From Book Draft to Author Status
Understatement: The publishing industry has changed dramatically since the late 20th Century. Back then, a handful of big houses were essentially gatekeepers making decisions on what book buyers could read. Digital printing and the internet have democratized publishing so that authors now have a variety of choices about how to produce their work.
With these innovations has come a lot of confusion, along with guised experts capitalizing on the market by hawking “guaranteed” paths to “bestseller status.” Honestly, it takes someone impartial and well-rounded in all aspects of writing and publishing to help you make an informed decision about your project.
One of the first things we’ll chat about, should we work together, is your long-game goal as an author. This will set the trajectory for the development of your manuscript and how you decide to publish.
We will talk through the pros and cons of the traditional, self and hybrid publishing models. Based on the route you choose, I’ll escort you through that process for your book’s highest outcome.
