I love writing and I want to give you a short list of the do’s and dont ‘s for a new Indie Author:
- Don’t sign up for an author event without the book in your hand! This may cause you sleepless nights and induce panic to lead you to purchase your book from a speedy and very expensive printer. But you will have a book at last.
- If your entire book publication is occurring via the Internet, write details and print out contracts with receipts. Document and keep track of all of your money spending as well as earning.
- Get contact numbers and actual names for the entire team of professionals who are helping you bring your dream to fruition. Make sure you are in contact with your formatter, on the off chance your handler has quit her job and your messages are going into the black hole of noanswerbackland! Know each company’s business process.
- Any great cover artist will give you 3 or 4 potential images. If you want a color changed or a different font, ask your artist. They are collaborating with you for your project.
- Edit! Edit! Edit! Proof! Proof! Proof! Because wonder of wonders or perhaps horror of horrors-you have omitted the number 11 in your number sequence after the book has been formatted!
- Write more than a dedication in the form of a thank you page because it takes so very many people to complete a book. As an Indie writer, there are so many people who have been instrumental in your creation and they deserve acknowledgement.
- When you have finally produced that book, give yourself a pat on the back for accomplishing the task!
- And lastly, be thankful you have the talent and skill set to tell your wonderful story!
Life is short and art is long.-Seneca
