Getting the first draft done means (of course) that the book is not ready for prime time just yet. After the first draft is finished, I will then still need to:
- Reformat the Microsoft Word document to whatever format Amazon handles
- Edit it some more
- Somehow figure out a cover image for the damn thing (!)
- Edit is some more
- Go through a final internal argument where I decide whether to go for "mere" ebook publishing or try to send the damn thing to a traditional publisher (and have it ignored for ten years)
- Market it when it's published in whatever format it comes out as.
Well, now I know what I'll have nightmares about tonight.
