Not this kind:
I did used to love that song though. No, I mean this kind of countdown:
Last week, I spoke to the ever helpful and awesome Caroline Batten and put together a publishing calendar. It highlights everything I need to do between now and my release date and includes:
- Send Caroline my draft. Because I’d never publish anything without her having gone through it first!
- Send to my structural editor in under a couple of weeks time
- Send to my copy editor
- Get started on a cover with my cover designer
And that’s just for starters. It kind of rammed it all home just how much I’ve got to do and that means I’ll be living, breathing, eating and sleeping this book. No parties (ok, maybe one), no TV, no nothing.
It’s a good thing I perform well under pressure!
