Don’t Push The Big Red Button

One of my peeps on Google Plus, a Mister John Ward, had a super handy link to post today, and I figured I needed to come share it here with the few of you that read my blog with any regularity.

(Which implies I post regularly, and you know that doesn’t happen. But just go with it for now.)

William Hertling, a person with whom I’ve had absolutely no familiarity until today, wrote up an excellent check list in PDF format (clicky, clicky, clicky!) for those of us seeking a self-publishing route for our writing.

To sum it up, here are the sections:

Phase 1: Pre-launch

  • Book Focused Activities
  • Web / Social Media
  • Other

Phase 2: Book Launch

  • Timing
  • Weeks 1-4

Phase 3: Post Launch

Phase 4: Influencers

This is a seriously hardcore (and very handy) checklist. Eight pages long. Print them. Print them all.

Also, don’t get too ahead of yourself. Finish the writing first, and then start checking things off the list. I see you hovering over that upload button. Stop it.
