Path to Publication: Grand Finale!

I have done it!  

On June 27th, I took my first official step towards publication and exactly 37 days later. I am a published author!!!

During this time I learned about FB pages while setting up my author page.  I also learned about website building and widgets and plugins. I have created a newsletter and am still figuring out the service for distribution. I have also filed my home business with federal and state government and received my permit for taxes. I have researched cover designs and artist as well as editors both the human kind and digital editing services.

Also during those same 37 days, I have had surgery which I stayed in the hospital overnight and for several weeks my mobility and lucidity (due to pain meds) were limited.  Though I do not have an 8-5 job, my elementary age children were home from school for the summer so we have had fun activities that would keep us from home for large chunks of time.  When I wasn’t with my family, I had meetings involving the PTA which I am President of.  As I was approaching the finish line, our internet went out for three days.

This has been a journey unlike any other I have ever been on.  I have learned so much and I look forward to doing this again when my next book releases in November. I can see how this will get easier and easier with each release.

Those of you who liked and began following my blog, I thank you.  For those of you who have given me your opinions on FB, I thank you.  For my family who has supported me so much, I love you and I thank you.

If any of you are starting your own journey to publication, please let me help.  I would be honored to be your guide and offer advice to make you a success!

As always with love,

JJ Liniger

  1. JJ,

    I have been reading your nearly daily articles and gleaning them for all kinds of useful tips since day 5 (I think). I really appreciate all the effort that you have put into your novel and your willingness to share it with hopefuls like myself.

    I assume this is your last article as you have reached the end of this goal. I admire you and wish you nothing but the very best moving forward.



  2. Thank you so much for your comment and letting me know that you have appreciated the blog. I will have other series at some point and I plan to organize this one a little better at some point. Please let me know what you will be publishing and if we can work together on something.
    Thanks and God Bless!
    JJ Liniger
