Nine Steps to Self-Publishing Your Book

by Stacy Dymalski

Memoir Midwife book coverAvailable in paperback and on Kindle on Amazon.com

The only resource you’ll ever need to self-publish your book, THE MEMOIR MIDWIFE walks you through the self-publishing steps, whether you’re writing a memoir or any other genre of book. Using the nine months of pregnancy as a metaphor (because creating any kind of art is like giving birth) think of “THE MEMOIR MIDWIFE:Nine Steps to Self-Publishing Your Book” as the “What to Expect When You’re Expecting” of the self-publishing world. It’s meant to give you an idea of what’s coming at you in terms of self-publishing before you commit to that first step.

Reader Reviews

“I wish this book had been written when I published my first book. It is clear and concise, with easy-to-follow steps that make the whole process way less daunting.”
-Kirsten Henry Fox, author “The Profitable Wine List”

“I’ve self-published a series, but learned more from this gem of a guide than I could have imagined. BISAC, POD, ISBN, Library of Congress, EIN, handling finances, design and production, she covers it all.”
-Amanda Turner, author “This Little Piggy Went to the Liquor Store” and “Mommy Had a Little Flask”

“I have self published one book already before reading this one, but got valuable tips of steps that I skipped or did not think of. Stacy uses her wit and humor to explain the self publishing process in an easy to understand and entertaining way.”
-Tess Whitty, author “The Marketing Cookbook for Translators”

Stacy’s book gets to the point with the right amount of information I need. If you are just thinking about writing a book, get this and read it. It will help you formulate what approach to take and what steps you can take now to be ready to publish when your book is finished”
-Katie Mullaly, author “The Land of Or”

“After reading my husband’s copy of this book, I ordered one to send to a friend who is self-publishing this time around after a bad experience with the publisher of his first book. Stacy’s book is a clear, concise blueprint on how to take control of your book publishing experience. Highly recommended for both aspiring and established authors.”

One exhausted parent’s take on carpools,
room mothers, high school band, and hernias

by Stacy Dymalski

Available in paperback and on Kindle on Amazon.com

Speaker: Confessions of a Band Geek Mom

“This laugh-out-loud funny parenting memoir from standup comedian Dymalski (The Vixen Chronicles) will keep readers entertained, whether they want children, have children, or want nothing to do with children. Dymalski’s witty remarks and sarcastic retorts prove to be the perfect way for her to chart the trials, tribulations, and joys of raising two boys after 36 years of childless freedom. Dymalski shares the ways in which her life changed with motherhood and describes how the brutal reality of parenting is very different from preconceived ideas about having children. Full of hilarious and memorable moments and including chapters titled “The Art of Using Scissors (Blood and Gore, Part 1),” “Working Off Fat Season,” “Mom Jeans,” and “Excuse Me, I Volunteered for What?” Dymalski’s book will engage readers cover to cover.”

Reader Reviews

“I started this book when I couldn’t sleep one night and ended up reading it through right then, all night long. It was hilarious. Nothing is sacred, Dymalski pokes fun at everything and everyone. I’m a big fan of Laurie Notaro and this book was similar to some of her work. If you like to laugh, this is definitely worth checking out.”
-Amanda on Amazon.com

“Years ago I used to read every Erma Bombeck book I could find because they were laugh-out-loud-funny, and I could relate to them. This book has the same effect on me, and it reminds me so much of those books. Anybody who has had kids (or even if they don’t) will really enjoy reading it. I can’t wait for this author to come out with another.”
-Amy on Amazon.com

“I happened across the writer’s blog and I could so relate. Unless you were raised alone and completely void of interactions with others you will appreciate her sense of humor. I am ordering the book because I love her blog.”
-Starfish and Coffee on Amazon.com

“…if you have to get up for work in the morning, you’re going to be in trouble. Expect to read it cover to cover, and then log back on to Amazon to order several more for your friends. It is a fine balance of humor, drama, nodding your head in agreement, and fond family memories. Thanks, Stacy, for the journey.”
