Welcome to HelpWithPublishing


Self-publishing is now an increasingly viable option for authors. However,  it’s not easy to find unbiased information that’s not trying to sell you services.

We’ve started HelpWithPublishing to try to provide that information and, hopefully, to keep you from being fleeced by the more unscrupulous self-publishing service companies. The information here is based on Diana’s twenty-five years experience as an author and on our joint experience of self-publishing her most recent books and building websites for many authors. We also have guest posts by others with relevant experience from time to time.

Self-publishing doesn’t mean you have to do everything yourself so you may want to buy in help for some of the tasks. To help you do this, we have a searchable database of experienced freelance editors, designers and illustrators who are willing to work with self-published authors. We don’t act as an agency – you contact the experts yourself and any arrangements are strictly between you and them.
