Adventures in Publishing
I'm going to make this a weekly post you can expect to come on Sundays. This way you can come with me on my journey through self publishing and maybe learn something that can help if you ever decide to take the same journey.
So where am I at with my adventures right now? Well, publishing is a marathon, I have the mindset of a sprinter, so I'm maybe a few feet from the starting line when I'd prefer to be at the finish line. So my first lesson is that patience is a virtue that I need to learn.
So far my book is with an editor getting the grammar, punctuation, and all that fun stuff touched up so that I can offer you the absolutely best book possible. I'm also working with a an artist to design the cover, soon I will have some concept art to show you, might even let you all vote on which one you like the best if I can't decide. My artist is very talented and I'm sure I'll have a cover that will grab a hold of anyone that sees it. Again though I've got to wait for it to be finished.
You can also see on the side that I have started a fundraising campaign to help me defray the costs of publishing the book. I've already got the editor and the artist covered but I will need help with printing the book and doing a marketing campaign. Don't think I'm asking for something for nothing though, You'll see that I've got five donation levels all the way from $1 to $100 and you get special gifts and eternal gratitude from me no matter how much you donate. You can go donate HERE
That's it for this week. I'm in a holding pattern waiting on my editor and artist. Hopefully next week I'll have something more exciting to report and will have maybe taken another step towards the end of this marathon.
Thank you all for your support.
