DeKalb County resident Leslie E. Royal, an author and freelance journalist who has written for national outlets for two decades, has released a new manuscript to help you discover the author in you.

The how-to guide is entitled “How to Write and Self-Publish Your Book for FREE with Amazon’s CreateSpace: An Easy Way to Complete Your Manuscript in Seven Stress-FREE Steps.”

Royal said the guide is for procrastinators, those with busy schedules like hers and those who don’t know where to begin. She provides step-by-step instructions on how to write and self-publish in a matter of weeks.

“Over my 20-year writing career, I have had countless individuals share that they want to write their first book. Their primary dilemma is they just don’t know where to start,” said Royal.

Royal said her new book includes helpful resources, an opportunity to journal and a fill-in-the-blank workbook that inspires those who want to tell their stories to get started immediately.

“I figured that no one wants to read a 200-page book on how to write a book! Therefore, while being comprehensive, I focused on making it as short, simple and stress-free as possible.”

Royal shares how to get started, stay focused, meet deadlines and upload the book directly to Amazon’s CreateSpace for free.

Royal’s articles have appeared in magazines such as Upscale, Fortune, Essence, Black Enterprise, and other international outlets. She covers consumer finance, careers and lifestyle issues.

In addition to her new how-to guide, Royal is the author of “Leslie’s Lane The Book!: Your One Stop Internet Resource Guide to Links for Jobs, Inspiration, Discounts, FREE Stuff, Scholarships, Travel & More!”

Royal’s how-to guide is distributed by Amazon in more than 15 countries. The book can be purchased for $9.95 at: For e-book lovers, the manuscript is also available on Kindle.
