When you are trying to lose weight, you are often told to motivate yourself by buying an outfit, such as a swimsuit, that you hope to fit into after reaching your goal. The idea is that you will be motivated to eat well and work out because you really want to use that swimsuit hanging in your bedroom. The same is true for self publishing a book.
Rather than waiting to buy your self publishing package when your manuscript is 100% complete, purchase it now. Knowing that the package is sitting there waiting for you to use will encourage you to continue working on your project. It will also make you feel more confident knowing that you have a publishing consultant ready to help you with the process; all you have to do is finish the manuscript.
Purchasing your self publishing package is also motivating because it allows you to begin seeing yourself as a real author. You can begin thinking about editing and design and marketing. You don’t have to wait until the manuscript is finished to say you are a self published author, instead you will be a self publishing author who is in the process of finalizing his or her book.
I’d love to know, when do you plan to purchase your self publishing package?
