The Self-Publishing Business Model

Posted by:

In this post, I will discuss the self-publishing business model in general, and the different methods commonly seen in the process of publishing a book.  These steps can be described as being from the very simple and easy all the way up to the very advanced and troublesome, depending on the route that the publisher decides to go throughout the process.

I must also apologize for the infrequency of my posting of late.  Even more than a month out from The ...

Self Publishing Observations

Posted by:

Of course, as noted throughout the site, the first title available from Late Nite Books is the d10 Core Roleplaying Game System Pocket Companion & Core Rulebook available on Amazon.  This, of course, is a major step for me personally and my fledgling company, so I decided that I would share a little bit of my insights into this process.
