    Being new to self-publishing, I've learnt so many great tips, and now understand a lot of the publishing jargon that scared me half to death!
    I feel so much better equipped to tackle the hurdles I know I'm going to face and, to be honest, have made me procrastinate for a long time now!
    With loads of personal anecdotes, Donna shares her invaluable experiences and expertise and has made me substantially less afraid of the self-publishing process.
    Thank you, Donna, for putting this great reference together!
