I was contacted about 2 months ago with an offer to submit a book proposal. I have learned not to accept everything at face value so I did some digging to see if it was a real offer. It was (or is).
My first thought was YES! I accept! My second thought was there is NO way that I can do this on my own and so I start to put out feelers with some of my colleagues. Were they interested in conducting the same type of research that I was? Are they known experts in book publishing or in the research field? Could they help me with the most important question - what next???
I am happy to say that I have secured the best possible partner. She is interested in the same things that I am. She is an expert as she has already published two books. She can help me answer what next as (again) she has already published two books.
I thought that I would start documenting the process in this blog in
hopes of helping others through the journey. I have no idea at the
moment if this will be successful or not, but perhaps there is also
something to be learned if is not successful. Watch for the hashtag #bookpublishing.
