- It’s fully drafted. Now I’m fact-checking
- I’m awaiting eagerly a meeting with a friend who will help pin down some critical geeky, techie details. That’s my last step!
- After that, I’ll re-read–for the fginal time I hop
- I still need a cover. I’m finding images (like the ones I’ve posted in other articles on this topic, to see if they resonate long-term with my feeling for the book
- I still need an editor. I have a couple of ideas. Anyone have one they love?
- I have the publisher set up–the same people I’ve worked with on all my books. They’re amazing–fast, affordable, and good to work with
Sending it to the publisher of course doesn’t mean I’m done. It simply means a new TODO list that focuses on marketing. More on that later…
