So I was scrolling through my bookmarks, and realized I have not posted here in several months. We’ve been tied up in editing, art production, and preparing our marketing strategy.
Oh, and I’ve been writing the books too…
It’s amazing what it takes. You sit down in front of a blank page to start a book, and you think that is the hardest part of being a “writer”. Then, once you get published, you realize the work actually now begins. The brushing up of the text — the choosing of fonts. The cover art — the choice of its font. The interior map — and what color each font on it should be. A marketing/book tour plan — and what font looks good on the promo material.
But those are cheap complaints next to the thrill, excitement, and downright honor of having someone like your work so much that they are willing to put money behind it (AND think they will make money off of it).
If you want to get published, just always remember — the Golden Rule holds true in art and literature as much as it does anywhere else in the world. “He who has the gold makes the rules.”
