From Manuscript Draft to Published Book!
It was fun being a guest expert on “The Write Hour Podcast” talking with Joyce Glass about the important steps to consider once your manuscript is written. There’s a lot of steps in order to turn it into a professionally published book! Joyce and I discussed the important steps to take when your draft is completed. It’s important for you to understand the processes you can complete yourself yourself and when it’s time to bring in the professionals. We had a great time chatting on the topics below and other things too:
- Self-editing – when it’s okay for you to edit and when it’s time to hand it off to the pros;
- Copy-editing/proofing – hire the pros to edit your manuscript; they make sure the book has consistent flow and correct sentence structure, grammar, spelling… (your professional written image matters); and
- Book design – why having your book professionally formatted matters.
Joyce and I cover more in The Write Hour Podcast. Take a listen and Peter and I would love to hear your thoughts. What’s your biggest takeaway?
Until next time, remember to #WriteYourWay,
