Once your agent has sent your work out into the world, it’s wise to find something else to work on. Starting a new manuscript or revising an old one can occupy your mind and time. But there are some other things worth considering, too.
For the next week or two, I will be posting on things I’ve learned from PUBLICIZE YOUR BOOK!, a title I discovered while searching for an agent. Because really, what better time is there to prepare for your book’s future than the months before its sale?
Each day I’ll tackle a different topic author Jacqueline Deval has covered in her book. Using my mid-grade novel currently on submission, I’ll work through her suggestions, including what I come up with here. (I’m the type of person who likes concrete examples, and I hope what I create might be of some help to you).
These posts won’t be an overview of the book so much as a collection of steps to start you thinking about your book as a product, and you its greatest promotor.
Come back tomorrow and join the discussion!
