to navigate the business world myself and to help creativepeople like my parents.
Writing and publishing a book is a significantinvestment in time, money and emotion. Writersshould not lose money (or sleep) by hiring the wrong self-publishing servicecompany or getting sued for copyright infringement.
Many chapters in the book will also help atraditionally published writer who is blogging, tweeting, and creating contentfor Internet distribution.

A big bonus is her "Resources" appendix which lists books and websites helpful to writers.
Though she lists the steps chapter-by-chapter, it would be very helpful when she revises to include a step-by-step worksheet in her revision and downloadable from her website, which would help us who bought her earlier version.
May you all make a great day and write great books.
Additionally, Sedwick has a wonderful annex that literally helps you understand contracts and legal language - that alone is worth the cost of the book so you know what the heck you are agreeing to. So glad I found out about this book and read it before publishing!
I spent months getting an internet education and it was eye-opening. So many scam artists and greedy people out there. Luckily I had time but not money so I didn't lose money during my learning.
One source I consistently found useful was TheBookDesigner.com. Articles there provided me with lots of great information and resources. One of the best resources I found there was this book.
When I decided to self-publish, I had no clue about the difference between SEO and ISBN. I am so grateful for Helen Sedwick's clear writing and thoroughness to guide me.
I read the book first to get a general idea of what I needed to learn. But I keep coming back and reading sections over again as I need to know that specific information.
This book is a GREAT VALUE.
I'm glad I read this book. Was a quick nice read. Thank you Ms. Sedgwick for the information!
