From here to there…
How do you get…
At first glance, the process looks extremely complex.
However, like most processes, once you break it down into small steps, the seemingly impossible becomes possible. (If you look closely and find the main shapes, you’ll realise that the apparent complexity is simply due to a few extra lines, adjoining shapes, decorations and detail.)
Similarly, the unattainable dream of publishing a book suddenly becomes possible once you understand the steps.
As a ‘process person’ (and mum of four) it came naturally for me to break the independent publishing journey into the following eight steps:
Step 1. Content Collation
Step 2. Editing
Step 3. Some Legal Bits – ISBNs and Cataloguing
Step 4. Book Design – Interior
Step 5. Book Design – Exterior
Step 6. Distribution Platforms (Printing your book)
Step 7. More Legal Bits – Legal Deposit
Step 8. Marketing
Is there a process that you can make easy?
What would you have if you provided your step-by-step guide to others?
Would this assist them to learn and leverage from your knowledge?
