One would think, after a couple published books in... I'm use to this feeling. WRONG! In my personal and professional life, I appreciate order. That said, I knew weeks ago the day I planned to submit my manuscript for print. Yet, I still get nervous. Clearly, I know most things done allows a redo. But sometimes at a monetary value. Not to mention, timing is everything.
So, let me paint the picture for you. Prior to submitting Wednesday Just Got Better, the day Leland dialed 9-1-1 I proofread via print (and in color) and over the laptop more times that I could count. Like any other author, I felt the desire to change the content here and there. One day, my husband was like "Rayn, the more you read it... the more you will want to revise." I think that is human nature. Yet, I would still print, view, revise and REPEAT. Then finally submission came. I followed my "Before You Submit" notes, did a little meditation, hit submit and then walked the dog. That is the short painting. The true canvas was very detailed.
Being a self-published author comes with upfront cost, long nights and research. Meaning, this method of publishing you not only serve as the author or the visionary. You are the creator for marketing and develop. In my opinion, the success of your book is depending upon the bounds you've set. Will I ever opt to publish traditionally? Good question, I am not certain. The method I have followed thus far works, it's just very hands on. Then I ask myself, Would You Want It Any Other Way?
Please note: It's ideal and suggested to hire an editor for your work if you are publishing traditional or non-traditional.
