From Writing, to Publication, and Beyond
We’ve been talking for a while about getting all the how-to links in one place, and this is the first step to doing that. I’m going to attempt to list, step-by-step, every little thing you must do between writing ‘the end’ on your manuscript, and the long tail of a backlist. What I’m asking our readers to do is to add anything I’ve missed in the comments. I will link to articles Mad Genii have written, being on this blog, or their personal blogs, where I can. Then we will all work on filling in any blanks and/or updating material in the upcoming month. Finally, we plan to do… something with all of it. Immediate possibility is simply a page of links here at the MGC. Long term would be something that you can access like a book (yes, I’m being coy. There are several of us, and we need to make more plans!).
Promotion and Marketing
All right, folks, I’m taking this live… as you suggest something in the comments, I’ll either put up a new link, or a bullet point that we here at MGC will fill in soon. Open for suggestions… Now!
