Tips by Nadel Paris on Maintaining a Powerful Voice


Excellent singers have powerful voices but some of them are not able to maintain and sustain its quality over a period of time. There are some of them who develop serious diseases that affect their throats and vocal cords. Some singers damage their vocal cords because of too much strain placed on it and at times they lose the sound of their singing voice as well. However, they can prevent these things from happening if they know how to maintain the quality and the power of their voices. Nadel Paris discusses about the health of singer's voice here:


 
Singers will have to keep their bodies always in good health. If they do this, they are less prone to infections especially those that may affect the parts of their bodies that they use for singing. Staying healthy would include eating the right kind of foods, doing regular exercises and having sufficient time to sleep and rest. Aside from these there are some things that they need to remember. They have to understand that alcoholic as well as caffeinated drinks can cause some irritation on the linings found in the throat area. They also have to take note that spicy foods may cause some acid to go all the way up to the throat.

 

Regular people are advised to drink plenty of water each day. The same is true with singers but those who would like to preserve their powerful singing voice for a long time need to drink warm water as much as possible. They also need to practice self-discipline and avoid smoking including second-hand smoking in order for them to lessen their risks of developing certain kinds of cancer diseases. They have to choose to live healthier lifestyles if they want to succeed and stay long in the music industry.

 

Singers have to check labels of products that they use. There are some chemicals found in mouthwash that can cause harm to their vocal cords and other parts of their speech organ for example. They will also need to include proper breathing as well even while they are talking so that they are able to lessen the strain that is placed on their throats. Should they find themselves in areas where the climate is dry, they can also indulge in steam inhalations or they can also check if a humidifier is available.

 

Great singers may enjoy having their powerful voices until they grow older but they have to work on maintaining their health and their total well-being. They have to understand how some types of foods and activities may positively or negatively affect their health in general and their powerful voice in particular.

How to Protect the Singing Voice? Nadel Paris Explains



There are various things that individuals can do in order to protect and to maintain the quality of their voices. Aside from avoiding spicy foods and drinking caffeinated or alcoholic beverages, they also have to remember a few important things especially if they would like to learn how to protect their singing voice. "Singers need some degree of self-discipline in order to keep their vocal cords from being damaged because of carelessness on their part" says Nadel Paris.

 

Individuals need to learn how to sing while maintaining a good posture. They also have to breathe correctly in order for them to give power to their singing. There are proper breathing exercises that they can do regularly. Aside from this, singers have to work on some warm-up exercises before actually singing. This will prepare their vocal cords to produce the right sound. Forcing the sounds outright may cause strain and damage to the vocal cords and other parts of the speech organ.

 

Singers also have to learn how to relax some other body parts like the face, the neck and the jaw. They are able to lessen the stress that they put on their vocal cords if they can relax the muscles in these other body parts. Singers may also be guided by their mentors in finding the right vocal register that is appropriate for their voice range. These are some effective ways on how singers can maintain their voice quality over time.

 

In order for singers to protect the singing voice, they need to keep their bodies fit and healthy all the time. They need to do physical exercises regularly and they also have to include healthy foods in their diet regimen. Those who healthy will be able to do their singing performances without much problem as their bodies are able to cope with the fatigue and the stress that go with it. Singers will health problems may get tired easily and may be affected with some health problems like sore throat, colds, cough and other illnesses that may hinder them from producing excellent vocal sounds when they are singing.

 

Other ways of protecting the singing voice would require singers to stay away from noisy places. When they speak, they have to see to it that they are able to modulate their voices without causing unnecessary strain on the vocal cords. Singers also have to remember that when they are sick, they have to check with their doctors about the proper medication to take. There are some medicines that would make their throats dry and this would cause some problems in singing. These are some of the things that individuals will have to remember in order for them to protect their singing voices.

Understanding Gospel Music


Another Uniquely American Invention, Black Gospel Music Lyrics and Songs are universally Uplifting

 

When an individual not entirely familiar with the character of gospel music thinks of the genre, that person probably wouldn't consider it as intricately tied into American culture. Perhaps that person would think of the kind of music often sung in black Churches, or the film "O Brother, Where Art Thou?" might pop into mind.

 

One might acknowledge the music's relevance to specific niche groups of our society, but probably wouldn't rank it nearly as influential as, say, Rock, Jazz, Rap, or even Country.

