Self-editing gives you more scrutiny over your books, but also gives you more responsibility: First, you need to make the work professional and then you need to share the file with Createspace and Kindle (my preferences). Second, you need to present your books to the right people. When you hear about a firm from their ads and they say they "accept manuscripts" and ask for a telephone number, and then call you and say "we would like to release your work, you just have to be cautious for x, y, z.....
These businesses earn their living with authoring and have no incentives to proactively advertise or sell your books (even though they put an arms and legs in a "press release" or sign no one....) It can be reassuring and comfortable to get help, especially if you only want a work that shows your boyfriends and mates.
However, if you want a good old story to make a livin' profit, you need to keep the cost down and do as much as possible yourself. You can use our free style sheets to help you. Successfully publishes almost exclusively depend on what kind of books you have authored, how many people are looking for this kind of books and whether your books satisfy them or not - but no matter what kind of books you have authored, you want to get as many people as possible, right?
Of course, the first real problem is the completion of the work - most authors never do so. A clear card or heading can help to get more words on the page for your first album. Remain highly motivity-not everyone will be able to fully grasp or endorse your books projects.... but don't wait for that either.
The letter of a textbook is your option (you choose to dedicate several hundred lessons to your literature babies, rather than to them - your boyfriends and your families. Type every single word - nothing works better than a everyday typing habits, and my most prolific buddies are NOT the ones who give them the most words per lesson..... they type a little, consequently, until it is done.
The completion of a work should be your main focus, and I think in most cases a particular work should take less than a year (so the same individual who began it will finish it, too). Don't work on your work while you're leaving. Skipping the tough parts or leaving coarse notices. When you are sure you have everything in the right place, you can go back and begin the revision, improve the dialog, fill in the settings and descriptions, fill in the background story and your mood and write the first and last few words for each section clean.
By formatting your text early with our styles, you can move chapter or section by drag-and-drop while working on your work. However, don't let yourself be swept away by the planing and the plot, at some point you just have to begin to write and understand the words. You up for release?
As soon as you have your printed and e-book format and upload your books to Createspace and Kindle, your books should be up and running in a few business hours! Draft2Digital allows you to sell your books (they also have some great editing tools) if you don't want to be an Amazon-exclusiv.
