I started self-publishing in 1994, and I've been helping other authors since 2005. In 2010 I founded the Self-Publishing Boot Camp educational program of books and workshops. In 2016 I launched Author Friendly, a service that does it for you - publishing plan, formatting, distribution, websites, social media, etc. - because I finally figured out that authors really don't want to do everything themselves! Better to just write. I live in San Diego and Baja, California, but travel to my native San Francisco and north to Oregon to visit friends and family and for writers conferences.
