The new decade has arrived, and with it comes new self-publishing trends.
Size matters when it comes to marketing your self-published book.
At Steuben Press, we’re no strangers to working with business leaders and coaches who want to take their know-how from the office to the page so they can reach more people.
Finding a publisher for your first book is hard. Really hard. There are something like 300,000 books released each year in the US by traditional publishers, but far more are being submitted to those publishers.

When building a social media strategy for your self-published book, it’s important to know that the audiences for each platform you use (Facebook, Instagram, etc.) each have a different need from your posts.
As a self-published author, it’s likely that you’ve faced rejection from prospective publishers before. It’s just part of the business.
Not all poetry is inspired by rhythm and sound, or pen pressed to paper. For some artists, poetry serves a powerful means toward the ends of collaboration, conversation, and community building.

Being a self-published author means also being a self-taught editor, marketer, website designer...the list goes on.
