As a coach and publishing consultant, one of the things people ask me the most is: "What next?" They've got a manuscript, they've completed their story, but they can't quite figure out how they go about turning it from a Word document to a physical book.
There is so much information available online to help with this but, actually, it's reached a point where there's almost too much. Google brings up so many answers that the whole thing can be pretty overwhelming, which is why I put together this handy little infographic.
Over the next few weeks, I'll be going into more detail about each of these stages and building up a nice little library of publishing tips for you. But, for now, I hope the demystifies the different options available.
