Self-publishing a book is a complicated endeavor. It is an especially daunting effort the first time it is undertaken. The new author will face a series of issues, tasks and decisions that must be addressed. One way to get a handle on all this activity is to use a project management approach.

About me:WATCH NOW!
ABOUT TUNNEL VISION:
You deserve a laugh or two, and this is the book that will give them to you. It contains twenty, count 'em, twenty stories told with humor or satire. You'll find both fantasy and science fiction inside. All these stories have all been published in small magazines, anthologies or on the internet. A few of the publishers are no longer in business making it impossible to find some of the stories. Inside you'll find a plethora of strange characters including a warrior-cook, Pope Alex VI and his daughter Lucretia Borgia, a knight-accountant, a bumbling wizard, bird-like aliens, undead softball players, a vicious alien impresario, Loki, Shakespeare's Wryd Sisters, King Arthur and Merlin along with a few despicable politicians. The stories take place in fantasy lands, ancient times and in our modern civilization. It is currently available in e-book only. You can get a copy from Mobipocket. The print version will be available in late summer!
ABOUT HANK QUENSE:
Hank -- assisted by his faithful mutt, Manny -- writes Science Fiction and Fantasy stories (along with an occasional writing article) from Bergenfield, NJ. All of these stories are humorous or satiric because he refuses to write serious genre stories. He feels that folks who crave serious Fantasy and SF can get a full measure in any daily newspaper.
In the spirit of disclosure, Hank reports that all of the story ideas (the good ones anyway) come from Manny. Hank merely translates the dog’s ideas into a manuscript. Besides this country, they have sold stories to publishers in Canada, Ireland, Britain, Australia and France. Visit my writing website here to see more information and to read a free story or two.
ABOUT FOOL'S GOLD:
Aliens, ancient gods, beautiful Valkyries, humor,heros, conniving nobles, betrayal, greed, incest, a magical gold horde; this story has something for everyone.
Fafner, from the planet Zaftan 31B and the most notorious criminal in the universe, is stranded on Earth after civilization has been ravaged by disease, war and pollution. He decides to hone his felonious skills by stealing the powerful artifacts developed by another alien, Alberich. But Alberich is determined to regain the artifacts or at least make Fafner pay for stealing them.
Alberich's devices, made for the magical Rhinegold, give the user vast powers. The Chip, allows the user to receive information instantaneously from anywhere in the universe. The second device, called the Helm is a beanie-like hat that allows the wearer to see the life lines of every creature in the vicinity. Wotan, god of the Saxons and Vikings, has to recover the Rhinegold in order to prevent his aging. He recognizes the greatly enhanced power of the golden horde thanks to Alberich's genius. He plans to make a big comeback and regain millions of worshippers. To take the devices away from Fafner, he needs a old-fashioned hero: one who is strong of arm and weak of brain.
While these conflicts rage on, Brunnhilde, an ex-Valkyrie, searches for the meaning of true love. Despite a few false starts and some problems such as the wrath of the god Wotan and mean-spirited men, Brunnhilde struggles to understand mortal love while she seeks a good man to try it out on.
