About This Book:

You’ve finished the manuscript. Now what? Do you get an ISBN? Ask your cousin to read it? Hire someone to sketch a cover?
Before you spend a ridiculous amount of time, energy, and money trying to figure out the next steps, you must read this book!
There’s a ton of information about independent e-publishing on the Internet. It can be hard to separate the junk from the gems and even more difficult to know whom to trust. Let’s face it: many people/companies will share just enough “free” information to convince us to sign up for an UNfree service. Not so here!
The 21-Day Publishing Plan is a straightforward, no-nonsense plan for learning the industry, contracting with professionals, preparing your manuscript for publishing, and setting up your book’s promotional plan.
Written by a full-time novelist who has experienced success as a traditionally and independently published writer, this book gives insider tips through the eyes of one who has weighed the options and seen the best of both words. With Michelle’s tried and true plan, you’ll go from first draft to first sale in three weeks or less!

The 21-Day Publishing Plan:From First Draft to First Sale in Three Weeks or Less!  Book Review:

I want to personally to show my gratitude to Michelle Stimpson for sharing her wisdom about publishing your book, by creating an empowering self-publishing guide. She cut down to size the process with a simple step-by-step directions. I always preaching to my fellow authors that we need to support each others. We need to share resources with others to help them with the guidance of the process of publishing their first book. Michelle make sure that she teaches the aspiring authors to avoid the pitfalls of unnecessary paying third-parties for self-publishing services. I believe this book will help someone that have the desire to publish that book especially for those who don’t have any experiences of what to do in the publishing process. This book will inspire and add value to someone that is well written with an easy follow on directions. She recommend the readers with professional book editors and people who design book covers rather it is in an Ebook format or printed copy books.

The 21-Day Publishing Plan is a great publishing bible for authors rather if they decide to choose the route of Self Publishing or Traditional publishing. Michelle provided the 3 week plan base on her own experiences to help aspiring authors to be successful in their publishing journey. These great information does comes into play when that book finally already written and ready for the next phase in the publishing journey. Her insights into the process of editing, choosing an editor and the price ranges with recommendations provided on the right kind of editors. You will discover a writing blog from the recommendation of Michelle Stimpson  to read it for yourself until you can’t read anymore. She offer her advice to the readers about online bookselling platforms like Smashwords, Amazon-KDP(Kindle Direct Publishing), and Barnes and Noble(NookPress). She also put the main focus on book covers with credible graphic designers, the understanding for creating your own book covers and the blueprint for purchasing pre-made covers plus take in the sights at the input of an editor. She recommend into details about tweaking your book cover, formatting that book and information she uses in her own books, uploading that book, the description of the book, author bio, planning the scheduling promotions online, places to post your book (paid and free sites), and promotion tips. I definitely recommend this book for aspiring and new authors. Also I recommend this book for Authors (like myself) who already successfully published their book. Michelle’s book will give you a great guidance step by step successfully publishing your manuscript. Michelle didn’t have to share her wisdom in successfully publishing your book, but she was willing to do that because she wanted to help others to succeed in the process of publishing their book. She really created a well written and great resources of publishing that book. This book really help me personally to improve my craft in the process of publishing a better book.

I also recommend you to read Rochelle Carter’s Book “The Seven Step Guide To Authorpreneurship – Plan, Write, Publish.”
