I hope you enjoyed the truly life-changing message I sent you last
Well, that’s not quite true. Actually, you didn’t get a weekend edition
email from me last Saturday because… Well, the truth is that I got too
busy and forgot to write it. (I tried to blame my missing message on the
BookBaby marketing department. That didn’t go so well.) Editor’s note: No, Steven,
it didn’t go so well! ☺
Which makes for an appropriate introduction to today’s message: Finding
the time to write. Are there some tips and techniques that can help us
all to find quality writing time in an already jam-packed daily schedule?
Author and blogger Norm Schriever contributed a post about how he
organizes and manages his writing time. He shares a little about his
writing ritual, which involves “rising way too early, freebasing coffee,
and playing great tunes on the stereo.” Whatever works! Have a look here.

Here’s a great review that was posted on Trustpilot earlier this month:
“I am completely
satisfied with my experience at BookBaby. The finished product is a book
that looks and feels great. The cover design was fantastic and the
formatting makes for a nice looking book. In fact, the bookstore at my
church has agreed to carry the book—the manager did not believe that it
is a self-published book. She’s never seen one that looked this good!”
Lynn made a wise decision to invest in design and formatting. And I’m
glad she trusted my team at BookBaby to create a professional-looking
book. Some authors try to take on these tasks themselves, but frankly,
that’s almost always a huge mistake. Savvy authors know that these are
tasks best left to the professionals. BookBaby authors who order our
creative services quickly realize the value in working with our
experienced team of designers and editors.
Recently I learned that Amazon’s CreateSpace division had decided to end
its creative services for authors. I wrote something about it on the
BookBaby blog that you can find right here.
BookBaby is committed to offering these important services to
self-published authors. Our team of professional editors and designers is
on call to help you produce the best book possible. It’s an investment
that always pays great dividends!
