Writer's Summit Tip #10:
Hand your first proof to someone who is a skilled editor and allow them to 'clean' up your book BEFORE you share your book with friends and family.
Remember, your first proof is not ready for publication! It is like a newborn baby with the gunk still on it. If you do you share your book prematurely with non-professionals, you open yourself up to unnecessary criticism and (unintentional) dream stealing.
Your confidence is what will drive the book's initial sales and any early words of criticism can ring in your ears for a long time. Wait until you are confident in your project and solid in your dream - BEFORE you share it with others, especially those closest to you whose opinions you value highly!
Writer's Summit Tip #8:
Add your bar code, ISBN and list price visibly to the back of your book. If you are pitching that book to brick and mortar bookstores, they will check off a checklist that includes these items BEFORE they even open your book.
The next item on the checklist will be: Do you have an LCCN (Library of Congress Catalog Number) - if you do great, if not, click through to this page on copyrights and information regarding copyrights.
