Most authors consider editing a basic, even fundamental aspect of the book production process, and with good reasons. Yet, some authors, especially independent or self publishing authors, don’t consider editing as an important part, but in fact, it’s one of the most important aspects.
The dream to become a world-renowned author is common to almost all authors around the world. Everyone wants to become the next big thing, but only a few succeed in major magnitude. Most writers might have to find their own resources to print their books, because it’s not always easy to find a publishing house willing to print your book.
Self-publishing is perfect for authors to have a total control on the book process, but they have to do it on their own, so there is no room for mistakes. If you are in the process of writing a book, you should know that there are 3 major stages in the completion of any kind of self-published book: writing the book, publishing the book and marketing the book.
The first few lines of a novel are generally those details that take longer time to be developed. The first line is the readers’ first approach to the book, and right there authors have the chance to captivate them. As an author, you need the first line to be fascinating enough, so readers will keep reading.
The world of publishing has evolved tremendously in the last years, but still there are people that for some reason, have a negative perception about self publishing. Maybe it has to do with the fact that some self publishing authors make colossal mistakes that prevent their books from being taken seriously. If you want to be considered as a professional, successful author, you need to avoid these mistakes, before you start printing by yourself.
Some books, no matter how great, will never be an option for traditional publishers. However, just because those publishers don’t consider your book as a profitable chance, this doesn’t mean it hasn’t great chances to be a success. Nowadays, lots of authors see self-publishing as a better option for them to sell their books. Self-publishing is a great option for millions of authors who want to write and to be read; and niche marketing has come to increase the chance of self-publishing authors to find their audiences out there.
