About the Program:
You’re in the process of writing or have written your manuscript, and you’re considering self-publishing as a viable option to put that book into reader’s hands. But for your book to rival a traditionally published book (and what writer doesn’t want that?), you’re going to need to hire a production partner—or team of partners—who not only possess the requisite expertise, but who truly connect with and care about the words on the pages you’ve worked so hard to write. But in this likely unfamiliar arena, how do you know what’s important to you or what questions to ask?
To cut through the overwhelm, Stacey Aaronson, founder of The Book Doctor Is In, will lay the foundation by distinguishing between DIY and self-publishing, then pinpoint the six vital overarching questions (most writers seldom consider) to ask yourself, with copious examples of the answers that will best guide you in determining if a prospective provider—editor, cover designer, layout artist, illustrator, proofreader, publishing facilitator, etc.—will be right for you. The months you spend with your single all-encompassing partner or team of experts will prove to be more gratifying—and successful on all counts—if they meet as many of your expectations and goals as possible.
No one wants to enter into a partnership feeling vulnerable or lacking confidence in the contractor’s abilities or level of trustworthiness, so exploring what your wishes are before you even think about interviewing specialists will be vital as you embark on your publishing journey. You’ll not only learn a lot about yourself and your goals in the top-notch production of your book, but you’ll learn the importance of thinking like a publisher and gain a new level of confidence in bringing your labor of love to beautiful fruition.
