Oliver MilmanToday on StartupSmart, we get an insider’s tale on the rapidly growing self-publishing industry.

Just five years ago, the idea that a budding author, or a small business owner keen to cash in on their specialist knowledge, could bypass the big publishers at minimal cost would seem fanciful.

However, the arrival of eReaders such as Kindle and vast digital libraries like iBooks has opened up a whole range of possibilities to savvy entrepreneurs.

Today, we speak to US entrepreneur and eBook consultant Sean Roach to get his top tips on how to make money from the upheaval in the publishing industry.

Elsewhere, leading investor Steve Torso has some advice on how to approach your capital raising and we have the latest on the start-up scene at this year’s SXSW Festival in Texas.
