One thing we particularly like about being a small press is that we can spend more time with authors, helping to nurture their career and guide them through the wild and wooly world of publishing. While we try to do this with every author we publish, we also realize that there are other folks out there who might benefit from a publisher’s-eye view of the process, and who might have some great commentary to add to the discussion, too.
With that in mind, we’re kicking off a new, irregular blog series: After the Launch.
Writing the book is only the first step. After that, you have to edit, tune, tweak, polish, query, submit, wait, revise, query again, resubmit, revise, wait, wait, wait some more, revise again, and then – THEN – finally your book sees the light of day, all gussied up for its launch.
And yet publishing the book is only Step Two. So much more happens after the launch, at least for any writer who’s looking to have both a successful book and a successful career.
After the Launch will take a look at some of the things that happens, well, after the launch, and talk about how you can continue building momentum and interest, and continue to develop your career as a writer, once your book is on shelves.
Is there any aspect of post-launch publishing that you’d like us to talk about? Drop us a line! We want this to be a conversation between readers, writers, publishers, and more, so we’d love to know what you’re curious about and what you’re thinking.
