Sione Aeschliman

Sione Aeschliman walks us through the early steps of the self-publishing journey. In this episode, we talk what you need to have done before looking to publish, the platforms through which one can self-publish, cover design and cover art resources, and best case practices for each of these critical phases.

Sione Aeschliman (pronounced see-OWN ASH-lemon) is an editor and writing coach with a Master’s degree in English and over fifteen years of editing experience who gets massive amounts of satisfaction from helping authors achieve their writing and publishing goals. Creator of the 2017 ShoreIndie Contest for self-publishing authors, she is also a Revise & Resub (#RevPit) editor and is writing a guide to structuring a novel that she intends to self-publish in late 2018 or early 2019. Despite having lived in Portland, Oregon off and on since 1998, she does not own a bicycle and is woefully underprepared for the zombie apocalypse. She does, however, live with an adorkable dog named Milton who’s an Expert Urban Forager. You can learn more about Sione on her website (, and she’d love to hear from you on Twitter @writelearndream or by email at sioneaeschliman(at)gmail(dot)com.
