Self Publishing Part 3
Are you ready to move on with Self Publishing Part 3? I am here to tell you Rome wasn’t built in a day! You must buckle down and focus on the end result. Make lists with daily points to complete. I would not make that list too long. Many times we all are anxious to get the job done but lose ourselves because it overwhelms us. I set a goal of completing certain areas of book writing on a weekly basis. Don’t let yourself fall into a slump, it’s time to get real.
1-Focus on illustrations – this may be illustrations you draw, select from various friends or the internet, or need the help of a professional. Don’t make the mistake thinking you can do it by yourself. Don’t forget to get permission and a signed contract to use the images in your book. You will also need a bio page of your preferred illustrator.
2-Focus on your book contents page – arrange your chapters with a focus on the reader instead of the author. Chapters require a flow of information to give the reader an easy guide throughout the book.
3-Focus on quotes – quotes from famous people can give your book a sense of ownership and enhance the book tremendously.
4- Focus on costs– a very important part of the book writing process. Talk with your advisor and get a detailed list of items required to complete your project. Don’t just assume the company will cover costs such as, book cover, copyright, etc. Research and research your options.
5- Focus on distribution costs will rise with many attributing factors such as design elements, color illustrations, and selecting a kindle version. I hope by now you did your research and are on your way to having your book cost under control. Yes, things will come up but keep your head focused on costs.
