One of the first questions I ask an author.

Was your book professionally edited?  I thought this was a given – You write, you edit, you proofread and you publish. But the truth is, many self-published authors often skip this step due to the cost. And this will cost you. But if you do decide to skip this step, it could cost you more in sales.


You’re excited. Who wouldn’t be? Your book is finally done!

But once you’ve clicked publish, it’s too late to undo anything.

Every author will tell you about the mistakes they made the first time around, just ask. They’ll tell you about the things they forgot to do or the things they wished they’d done. You will make mistakes the first time around. But take your time and try to minimize them.
