Writing an E-book – Thinking ahead

Home / Blog / Writing an E-book – Thinking ahead

Well, as many of you know, I’ve really been focusing a lot of time on writing an this e-book for SAP Service Management.  I was extremely excited, because I thought I was nearly done, ready to start publishing and be able to refer to myself as the “the guy who wrote the book on SAP SM”.  Well, it seems I didn’t do my homework very well.  Now, I did finish all the content for my book, and I even gave it a first round of editing, proofreading, and found a couple sections that I missed.  But, where I dropped the ball was some of the basic things needed to publish a book.

1. A Title ( you may have seen my previous post asking for feedback).

2. A cover – as I found out as soon as I started looking to publishing on Amazon, iBooks, etc. is that you need a cover.  It sounds to simple…  but since I’m the furthest thing from artistically gifted, means I need help with this.  Unfortunately, my favorite graphic artist is booked solid.  So now I have no choice but to delay my publishing.

Now, this isn’t the end of the world, but after spending time off and on over the past year…  I was ready to release this baby.  And now I find out I’m on hold, because I didn’t do my due diligence on what was required in order to publish an e-book.

Live and learn, and as always, I hope you learn from my mistakes and get those pieces started early.

Thanks for reading,
