Author bio: Carla King has two writing careers – one as an adventure travel writer and another as a self-publishing expert. She used to be a tech writer, which was why she wasn’t afraid to self-publish her first book in 1994, titled Cycling the French Riviera. In 1995, O’Reilly and Associates invited her to pioneer the art of the realtime, online travelogue on something called “the internet” with her American Borders motorcycle diaries, which is now a book. She followed that with realtime dispatches (now called blogs) from China, India, Europe, and Africa.

In the meantime, she kept self-publishing, and soon her writing friends started asking her how. She founded Self-Publishing Boot Camp in 2010 which provides books, seminars, and consulting on every aspect of self-publishing. She also pens the self-publishing column for PBS MediaShift, and her Self-Publishing Boot Camp Guide for Authors is highly acclaimed as the reality check self-publishing authors need.

The book is coming up in its 4th edition for 2018, along with a comprehensive online Self-Publishing Boot Camp course.
