  • Beware of doing it all yourself. You need developmental editing, proof reading, cover design, typesetting, etc.
  • You don’t want your book to look it was self-published. You want it to look like it was published by a big NYC house.
  • If you plant 3 seeds a day, every day, over time, you’ll have a beautiful garden. The same is – true with marketing. It all adds up.
  • Don’t write an encyclopedia. If you have so much content, write several books. Series books sell well.
  • Make sure your proofreader knows Chicago Manual of Style.
  • The book that costs $20,000 to produce could lead to hundreds of thousands of dollars. A book can change your life.