 

What most people don't understand, but which is understood within the gospel song industry, is that 'Gospel music' isn't just a single genre. The gospel label encompasses a wide range of sounds, styles, and messages, and the simplistic description of it as "God music" simply isn't appropriate. In fact, understanding the evolution and impact of Gospel provides valuable insight in the character of American culture.

 

Black Gospel and Southern Gospel Explained

 

The primary difference was that Black Gospel was and still is primarily about God, while Southern Gospels tend to be addressed to God. Both genres, then also vary radically from other Christian music, with which they are often confused. The history of Gospel is rich and intricate. So, to make it simple, let's look at it from two basic perspectives. We'll take the earlier examples, and consider black Church music, and the kinds of sounds people know from O Brother Where Art Thou. These two perspectives summarize the essential roots of Gospel music, as a fusion between early American white and black culture.

 

Similar Roots to Jazz

 

Black church music is probably the most obvious example of gospel music that people have in their minds. Similarly to jazz, this type of music traces its roots back to slave spirituals sung in the 19th century, and, also like Jazz, continues its evolution up through work songs sung in labor camps in the early 20th century. However, it splits from the more secular jazz music at this point.

 

Segregation Breeds Invention

 

Due much in part to the segregation of America in the early and mid twentieth century, black churches quickly developed a very different culture than those that white people often attended. The oral tradition that began with black spirituals had grown and developed, and synthesizing with religious connotations, found its way into churches. These spirituals became a staple part of church life, but never saw much commercialization until the end of the 20th century. After public exposure in film and even some pop music, perhaps most famously by Madonna in "Like a Prayer, gospel music, alongside and sometimes overlapping the growing popularity of rap, black gospel has become not only a viable commercial enterprise, but a prominent, if understated, feature of American culture.

 

Southern Gospel has ingrained itself in American culture in a similar manner, though its evolution is surprisingly analogous. Think of George Clooney crooning away in the hit movie "Oh Brother, Where art Thou?". The type of music he sings there is actually representative of one of the few musical genres that has maintained its popularity since the early days of sound recording. This type of music has its origins in a mixture of the slave spirituals of black gospel, and a more Puritan sound known as heart song. This acapella music, one of the few really acceptable in Puritan society, was commonly sung in praise of God and spirituality. Fast forward 150 years or so, and there's a new industry booming through the use of radio and recorded songs. Very quickly the easy, upbeat, and catchy sounds of quartet music gained prominence with listeners.

 

It's important to point out that while Southern Gospel is different from 'black' Gospel, that doesn't mean one is just in the domain of the white folks while the other is for black folks. Many of the early quartet groups had some or all black members. In fact, as Black Gospel did not gain popularity outside of black culture until many decades later, these quartets were one the earliest opportunities for black entertainers to gain mainstream attention and recognition.

 

As Popular as Ever

 

Nearly a century later, and much of Southern Christian Gospel has remained unchanged. While its popularity died in the middle of the century, the couple Bill and Gloria Gaith did much to revive it in the early 90's through a massive national tour. This inspired a movement that reached out to new listeners, and eventually grew into Progressive Christian Gospel, a sub-genre that mixes elements of traditional, traditional Southern Gospel, Bluegrass, modern country, contemporary Christian and pop music. This evolution has helped spread its popularity and accessibility, particularly among younger listeners.

 

Today, Southern Christian Gospel remains one of the most popular forms of music in the country, though it functions within a very closed community. Despite this exclusiveness, its influence has spread to other countries, particularly Ireland, (List others). More than being simply religious Southern Christian Gospel represents the spiritual and aesthetic characteristic of American society.

 

So, while one might not see billboards prominently displaying the latest Gospel artists, or read about it in history textbooks, it remains an important and stalwart part of the American identity.

Rise of Electronic Music


Electronic music was born in the discos and nightclubs nationwide in the early eighties. Today, this genre of music, also known as Electronic Dance Music or EDM is a music largely created by disk jockeys with a purpose of creating environment for dance-based entertainment.

 

EDM soon became one of the most popular music genres all around the world and some of the forms of electronic music are Breakbeat, Dance-punk, Eurodance, Freestyle, House, Techno and Trance. Though the roots of electronic music are based in the disco music which was very popular in the 1970s it was only in 1990s, that this type music was widely accepted and it became one of the contemporary music styles in following years. Electronic music is generally created by means of electronic equipments and instruments like synthesizers, drum machines and sequencers and it mimics the unique sounds of the traditional acoustic instrumentation.

