The Savvy Self-Publisher

The first installment of The Savvy Self-Publisher appeared in the September/October 2014 issue of Poets & Writers Magazine. Since then, industry veteran Debra W. Englander, who managed a business-book program at John Wiley & Sons for nearly seventeen years and previously worked at Money Magazine and Book-of-the-Month Club, has interviewed a number of writers who have self-published their books and pursued the long and involved process of getting their work into the hands of readers.
