Hi authors!

I’m Chelsea Fagan, and I have been publishing books both traditionally and independently for the past thirteen years. I’ve sold well over a quarter million copies, licensed nearly a dozen international editions, and been featured in best-of lists from NPR to Harper’s Bazaar to Refinery29.

My life is all about financial transparency, and in empowering creatives to know and actually secure their worth, and self-publishing is an incredibly powerful tool that puts control back in the hands of authors.

I’ve partnered with Gatekeeper Press — the company I personally used to self-publish my romance novel in 2023 — to create this free, comprehensive, 25-page guide on everything I wish I knew about self-publishing before I started.

These are my best insights, editorially and financially, and will set you on the path to make self-publishing work for you, and to understand why it’s a tool that even people who also traditionally publish (like myself!) benefit greatly from leveraging.

I wish you the absolute best of luck on your publishing journey, and hope my guide makes the ride just that much easier!
