As the pages of 2023 turn, I find myself immensely grateful for the many books that have woven their way into the fabric of my professional journey as a publishing consultant. This year has been a literary journey, navigating through the diverse landscapes of genres that span from the ethereal realms of fantasy to the grounded and poignant prose of memoir and poetry. Each book I’ve had the privilege to produce bears the unique fingerprints of its author, and together, they form a kaleidoscopic collection that mirrors the vast spectrum of human experience
Depending on an author’s goals, self-publishing a book can come with very little cost or can come with expenses nearing the $10,000 – $15,000 range. For most of our authors, on average, an author may spend up to $10,000 to bring their book to fruition after hiring a publishing consultant, a qualified team of editors, a cover designer, a book layout designer, and the additional production items such as an ISBN or establishing a publishing imprint. For these reasons, some authors have turned to crowdfunding as a way to offset the costs or to fund the book production completely.
It’s November! Which means it’s also National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo, for short!) Now, NaNoWriMo has historically been acknowledged as the month to write a full novel start to finish, but some writers, we take it as a kick-in-the-butt to write something each day – whether that’s one short story a day or a piece of poetry a day.