 

Apart from electro music genres like trance, techno, house and breakbeat which are primarily intended for dancing. Some genres of electronic music like IDM and trip hop are more associated with listening rather than body movements. Trance, which is also one of the forms of electronic genre of music, is a combination of techno, house and industrial music. The name is undoubtedly linked to perceive the ability of music to induce an altered state of consciousness.

 

With the growth of computers and music technologies, and reduction in the cost of music equipments, a number of upcoming artists and disk jockeys have emerged, showcasing their talent and taking electronic music to the next level. Also, with the advent of hard disk recording system, it is possible for any computer user to become a musician, hence we see a rising trend of bedroom bands where often only single player is the band himself.

Vision - To be Successful in the Music Industry


You want to be successful in the music industry. You say you want to be a successful music artist or music entrepreneur. Nadel Paris has an important question to ask you: what does that success look like to you?

When you see yourself as a successful music artist or music business owner, what do you see? What is your vision?

 

Why vision is the most important factor in achieving long-term success:

 

Vision helps you answer ALL of the questions you have as an artist and music entrepreneur: How do I market my music? What clubs should I play in? What record labels should I send my demo to? How should I promote my music? Who should I market my music to? What type of music business should I start? Figuring out your vision first helps you answer these specific questions.

 

Reasons why you need a vision for your music career:

 

1) Vision gives you direction.

 

Have you ever rode in a car with someone who had no clue where they were going? It can be frustrating and stressful, right? You are in the driver's seat of your music career. Where are you taking your career? Where is your career going? Vision gives you the ability to know where you are going in your music career. It makes your goal of becoming a successful artist more attainable. You will have more focus, less stress and less confusion because you will know the type of artist you need to be and the kind of music you need to create to get the success you want in the music industry.

 

Vision can help you hand pick a personal success team (i.e. your manager, lawyer, agent) who is best for the career YOU want to have! It can help you assemble a team that can get you where YOU want to go and not where other people want you to go.

 

2) Vision stops you from wasting time and MONEY!

 

Let's go back to our car analogy. A driver who is lost and has no sense of direction, can waste time and burn gas by driving in circles. Gas costs money! Not knowing what direction you want your music career to go in, costs too. It costs time and money. When you know the end destination for your career, when you have a vision of where you are trying to go, you can determine the best and most direct route to get there, saving you time and money.

 

3) Vision helps you get success in the music industry faster.

 

Having a vision for your music career can help you get success faster by giving you a strategy, a route to success. It can help you figure out the type of people you need to get connected with to help you get to where you are trying to go.

 

4) Vision helps you determine a plan to get to where YOU want to be.

 

There is a quote that says, if you don't plan, then someone else will plan for you. Finding your own personal vision for your career leads you down the path to a life that will be most fulfilling to you. You will be fulfilling the dreams that you had for yourself and not the dreams that someone else had for you. You will be happier because you are being the artist that you want to be and that you planned to be. You are making the music that you wanted to make and living the life you wanted to live.

 

5) Vision gives you a way to measure your success.

 

Vision shows you how far away you are from success. Back to our driver analogy, if a driver doesn't know where he is going, how will he know how far away he is from his destination. Imagine the driver stopping at the nearest gas station and asking the gas station attendant to help him get to where he is trying to go. The gas station attendant asks the driver, "Where are you trying to go?" The driver responds, "I don't know, but I'll know it when I get there." How can the gas station attendant help the driver if the driver has not taken the time to figure out where he is trying to go? Where are you trying to go in the music industry? How will you know how far away from success you are? Having a clear vision can help you keep track of how far you have to go to success.

 

What is vision?

 

Vision is a long-term view or mental picture of the music career that you want to have. A vision statement for your music career defines and describes where your career is going; it sets the destination. It states the type of artist you want to become in the future. It is a forward-looking statement. It defines what success in the music industry looks like for you and your career.

 

A vision statement answers these questions:

 

  • What will your music career look like 5-10 years from now?
  • What will you be considered the best at?
  • What would it look like if you were successful as a music artist or music entrepreneur?

The Path to a Lasting Entertainment Career - Networking Skills


Investing time and money on education can contribute to one's career success. However, one area often neglected is the skills of networking. Most industry newcomers put off learning about them until their hopes are dashed and their finances nearly depleted.

 

Networking is the means by which we engage new business friends, seek out innovative and fresh ideas, find useful information, and foster connections that can grow into lasting partnerships. Networking can also secure jobs and help increase one's income. But most of all it can lead to a long productive career.

