Spring, the season of rebirth, is almost here. Why not start off your spring with the “birth” of your self-published book and go from hopeful writer to published author? Here are five reasons why March is the perfect time to take the leap.

1) St. Patrick’s Day – I love reasons to give gifts to yourself. We’re always so focused on giving to others that we neglect the things we want and need most. Celebrate this Irish holiday by making your dream of publication come true.

2) It’s Almost Tax Time – April is a busy month for self-publishing companies because people use their tax return checks to pay for their self-publishing expenses. Avoid the tax time rush by starting the publication process in March.

3) Done Before Vacation – If you start the self-publishing process now, you will probably have your book finished by summer. This means you can enjoy your summer vacation without worrying about publishing. Maybe you can even watch people read your book as they lounge on the beach.

4) One Less Thing On Your To-Do List – We are only three months into 2012. Why not cross publishing a book off your list early so you can enjoy the rest of the year as a published author?

5) Give Aways – Most self-publishing companies offer monthly  promotions and special offers. For instance, this month Outskirts Press authors can receive a free enhanced interior.

So what are you waiting for? Start making your dreams come true.
