Teething Issues First Semi-Professional Kindle ebook

So I had shared earlier that my freelancer for my first semi-professional Amazon Kindle first draft has been completed and submitted to me, but something happened in my personal life that I cannot share now (same reason why I dreamt of that joyful big sea wave), that has delayed my Amazon publishing rate.

Today I finally had some time to go through the draft submission, and I've found quite a lot of errors,

  • small ones are grammatical/sentencing issues
  • larger ones are pertaining to the central value delivery of the Amazon Kindle ebook

And before I hire my copy-editor and proof-reader, I'm going through the draft at least 2-3 times first (gone through once already, starting on my 2nd round) and correcting and proof editing along the way.

The process then goes with:

  1. hiring the copy-editor and proof-reader
  2. hiring graphic designer for the front page design
  3. writing the sales copy
  4. book marketing (probably ongoing)

In spite of that, I am positive of this process and experience, and happy to do this a couple more times to get the hang of this, BEFORE I work on Amazon books that I truly love and passionate about, which goes hand-in-hand with what I'm doing to take stock and reimagine my future, my life message and purpose.
