Netgalley Review: The Author’s Checklist

Adobe Photoshop PDF

Hello friends,

The Author’s Checklist is a nonfiction book that I honestly have no clue of which how to review. Y’all know that I rarely read non-fiction. Was this useful, as a guide for new beginners? Yes. I learned that I’ve been slacking in terms of editing my books and perhaps that is why no one is accepting my work, because of poor editing even if the story has good quality, if it’s that badly edited (or not edited at all) then it’s not going to get published no matter how hard I try.

I learned also that there’s a lot more work to be had in terms of publishing novels. I thought it was hard before-I hadn’t realized that there was even more tasks to be accomplished through editors, translators (if it got that far or popular as a book), copy editing, contracts, and a lot more paperwork than I realized. It’s a bit intimidating, actually, but I’ve started making plans in terms of how to get through the next stages of getting published.

This book was a strange read for me, yet I did like it. It was easy enough to follow along, even if it was slightly intimidating and uncertain at times in my finishing it. I’m overall giving this book a solid three out of five stars. And a warning to new authors that aren’t published everywhere-there’s always more work in writing involved than you think.

Until next time,
Pass Me That Book

I am a book blogger, where I talk about my favorite reads, new books I've found, or anything related to reading. I am currently accepting ARCs in the genres: Science Fiction, YA, Fantasy, Romance, Historical, and Mystery. I am open for anything, though religious based books are generally not something that I would read, unless a friend/someone I know asks me to. Feel free to email me for questions!
