David Gaughran over at his blog wrote a book called Let’s Get Digital: How to Self Publish and Why You Should.  It looks like a worthwhile read.  He’s selling this book (read the blog post announcing it) but he’s also generously giving away a copy for free on PDF.  If you are interested in self publishing, then you ought to pick it up.

I originally landed on his blog with the post “Making Money from Writing Part 1” (on short story writing), which proved to be a great read.  Anyone else interested in writing short stories for a living (or a side living) should check it out.  Dean Wesley Smith also has a great post about it, although it is more number crunching than pragmatic.
