I haven’t posted in a very long while. It’s not that I haven’t been busy. I got a bug in my bonnet to make myself write a book. And actually FINISH it this time.
A couple of days ago, I got the final rounds of edits back from my beloved developmental editor. And now it’s with the line editor. She’ll have it back to me around May 5th.
What’s left? Um…since this is my first rodeo with self-publishing, I’m going to shotgun here and list some of the things I think or know I still have to do:
- Write a blurb. I suck at these. Like “eighth grader oral book report” kinda suck.
- Formatting. I have no friggin idea at this point. I’m hoping the Scrivner gods will deliver me a perfectly formatted manuscript.
- Mailing List. After three hair-pulling days, I was finally able to get the newsletter sign-up thingy working on my website. Now I just have to find people and convince them they need it. (People like YOU! So get on it! Kidding, I’m not going to hunt you down and force you to sign up. Yet.)
- Newsletter content. If you think I suck at blog posts, wait ’til you see my newsletter. #cryinginmywhiskey
I think that’s enough pain and misery for one post. Happy Monday, everyone. Now, get out there and be the lion!
