After having a vanity press (WestBow Press) traditionally publish my book (Asylum), and a small press publisher (Distinguished Press) launch my series (starting with Poison), I've decided to venture into the crazy, awesome world of self-publishing. And I have the perfect book to put out there in such a manner.
By the end of the summer, I plan to release my human chess match story, Checkmate. It's been through the beta-reader process. I'm reading it aloud with my son, just to catch any further editing errors. And I'm reviewing it a final time before beginning the process. I would love to hire a professional editor, but currently, that is outside my budget. But I promise to give you the very best book I can. My designer is working on the final cover.
This book has been a couple years in the making. I've gone through it many times. And it even was a Top 30 Finalist in the 2012 Women of Faith Writing Contest (under it's original title--Xadrez)! I know the quality is there. It's just a matter of the technicalities.
I'll record my process here on my blog. I'm really excited about learning the ins and outs of the self-publishing journey. As an author, it will be beneficial to see what the publishing end is like, even though I'm sure it varies. And then once the book is released, we'll have a huge online party to celebrate!
