DIY: Resources for the Self-Publisher

At our panel, we had a lot to talk about, and people had a lot of good questions. Here’s links to the materials we presented and some of the stuff that just didn’t fit in the time allotted.

Our Slide Show Presentation:

Tap here to see lots of slides detailing the finer points, including some we didn’t have time for. Whether you’re making a book, a game, a novel, or a program, the same fundamentals apply to all. This slide-show is frequently updated as we learn new things, along with you.

Budget Worksheet:
To better assist you in your budgeting, we’ve uploaded a spreadsheet to address the questions you had from the panel. Tap here to view our worksheet on Google Drive. Edit the values in the yellow cells until you get a project with a goal that you can meet.

Sample Work-for-Hire Contract:
We’ve also added a sample work-for-hire contract, that you can use with your outsourced talent. Note: we’re not attorneys. Tap here to view this contract on Google Drive. We use the basics of this contract when we work with our talent. Specific, written agreements are always better than some vague words, to make sure that everyone’s getting fair treatment. There’s lots of commentary in this file on what we would change, and for what.
