  • Edit the book
  • Then what?

I thought the hard part would be writing the book. Don’t get me wrong, it was hard and time-consuming. But figuring out the next part was definitely harder than anticipated.

It took a lot of research – I read countless blogs (especially digging into Hugh Howey’s posts and JA Konrath’s) and books (the most helpful was the Indie Author Survival Guide by SK Quinn)

Phew. And I’m not there yet. I still need to:

  • Approve a cover design
  • Upload the files into Amazon
  • Order a print proof
  • Start / update social media accounts
  • Plan a launch date
