Polish Before You Publish – Editing

Welcome back! Last week I gave a brief overview of the three things every self published author needs to do before they hit the publish button. Today I’m going to talk a little more about editing, and why it’s one of the most important steps to take before you publish. Read more

Polish Before You Publish

The time has finally come. You’ve just typed “The End”, and now your great masterpiece of a novel is finished. Time to upload that sucker onto Amazon and hit the publish button. You’re on your way to becoming a literary legend!

Whoa there, Next Greatest Living Author Ever. Get your cursor off that publish button. I hate to tell you this, but you’re not even close to being finished. There are three more steps that you absolutely must take before you hit the publish button. These steps are crucial to insuring that your book is a quality product that readers are going to want to buy. Not taking these steps is the equivalent of giving birth, then leaving that newborn on your front steps and shouting “All right, go out there and make your parents proud!”. You wouldn’t dream of doing such a thing to a baby; why would you do that to your book? Your book that you slaved over, that you poured your heart into for days, weeks, maybe even years. Your words deserve so much more than that, so take the time to polish before you publish. Read more

January News and Updates

2016 is starting off with a bang at Sudden Insight Publishing headquarters. We have several projects in the works at the moment, and thought you’d like to know just what we’re up to…

We’re getting ready to release our very first anthology, Paws for a Tale, on January 29th. This volume includes eight short stories that tie-in to a series or book that each author has previously published, but every single tale stands on its own. It’s a great way to get a little taste of what these authors write, as well as help a deserving charity. All profits from this book will be donated to the SPCA, as our way of saying thank you for all of the wonderful things they do for abused animals.