 

The most useful networking tool will be your ability to tell stories. You see stories help harness, manage, and communicate the value of your talents. You can list your experience, credits, and training on your resume, but what makes you memorable are the tales that spark the imagination and kindle the spirit. These are stories about your struggles, your triumphs, and the obsessions in your life. They are stories that go beyond the mundane and remind the listener of something greater. Maybe it's a successful endeavor, a learning experience, or maybe it's a story that calls for a collaboration to complete them.

 

In networking situations, people don't always buy your talents, your knowledge; they buy the stories attached to them. Your stories must be compelling, truthful, beautiful, believable, and inspirational if they are to have an impact on your prospects. Stories connect us and everyone has a desire to be part of something bigger than themselves.

 

We all have such stories and to tell them you have to search your own life and find what resonates. We have to go back and get them. Frequently, we belittle our true accomplishments, our struggles, and the lessons we've learned. And what we perceive, as a bump in our journey may be the stepping-stones to a rewarding story. Find what is most meaningful or memorable about your story. How will it be perceived? Choose a story angle that helps people get inspired and internalize the truth. And in your story find something agreeable and build your story around this message. Agreement makes for solid connection.

 

Once you have your story, try it out on people. Obtain feedback, make changes, and continue to hone your storytelling skills. It might take several times to perfect your story before you use it in a networking situation. And one story is not enough. You need several. What you will likely find is that with each telling, your stories will help identify the real you and you will find you feel better and better about yourself.

 

All too often, networking talk turns into a competitive bragging match. Each person is caught up in out doing others. Facts become inflated and as a result trust and integrity go out the window. Connections become temporary and opportunities are wasted. You have to ask yourself, "Am I sharing my story for ego validation or am I doing it as a service to my listener?" The reason behind telling the story shapes how we tell it and how it is received. If the objective is to impress rather than share, your listeners may be turned off. But if your story resonates in a relevant and personal way, you're likely to connect on numerous levels.

 

In framing a story, you should start with the point of the story and build the story around that point. This is the "why" of the story you're telling. For example, if you're telling a story about what you've learned from an experience, this needs to be made clear and articulated in the telling. The story progression might consist of a problem, apparent solution, set backs, realization of capabilities, new tack, result and lesson learned.

 

Another type of story is overcoming obstacles. Often people speed through the problem, solution, and result format. Instead exhibit real emotions and real humility. Nobody's perfect, and mistakes and setback are bound to happen. How you handle these crises establishes your character. And character trumps credentials every time. So include the missteps, and your emotional reaction as well as your corrective action. Phases like, "My mistake then was...," "What I did not know at the time...," and "In the end, I...," make your scenario much more appealing and open to discussion.

 

Revealing flaws has strategic value. By being vulnerable in your stories, your listeners react in a profound way. They see you as human and that's what creates an emotional and caring connection.

 

Stories are the understanding of how and why things in life change. And when we share our human experiences of change, those pivotal moments in our lives, we display our humility and a more humble approach that admits our limitations. As a result, we draw in our listeners and resonate with their lives, their struggles.

 

The topic of your stories need not always relate to your work or your career aspirations. There are other scenarios that illustrate your character and capabilities. For instance, childhood situations can be strong indicators of character. Daily life situations can also be appealing especially when they resonate with the listener's life. Topics like weather, traffic, sports, restaurants, and customer service are good icebreakers. And when your perspective reveals you as a bright thinking, diligent working person, you connect as a likeable person.

 

Besides your stories, you also need some additional tools. Let's say you make a connection. How do you stay in touch? Professional people carry business cards and so should you. Your business card should have your name, contact information and your professional vocation, i.e., actor, writer, director, etc. Union affiliations are also a must if applicable, i.e., SAG, AFTRA, WGA, DGA, IA.

 

For actors, colored photos are essential on a business card. Many use the backside of the card for printing contact information that won't fit on the front. Some use this space for an abbreviated list of credits, i.e., last seen in... If you have a website or social site, make reference to these on your card provided the content is relevant to your job. On the backside of the card write or print some call to action, what you want the recipient to do.

 

Before to attending a networking event, do some research on possible prospects. Check out the company website to find out what projects they've done. This is a good way to show off your knowledge and ask intelligent questions. What is their track record, their specialization, and how successful have they been in the industry? Sites like IMDb.com, BoxOfficeMojo.com, and Baseline Studio Systems (blssi.com provided you have a subscription) will provide useful background information. Also use search engines like Google, Yahoo, and Bing to read up on the company and its personnel. The trades, Variety, The Hollywood Reporter, and news sites like indieWire, The Wrap and Deadline Hollywood are also good sources.

