The top 5 mistakes South African authors make when self-publishing a book

The top 5 mistakes South African authors make when self-publishing a book

 

This article will take a good look at the top 5 mistakes made by South African authors who self-publish their book.  Far too few South African authors find their writing being celebrated.
