This post was provoked by the many people who have asked me questions about authoring and publishing books over the years. So I thought I’d jot down my answers in one post for ease of future reference.
Presently, I’ve written over nine books published by five different publishers. And thankfully (surprisingly), each one has done well. So while I claim no expertise in this area, I can write from what I’ve experienced so far.
A few of the points below apply only to first-time authors. But most apply to all authors, aspiring and established.
