Breaking away from the cookie-cutter mould of publishing a book and choosing to do it yourself can feel like stepping into unchartered, shark-infested waters. In this week’s blog we give you a glimpse into self-publishing and getting stocked in a book shop from someone who’s done it herself.
Heidi Yi is a Sydney-based cosmetics entrepreneur who recently broke $500,000 in sales and spending on Bartercard combined, and coincidentally reached her 500th transaction on mybc, Bartercard’s online trading platform. The make-up artist, cosmetics manufacturer and Bartercard member is also a self-published author of two books, ‘Pro-Makeup by Heidi’ and ‘Oops! I self-published’. The second details her foray into self-publishing, and breaks the process down step-by-step for the first time venturer.
