Holy schmolies! This is really happening!
I’d never given much thought to the hard work that goes into publishing a book. Networking. Designing a website and hooking up accounts to every social networking site available. Becoming a great researcher as well as a sales person. Investigating every little niche that might be interested in buying my book. Tax wheeling and dealing with the IRS. The thought that goes behind the design of a book cover.
Lucky for me, my publisher, J. Taylor Publishing, has laid out a step-by-step road map for me to follow. They’re there with excellent answers to all of my questions, and treat me as a person instead of a number. I know there is much to do and learn before October 15th, but I also know someone is there to keep me on the right path toward success.
One foot in front of the other. Dig deep. Leave no part of the unknown publishing world unexplored. That’s my motto, and I’ll stick to it until I’m holding The Glass Man in my hot little hands.
First step: edit the manuscript as thoroughly as I’m able, and find the courage to let it go into the hands of my editor.
