Note from Nick: This post is long. Like almost 4,000 words long. If you don’t want to read the whole thing on the blog, I’ve prepared a (FREE) downloadable report instead… just scroll down to grab it!
I remember when I finished my first book, a thriller called The Golden Crystal. I thought to myself, “this is it. I’ve done it. I wrote a book.”
And while I was, technically, correct (the book was, after all, finished), I wasn’t even close to being able to launch it into the world.
As you know, finishing a book isn’t the same thing as launching a book. One is a singular, independent activity that takes nothing more than dedicated consistency and a few good ideas. The other takes much more planning, administration, organization, and careful oversight.
It also takes a lot of work.
…And that’s pretty much why authors don’t “launch” their books…
