TURN 'ASPIRING AUTHOR' INTO 'PUBLISHED AUTHOR' IN 2017

Posted by Kerry McDuling (Publicious Book Publishing) on 14 December 2016

At this time of year, many of us take the opportunity to look back over the year that has passed, and take account of what we feel we achieved in the various sectors of our lives.  A bit of a break and distance over the Christmas break rewards us with some perspective about what we wish to achieve in the New Year.

Perhaps you finished writing your book during the course of the year. That's a fantastic achievement. Or was it completed a few years ago, and is still hidden in your computer files? Many aspiring authors have already made a great start on their fiction or non-fiction book, and may even have finished it, but are unsure about the next step. Therefore, they don't take any action and another year passes without being able to say they are the published author of a Professional quality Ebook.

During the next few weeks, as you take some time out from your normal occupation or daily routine, I encourage you to create an achievable plan that will put you on the path toward publishing your book. If you have finished, or almost finished, your manuscript, source a quality provider of Manuscript assessments/copy editing/proofreading services.  This will help you determine how much more work is needed on your part, or if you are ready to move forward with an Affordable book publishing service, and bring your book to life!

Once your manuscript is polished, next up is a Book typesetting service, and you will also be involved with selecting your Book cover designs. What follows after that is affordable book publishing, and the publisher you choose to work with will also assist you with Global Book and Ebook Distribution, as well as Print On Demand options.

Now that you are a published author, no longer an aspiring one, you have the option to engage in Book marketing/publicity, to share the message that your book is complete and ready to be sold. Either hire a professional consultant to do it for you, or conduct your own research and do the marketing yourself.

The whole journey to becoming a published author may feel daunting at the outset, but with the support of a professional self-publisher, this process should be rewarding and fun. Make 2017 the year that you achieve your dreams of publishing your manuscript, so that this time next year, you have something to be very proud of.

I am very grateful and honoured to have found Publicious. As a first time author, there was SO MUCH to learn, figure out and understand. I know that without the help and support of the Publicious team, I would not have achieved my dream. I contacted a few places last year regarding publishing, but I connected only with Andy, and that's why I chose to engage his services. It turned out to be an exceptional choice, pat myself on the back for that :-)

I asked media personality Ray Weeks about 'Publico'. He thought I was talking about 'Publicious' and said he had heard good reports. That's how I came to meet Andy McDermott. The spectacular cover design was a Publicious masterpiece, my sketches had been redrawn to illustration quality and my photographs inserted. Blitz was launched in good time for the February 19th 2012 Bombing of Darwin Day celebrations.
