Summary

Self-publishing can establish your reputation, enhance your practice, and make your voice heard. Self-promotion is not just for businesses anymore; it's for professionals, too, and it's perfectly ethical. New technology has leveled the playing field in publishing; you no longer need a publisher to be the intermediary between you and the public. You can self-publish a book, write a blog, get your articles published online, and more. Self-publishing works best for nonfiction books with a specific niche.
