A selfpubber, also known as an indie author, does not write for a publisher, but does everything himself. Publishing a book is not something you just do, there is a lot involved. In addition to being a writer, you are your own publisher and you also do the marketing yourself.
Selfpubber 1.0: Bittersweet
In 2016 I embarked on the selfpubber adventure and published the chicklit novel Bitterzoet. Without proper preparation and much too soon. I made a lot of mistakes then. Still, I’m happy with this experience. I now include the mistakes from then in my preparations, such as having to outsource some things that you are not very good at, such as cover design. And that an editor is also very important.
