Encouraged by my best friend Justin Livi and informed by Zoe Winters’ wonderful book Self-Publishing: Becoming An Indie Author, I’ve decided to begin the process of self-publishing Mutt (and eventually its forthcoming sequels.) Today I completed my registration to do business in the state of Pennsylvania. Three months ago I created Lords Of Autumn, Inc., an imaginary business whose primary function was as an inside joke. As of today, Lords Of Autumn is the trade name under which I’ll manage my self publication.
I’ve never been a business owner before; even though Lords Of Autumn presently comprises only me and has no assets, it’s kind of a breathtaking feeling. I have a lot of work to do in order to get Mutt released, but I couldn’t be more excited.
