There’s more to writing a book than writing a book.
That sounds crazy, of course, but if you’ve ever tried it, you know exactly what I mean.
You see, the actual writing is almost nothing compared to what has to happen after the writing is done.
Of course, if your only goal is to write the book, that’s fine. But if you want someone else to read it, that’s when the real work begins.
For years I’ve wanted to write a book and I’ve known all along what kind I would write and what would be in it. So, I finally decided to take the plunge, so to speak.
And now I have three books written, almost four. No, you haven’t seen them on bookshelves because, right now, they’re pretty much still files on my computer.
After the writing, proofing, editing and such, there’s layout, cover design and so much more.
My first book will be “in print” in a few weeks. Whether it ever gets to a shelf other than in our own home remains to be seen.
