This is the first post in a multi-part series exploring the behind-the-scenes elements of self-publishing and ebook creation. Something new for ye olde blog! Enjoy!
Writing a book. I know, it sounds daunting, especially if you’ve never written one before. Traditionally speaking, a book length non-fiction work can run anywhere from 50,000 to 75,000+ words. If you’re used to bashing out articles that cap out around 1,000 words MAX, the thought of stretching that out times 70 can be terrifying, even crippling. I can’t possible do that, you might think. That’s way too much work. Or is it? The golden standard for books in the digital age is shifting just as fast as the publishing industry itself. Tradition can go scratch. It’s a brave new world out there.
