Here's what I've learned from this experience:
- Expect everything to take twice as long as you think it should.
- Just because I have a deadline, that doesn't mean everyone else is operating on the same timetable.
- Publishing is a journey just like everything else in life.
- Make the most of all the down time by promoting the book in as many ways as possible. As Dan Miller says, "Once you have the book published you have 10% of the work completed..."
I'll keep you informed...
