iUniverse Offers 6 Tips on How To Become a Published Author in 2013
Author Solutions, Inc. (ASI) Senior Vice-President Keith Ogorek, who self-published his first book in 2007,gives 6 tips on publishing your book. He also encourages writers to become self-published authors. ASI is the parent company of iUniverse.
Below are his tips.
- Set a date you want to hold a finished copy of your book—Before you start, pick a date on which you want to hold the first copy of your completed book. Choose a significant day like your 50th birthday, your wedding anniversary or a day that coincides with a life event like a speaking engagement.
- Pay attention to the best time/place for writing productively—Write when you are most productive. One author found that he worked best in the morning, stating that he could get more done in the hour between 7:30 and 8:30 a.m. than he could in the three hours between 2 and 5 p.m.
- Set a schedule that will allow you to hit your target date—So you’ve decided that you work best late at night. Block off that time as your time for writing and stick to it. Make writing just another part of your daily routine, like eating breakfast or taking a shower.
