Professionals needed to help with writing

Writers’ Expertise – The next step

You’ve read Introductory Acts and What Writer’s Need. Next step is Writers’ Expertise. It is a joint effort from several professionals to put together a final project.

 

Below are a few tips to keep in mind when you get to this stage.

  • Websites are not mandatory, but they are beneficial.
  • Your editor will become your best pal.
  • Publishers – research what avenue you want to pursue.
    • Traditional
    • Small Press
    • Indie
  • Cover art that pops.
  • Formatting needs to be neat and professional.
  • Branding lets readers identify with who you are.
  • Promoting your image with the author world.
  • Marketing your books to readers.

Websites, social media, editors, publishers, cover artists, formatters, etc. This is a beginning list of professional services you need to get familiar with. You can do some of these tasks yourself. Make a list of your skills and work from there. Everything else, you will need to hire out. Search the internet, ask for referrals, make contacts on social media to find someone that understands your vision. Before making a commitment to someone, talk or chat with them so there is an understanding of what you are looking for. And take recommendations. My indie book cover artist recommended the formatter to me. The connection worked knowing they already had an established relationship in the book world.

I hope these tips help you. Over the next several weeks, I will put together a Quickie Sheet to offer you. I am here to share my experience with you so your journey can move along smoothly. If you have any questions, please contact me via email taylor@tayloranne.net

Cover art by EJR Digital Art

I am in love with this cover! Elle at EJR Digital Art took my thoughts and captured the feel I was shooting for. The wedding veil tangled on the driftwood, the bar in the background, and the wedding ring all pieced together in one fabulous cover. Thanke Elle!

Book pre-order and sale links will be posted soon.

Bride Interrupted

Blurb:

With a move to Florida, Kayla plans to change things up a bit. Grandpa’s beach bar would be a fantastic place to please her demanding brides. Beach locale, drinks, and food? Perfect.

Only, a few things stand in her way… Colton, and her brides being attacked and left for dead.

Colton runs Gracie’s Place and doesn’t need interference in the form of Kayla, or her plans for the future of his bar. Women aren’t high on his priority list, especially infuriating women who are trying to run him out.

Who is really attacking Kayla’s clients? Is it Colton, who would rather be left alone to stew in his tortured past? Or some other, more sinister person?

Who will win this battle of brides, bars, and hearts?

Love, hugs, and kisses – Taylor
