With the advent of DIY publishing where writers can publish their book with the click of a button, many concerns arise.
Unfortunately, many new writers make the mistake of using unprofessional design on the cover and typesetting throughout the interior of the book, which causes their first book to look highly unprofessional.
Around this time of year, you may often see enticing promotions from publishing companies that promise to publish your book by Christmas. Be careful of big promotions like these, and make sure you’re actually getting a professional edit and a quality cover.
Truthfully, being in print by Christmas could be an unrealistic goal, but it really depends on the condition of your book.
