How I Wrote, Crowdfunded, and Independently Published a Book in 2020

Blake Boles:

In May 2020 I independently published my fourth book, Why Are You Still Sending Your Kids to School? This was the third time I’ve self-published, and I feel like I now have a strong grasp of the process. This blog post documents the entire 17-month process of writing, crowdfunding, and launching the book into the world.

If you’re thinking about writing your own book or self-publishing, then you’ll find clear utility in this article. (Also see my 2012 post on the subject.) If not, you may simply enjoy reading a walk-through and post-mortem of my creative process.
