How to Self Publish a Book

I’m a big supporter of women in business. It can be a tough job balancing business, babies, family commitments, and life in general. But it’s so worth being in business for yourself. A favorite quote of mine sums it up perfectly: “Are you bored with life? Then throw yourself into some work you believe in with all your heart, live for it, die for it, and you will find happiness that you had thought could never be yours.” – Dale Carnegie. Starting or running any type of business is a lot like motherhood – you work too much, but you’re part of building something special, and that hard work is personal, and pays off in so many ways.

Getting creative with Kal Barteski: A self-publishing success story 

I love that Blub is helping to celebrate the awesome work that women entrepreneurs do. They already offer amazing tools to create beautiful books to showcase your work, that you can even make available for sale in their marketplace. Check out this profile video to learn the story behind one self-published author who uses Blurb, it’s super inspiring.

A little about the video: Blurb author Kal Barteski is a maker extraordinaire whose creativity knows no bounds. She’s a working designer, painter, storyteller, book creator, TEDx speaker, and calligrapher who can now add “video star” to her resumé with the first of Blurb’s Canadian book-maker profiles. Watch the first installment in our Canadian Author video series with a wild look at Kal’s creativity. We think you’ll be inspired to make your own book with Blurb too. If you can’t see the video embedded above, watch it on YouTube: See the video.