 

When you arrive at the venue, survey the crowd by physically moving around and working the room. All too often, you'll be inclined to congregate with your own kind. Instead reach out to the decision-makers that can help advance your career. Introduce yourself and add a tag such as, "I'm new in town." Listen intently and ask open-ended questions, questions that require more than a yes or no answer. Find out about the interests and concerns of other people. When the opportunity exists, segue into your story and somehow connect it to their issues.

 

Become a resource for others. Introduce people to each other and look for ways to help other people make contacts. By doing so, you become the sort of person that others want to know and want on their projects. You not only show off your talents, you also show that you are a facilitator, one that can make things happen.

 

Be prepared to talk about your work. If you are a screenwriter, you need to talk passionately about your projects. If asked about your latest work, you'll need that vibrant elevator pitch to hold their attention. And if you do it in a succinct, enthusiastic and inspiring way, you're succeeding in making a worthy connection.

 

Networking is about making long-term connections. Soak up and remember the ideas and information you've gathered. Write them down along with the contact's information. By repeating some of this information in your follow-up or thank you cards you help solidify the relationship.

 

Your follow-up can be tricky in that being too pushy may drive your prospect away. Your objective should be long-term and establishing a relationship. Newcomers often become impatient when they don't obtain immediate results. Good connections take time and they are built on trust and integrity. Nurture the relationship by staying in touch. If you made any promises, fulfill them and show you are a person worthy of your word. Your follow-up is a great opportunity to reiterate locations of resume, website, demo reel and/or work samples.

 

Remember, when you are authentic, unselfish, and honest, you stand out above the rest and wonderful connections will happen. People want to know you and help you. The key is to be a decent and honorable person.

 

Networking is a skill that takes time to accomplish so don't be put off by marginal results. Find ways to perfect them by attending mixers, conferences and film festivals. Showcases and industry expos are also great venues. Networking should become an essential part of your craft, one in which you are always active.

Rock Songwriting Lessons by Nadel Paris


Are you a performer, wanting rock songwriting lessons to widen your scope in the rock music arena? There are actually several professionals who conduct classes for people like you. Most of these professionals' have websites where they offer tuition and guidance that you can access by a mouse click. Rock songwriting classes are springing out these days since artists don't always have the skills to write lyrics for the kind of songs that they really perform so well.

 

This doesn't mean they do not qualify to be artists but it means that they are better as singers and not as songwriters. A lot of rock artists start out their careers by taking rock songwriting lessons which they hone and later leverage those skills learned to write their own rock songs. The lessons learn in rock music songwriting become lifelong assets that they use and perfect over time through practice.

 

Rock songwriting lessons are really useful for both beginner writers and experienced writers. Beginner rock music songwriters learn to understand the basic concepts in songwriting and how to create great melody for lyrics and harmonize a song. For experience songwriters to still stay ahead of their completion, they need to take songwriting lessons from time to time to know current trends, tips and skills in their art.

 

Nadel Paris says that going for rock songwriting lessons is good for artists to possess a great skill that they will use in their entire career. Even though artists do hire someone to write their lyrics for them, a lot of rock artists like to scribble their songs even though they don't have the knowledge. This is the reason why they need songwriting lessons. These lessons allow them to go fishing for themselves instead always waiting to be given their own fish - maybe left over fish.

 

As mentioned earlier, a lot of rock music professionals offer rock songwriting lessons online for you to leverage their many years of experience to your advantage. They will lead you, guide you and teach you exactly what you need to write hit rock songs that your audience will love for a long time. All you need to do is to take class assignments and projects seriously and have a daily practice time and you'd be on your way to hitting the rock music charts.

Screenplay Writing Tips by Nadel Paris


Most screenwriters make the mistake of developing their storyline as they write their screenplay which is a huge mistake. Don't be one of those writers!

 

Are you the creative type? Does your imagination flow abundantly with ideas, plots, and colorful characters? If so, you've probably given more than a passing thought to building a career as a screenwriter. While it may seem easy enough, especially when you consider the simple format of screenplays, the fact is a screenwriting career is one of the toughest career choices a person can make!

 

A screenplay-writing career has some very obvious perks. For one, you'll get to fraternize with celebrities. And if your script gets transformed into a major motion picture, you will garner a little fame yourself. You will also get paid a truck load of money for your script. Those benefits seem pretty nice, don't they? And that's probably why many young writers head to Hollywood every year with the idealistic hopes of writing the next blockbuster and cashing in on the celebrity lifestyle.

