On my way to self-publication

Now that several of my backlist books have gone out of print and the rights have reverted back to me, I’m taking steps to have them self-published.

First up is my favorite of my books, Out of the Shadows.

I just signed up with LuLu, who I’ve used for years for print projects. I purchased one of their packages that will format my story correctly into an .epub document, then they will put it up for sale on their own site, iBookstore and Barnes and Noble. I’ll retain 90% of the profits of all sales. After I receive the .epub document I’m going to put it up on Amazon myself. My previous publisher never put it up there, so there’s a whole new audience waiting for me.

Have any of you gone the self-publication route? Any tips for me for marketing?
