Saturday, April 5, 2014, was a milestone for me. I completed the first forms required by WestBow Press for submitting my next two books. This entails composing the text for the back covers, ideas for the front covers, excerpts for Amazon, WestBow, and Barnes and Noble sites, a brief biography, a story synopsis for each book, and uploading each book to WestBow’s site. My head was spinning by the time I finished.

However, with that part of the production and publishing process completed, it’s time for me to create pages for introductions, credits, reader activities, resources, and any special information I want to include in these books. As you can see, there’s much more to publishing a book than writing a story!

Now I wait for reviews and evaluations from WestBow Press about what I sent them. Follow along from this beginning step to full publication, I hope to enlighten and encourage anyone interested in writing and publishing his or her own book.

What about you? Where are you in the process of writing and publishing your book? Are you a traditional, vanity, or self-publishing author? Please leave a reply and share with me where you are on this adventurous road in an author’s world. Thank you for stopping by today.
