Writing By The Seat Of My Pants

Rachel Rueben: The Publishing Blogger & Author


For the past ten years, I’ve studied the publishing industry and witnessed many great strides, as well as a few setbacks. When I decided to self-publish my first book “Hag” in 2014, I embarked on a journey that was full of twists and turns. Sure, it’s easy to publish a book but what do you do after that? Here, I hope to help self-published authors figure out things like; platform building, book marketing and publishing hacks.
