Are you publishing your first book? Congratulations! Would you like a road map to show you the book production process and outline each step to go from manuscript to a professional, printed book or ebook listed on Amazon?
Over the years of designing books for independent publishers I’ve recognized first-time publishers could use a quick reference guide on time frames, tasks they are responsible for, and how to work with contractors such as editors, designers and printers.
I created an easy-to-follow 10-page guide with checklists of action items, standard time frames, an overview of the design process, and where to obtain important items (such as ISBN and LCCN numbers) on the Internet.
This guide will help you become familiar with your role as the general contractor; what to do yourself, and when you should consider hiring a subcontractor. I also have links to important websites you need to access during the publishing process.
Learn how to save time and money, in what order to do certain tasks, what to avoid, and what you absolutely must never forget to do if you want a professional book.
