Anyone into self-publishing?

I know agdhani is working her way through it - how are you going with it, my dear? Anyone else?

I recently discovered an interesting blog post by rachelmanija on just that very subject!

Rachel is a successful self-published author and she gives some good tips and even talks about how much money she's made from self-pub in this post. I asked her if it would be okay to link her post to this comm as we probably have some people here who would find it interesting, and she very kindly gave me permission.

If anyone else here has been through this process and has comments to make about Rachel's post, or anyone wants to talk about self-pub in general, please do comment here; I'm sure many of us would like to hear about your experience and/or discuss things.
