Last week I had the chance to sit down with Linda Horowitz, Professional Author’s Assistant. We spoke about what she does to support authors, and some important things authors should think about.
Here are three key points I took away:
1. If you’re aiming to publish your book in print format, the book should be at least 25,000 words long (approximately 100 pages, if you’re working with a 12-point font and about 250 words-per-page).
2. If you’re using quotes in your book, it is your responsibility as the author to make sure you have permission to publish them. Linda has a system for contacting and following up with the appropriate people and/or organizations.
3. There are a lot of jobs that need to be done in publishing your book – whether you’re preparing to submit it to a traditional publisher or whether you plan to self-publish. Linda suggests you focus on writing and let her take care of the rest!
