Summer is coming to an end and the holidays and a new year are right around the corner. If you’ve been considering self-publishing, August is the perfect time to take the leap! Here are the top five reasons why.
1. Have Your Book by Christmas
Everyone should treat themselves to a great Christmas gift, and what could be a better gift than seeing your book in print? If you self-publish now, your book could be ready by Christmas. (Books also make great Christmas gifts for family members and friends.)
2. Celebrate Book Lovers Day
Book Lovers Day was August 9th. While the holiday is already over, you can still celebrate by finally becoming a self-published author. And by this time next year, you can celebrate the day by promoting your own self-published book!
3. Beach Time is Ending
As summer comes to an end, you will be bombarded with holiday to-do lists. Take advantage of the final, relaxing days of summer and finish your manuscript before the busy holiday season begins. Proofreading your manuscript on the beach is a perfect way to end the summer.
4. Back to School Time
If your book is geared towards an educational market, now is the perfect time to self-publish your book. With school back in session, teachers, students, and parents will all be purchasing books for the new school year. You may want to contact schools to find out their requirements for using your book so you can plan accordingly.
I’d love to know, why do you plan to self-publish in August?
