Are You Ready To Invest?
The self-publishing journey is finally complete. There is now a book about the journey of me making $12,000 in one day in the Stock Market.
I learned a ton about writing when I compiled Are You Ready To Invest? I have grown very accustomed to blog writing, which I find almost relaxing. You write, edit, do your SEO, then post.
I assumed a book would be the same way… right? Was I ever wrong?
There are so many things in the process that I never thought about, but I did get through.
Below I will list a few of the obstacles I had to overcome with my book, Are You Ready To Invest?
A Copyright Page?
You know those pages… at the front…. that you never read. You HAVE to have one of those. Since Are You Ready To Invest? is a book about investing, that page also required disclaimers. So the first page of the book is even more jumbled than most.
A Cover Page?
I am writing an ebook… surely I won’t need a cover right? I was wrong. You have to have one, and everyone recommends a professional to do your cover. Personally, with my skills in Photoshop, I thought, I don’t need one. If you aren’t skilled in this aspect, I would recommend you get a professional… or at the very least me. (Email me firstname.lastname@example.org)
Although I did come up with some horrendous works of art to start with, the final draft of the cover (featured image of this page) was actually pretty good. (Also thanks to all of the people that helped with vetoing other cover options, to help me land on this one.
Ok, so this isn’t something that you HAVE to have, but mine was pleasant to work with. However being a blog artist, I am not used to someone else giving me their opinion before I post something. We also had issues in the beginning because I don’t write like I talk. (I am from the south… so sue me)
One goal that we wanted was to make it sound like it was only one person writing the book. Which I think we did a good job on. You can be the deciding factor when you download the book here.
Finishing the Book
This is a no-brainer on your list of have-to’s but once we started writing we kept coming up with ideas for other books. Books that you might expect later down the road are:
- More investing advice
- How to survive in sales
- A more in-depth study of how I lost 50 lbs.
- A fiction series (yes! a fiction series)
Vetoed Cover for Are You Ready To Invest?
First I want to give a big thanks to everyone that purchases the book. I would also like to thank everyone that vetoed the cover first (and second) cover.
