Episode 43

S11 E43 Misconception #2: You can do “good enough” editing and book design, so there’s no reason to pay for it.

  1. “Because most writers have totally unrealistic concepts of how publishing works.” — Jim Harrison 
  2. Similar to trying to fix your own electric (or your own plumbing), you’re MUCH better off getting professional help.
  3. There are more than 400 steps to publishing a book. (Why would you spend the time, when instead you can be out speaking and connecting with potential clients?)
  4. Remember that most publishers only offer “one slice of pizza”. So make sure you get the whole pizza pie instead. Yummy!
  5. [TAKE ACTION] Find the right publisher for you, preferably someone who offers concierge, comprehensive, full-service publishing all under one roof!
