Publish my book recommendations for aspiring and established authors? Get Your Book Edited: Professional editing is a must. No book is perfect, but editorial assistance can help you get a lot closer. There are a lot of different kinds of edits, so be sure you know which you need before you hire an editor. Developmental editors check your book for flow and consistency. They suggest revisions when something about the language doesn’t seem right. Copyeditors correct spelling mistakes and adjust grammar. Editors are necessary in the self-publishing process.
Editing: Often overlooked, it is vital to have a professional editor review your book. One of the biggest criticisms of self-published books is their lack of editing. We have provided a list of editors for your convenience. Pay for professional cover design: In this day of “do it yourself,” many self-publishers do not consider the negative impact a poorly designed cover may have on sales. Professional cover design will get you noticed as a legitimate player in the industry.
Mind your own business. Author Stephanie Bond, who has had her work published both traditionally and independently, told USA Today that writers need to learn about more than just writing: To this day, when aspiring writers ask me what courses they should take — English? Creative writing? Should they pursue their master’s in fine arts?—I tell them they should take business classes. (I’m such a killjoy.) But I see so many people with talent who flounder in their careers because they’re not prepared for all the business decisions they have to make before and after they sell a book—how to get a good agent, how to recognize a fair offer, and how to hold out for what they want. And making money is only part of it. A writer also has to know how to manage and invest their money. To be a writer is to run your own business. And if you don’t mind your business, no one else will.
