That said, I am announcing that the Up from Here project will be released in December, in time for the holidays, rather than my originally intended date of 16 September, my late Uncle Harvey's birthday.
Geez. I'm not sure how other publishers get it done so fast and make it look so easy; but slow and steady is a good pace, as long as it's done right.
As writers, I think it's important to keep in mind that the writing and publishing process is going to be different for each of us, depending on the routes we take. Some writers will choose to self-publish/POD publish, while others will continue to pursue the traditional model. Others may find a way to use a combination of both models. But it is all a great, and apparently, lengthy process. Writing is just the beginning.
After publishing agreements are signed, then the work goes to the editors. Then, we can work on our marketing and distribution strategies. And then, the project can be prepared for and go to press. Then, there is more marketing and publicity stuff to do and keep doing, if any project is ever going to be successful. Whew!
New Renaissance Ink is an up-and-coming publisher, and our steps will continue to be slow and deliberate, for the sake of quality writing and effective marketing and distribution. By working closely with my attorney on all of our publishing agreements, I'm making sure that my words are true to my intent, for my writers and my business. Geez Louise, is he methodical and thorough. A good thing, I know. My hope is that the writers and readers of New Renaissance Ink products will benefit to the fullest extent from our efforts.
