Slack Time

I am occasionally guilty of over-planning and under-executing.  That said, I’m glad to have treated the business of self-publishing seriously.  As we like to say these days, there are a lot of moving parts.

A small corner of the publishing plan

Back during my initial over-planning (February), I laid out the many steps of the process I saw ahead, and I put in plenty of slack time.  I’ve now consumed most of that precious time.  I just uploaded the Fatal Score e-book, as painstakingly modified. It’s the third such upload.  I also put up the interior material for the paperback book to two sources.

Next week, the e-book goes live, though the ‘official’ launch is November 18th.  I’ll be sending requests for advance copy readers during the next week.

  1. John, A couple of thoughts.
    When we talked last week, I forgot something. Doesn’t Amazon still send you a free proof copy (paperback) so you can see what it looks like before it goes live?
    Also, when I put mine up on Amazon, I had some control over when it went live and how long it stayed live. Isn’t that possible anymore?