 

Nadel Paris suggests that before you dive head first into the screenwriting world, you need to know one thing: a screenplay is a tool for the producer, director, actors, and editors - it's not a work of art! It's not a novel or an award winning play. It's a production tool for everyone to use that is involved in making the film. And the most important aspect of that tool is the storyline. Without a properly crafted storyline, your screenplay won't be worth the paper it's printed on.

 

What comes before the screenplay? The storyline! What comes before the storyline? A treatment! What is a treatment? A treatment is a condensed, first person accounting of the story from beginning to end. Most treatments are no longer than 10 to 15 pages. The purpose of writing a treatment is to simply get your story down on paper and to allow for simplified editing; reorganizing 10 to 15 pages of story content is fairly simple compared to reorganizing 90 pages of a finished screenplay!

 

A final treatment is integral to completing your screenplay. You'll need to work all the bugs out of the story before you start writing the first page of the actual script. The more time you invest into troubleshooting the treatment, the better your final script will be. It's as simple as that.

 

Once you have the treatment complete, the actual process of writing the screenplay shouldn't take you more than a dozen hours. Most likely it will take much less time because with a properly edited treatment in your hand, the creation of the screenplay will require simply retyping the story into the proper format.

 

If you don't know how to properly format a screenplay, all you need to do is look around on the internet. You will find plenty of free information that explains industry standards for a properly formatted screenplay. And even those standards are loose, particularly when it comes to a screenplay with an engaging storyline - if your storyline is great, the screenplay's format becomes much less important.

 

A perfect screenplay is a perfectly assembled storyline. The scenes not only make sense but they are all necessary to the development of the story. They are arranged in the perfect order. There are no missing details or instances of ambiguity. It's important that your screenplay be in perfect form before you present it to anyone for review.

 

If you want to learn more about screenwriting, the simplest method is to watch a great movie over and over again. You should also get your hands on a few screenplays and study them. The more you read, the more you'll learn. The more you watch, the more you'll learn. Thanks for reading and good luck with your screenwriting endeavors!

Let Self-Publishing Work for You



With the growing discomfort among traditional publishers with new and amateur writers, self-publishing is becoming a preferred alternative for the upcoming writers. Traditional publishers are not ready to take risks with the novice writers and are looking for assured returns when they publish a book, so they hinge on to the established mainstream authors rather than the newbies in the industry.

 

Also, the unpredictable sales of a newcomer's book make it difficult for them to be accepted by the traditional publisher. The almost ubiquitous internet has made it easier than ever to get your material out in the market. It allows authors to detour the traditional ways and experiment with self-publishing to see their works embracing bookshelves, both real and virtual.

 

These days self-publishing have become a viable alternative over traditional publishing. But, before you self-publish your book, you should be aware that you are bypassing the traditional publishing route and are almost on your own, so that means there is a whole lot to do. You will have to find the best publisher or printer for your book and work hard to promote it. Self-published books can become a hit, but only if they are backed by a well-planned marketing strategy.

 

Best self-publishing companies in India offer editing, typesetting, cover design, distribution, print and e-Books, marketing and help and advice. Self-publishing is a very conducive and advantageous option, particularly if you know how to use it. It is thus, first of all, necessary to understand the path of self-publishing; its nature; factors relevant to self-publishing; the self-publishing industry, and so on. Only then it is possible to make the best use of it.

 

When self-publishing a book, it's important to come out of the little bubble. Get in touch with other people and seek their opinions about different facets of your book, like the cover design, introduction, title, your book's organization, marketing strategy and so on. Connecting to self-published authors, and even have them mentor you, will indeed prove to be of immense help. The direction thus provided by such a source will help to gain a clear view of the road ahead.

 

Having a blog is very important as this will help you connect with your readers and encourage them to purchase your book. It is also important to have a Facebook page, Twitter account and Pinterest account to expand your reach. Similarly, it is necessary for one to conduct one's own research in this area. This will enable one to check the various options that are available and, hence, make the right choices. With the right tools in hand, and the right perspective, the possibilities that self-publishing can bring about are many.

 

It is also required to bear the right attitude towards the process of self-publishing. This means that your intentions; resources, and necessities must be kept in alignment so as to achieve the desired outcome. Hence, the investment put into book marketing and self-publishing services, and the services hence chosen, need to be in tune with the effect desired.
