I’ve been writing via my blog for a week now. I just passed 1,000 views. I average 150-200 a day. I did not expect this much of a response. Is this normal? What should my benchmarks actually be?
Any advice on how to find beta readers for my 80k words high fantasy novel?
I read a lot of fantasy. A LOT. If you clicked on this entry, you probably read a lot of fantasy too. Most of the fantasy books I’ve read include at least one map. Now, I’m writing a fantasy novel. Should I include a map of the world I’ve built? I’ve sketched out the map and plan to send it to a professional. Have any other authors had trouble formatting their map within the book?
Today, I begin my self-publishing journey. I am nervous. Mainly, I worry about spending a ton of money to get the book edited. I know I need to spend the money to make the book readable, but that doesn’t make the anxiety any better. Any advice on how to vet editors? On a positive note, my cover is ready.
