What does it take to… Series

(Sorry JK, I’ll ask you next time, Pinky Promise)

Exciting news on the blog front!

Some of my friends have asked me questions about what it takes to write a book and get in published, so next week, starting on Monday, I’ve decided to run a series of blog posts under the banner ‘What does it take to publish a best-selling book’.
Of course, as I haven’t published a best-seller, I’ve had to rope in some of my colleagues from the writerly world of books to help me!
I’ve got five distinguished guests lined up and I’m delighted to announce them right now:

Debi Alper will be talking to us about the self-editing course she runs for the Writer’s Workshop and explaining to how polish that manuscript until it shines!

Jude White will be getting to grips with proof reading and telling us all we need to know about dotting the ‘i’s and crossing the ‘t’s.

Andrew Brown from Design for Writers will be uncovering the secrets of award-winning book covers.

Shaz Goodwin from Fiction Addiction Book tours will be telling us all about her novel business – co-ordinating Blog Tours for books.

And we celebrate Friday with an extra special post from real-live best-selling author, Joanne Phillips, who has held my hand through my own self-publishing journey this year.

Thanks to all my guests who have agreed to take part, I can’t wait to read your tips and advice!
I’ve organised these posts to run next week, because I shall be FAR too busy refreshing the Amazon stats to see if I’ve sold any copies of my book yet….
