I am now on my third round of proofreading and editing. It is such a funny thing; I have always thought that writing a book was where the work was involved; now I’m seeing a different picture.
Having spent my time working on articles, scripts and web copy, the process is much quicker and to the point. However
A novel is something very different. I feel like it has been a long labour and at last the day of the birth is in sight.
Of course once the proofing and editing is finished and a cover and the book is out there, that really will only be the beginning.
Next will come the marketing and advertising. The endless work involved in putting the book in front of as many interested readers as possible.
Hard work Yes, but also the most wonderful fun too.
