An Independent Author’s Checklist: What You Need to Have Ready for Ghostwriters, Editors, and Graphic Designers (Free Gifts for Indie Authors Book 1)

As an independent author (a.k.a. "indie author"), you are the project manager of your own book's production from start to finish, from conception straight through to publication. This may include hiring a freelance ghostwriter (if you choose not to write your book yourself), an experienced editor, and even a professional graphic designer for best results. It all depends on the type of book an indie author wishes to produce.

For example, there are different components involved with designing a paperback book than an ebook of any kind; and there are even more components to consider if that indie author wishes to publish and print a hardcover book. An Independent Author's Checklist includes an important list of questions indie authors will want to answer for a graphic designer, ahead of time, to ensure the book is completed properly and professionally the first time around. This type of preparation can save time and money for both project stakeholders because it can prevent complete do-overs in cases where the designer was unclear about the indie author's original vision.

Communication is so important throughout this process--not only with your graphic designer. An indie author will also want to have certain things prepared ahead of time, in certain ways, for both the ghostwriter (if applicable) and the editor. As such, it's often helpful to have a checklist at your disposal that makes this entire process run as smoothly as possible--particularly for the indie authors who are new to the whole publishing business. That's why I created An Independent Author's Checklist and decided to publish it online for indie authors everywhere. I want you all to have as much helpful information as possible at your fingertips, so you all have a positive publishing experience coupled with the best possible chances of success. That is my wish for you.

An Independent Author's Checklist includes helpful information for indie authors regarding effectively communicating your book's vision to a ghostwriter. Although some indie authors are both qualified and have the time to write their own books, you might choose to hire someone else to help you create that compelling narrative. Both are acceptable ways to produce a book. That said, when hiring a ghostwriter to help pen your book, it is important for indie authors to remember that ghostwriting is an ongoing, collaborative process (much like the entire publishing process). To make things run smoother, you should be prepared ahead of time.

An Independent Author's Checklist also includes important guidance for indie authors regarding how to submit one's manuscript to an editor so that it contains all the information you want edited. For example, some indie authors will only have the main body of their book interiors professionally edited. In that case, often any front matter, back matter, and back cover copy that is added after the fact is riddled with all kinds of spelling errors and typos, diminishing the professional quality of the book. But for indie authors like you who follow the guidelines in this checklist, you'll avoid these issues and end up with the best possible result.

A Simple Guide To Sketchnoting: How To Use Visual Thinking in Daily Life to Improve Communication & Problem Solving

Sketchnoting and visual thinking are techniques to represent ideas graphically. However you choose to represent these ideas - by mind maps, sketches, webs, or concepts - there is plenty of evidence that visual thinking methods assist memory, the organisation of ideas, and general planning.

In the process of sketchnoting, people use a variety of visual techniques (clouds, connectors, text, icons) to visually synthesize and summarize the subject being discussed.

This guide is broken down into several sections. In section one we look at some of the benefits of visual thinking which apply to organisations and individuals. Section two looks at the specific techniques that are available in the Sketchnoter's Toolkit. Section three reviews a few advanced techniques for sketchnoting, which provide avenues to continue your path toward mastery.

This is not a long book. It is designed for the busy leader / facilitator seeking a rapid overview of methods and principles from a someone who has developed and used these skill over the last five years.

Show Your Work!: 10 Ways to Share Your Creativity and Get Discovered

In his New York Times bestseller Steal Like an Artist, Austin Kleon showed readers how to unlock their creativity by "stealing" from the community of other movers and shakers. Now, in an even more forward-thinking and necessary book, he shows how to take that critical next step on a creative journey--getting known.

Show Your Work! is about why generosity trumps genius. It's about getting findable, about using the network instead of wasting time "networking." It's not self-promotion, it's self-discovery--let others into your process, then let them steal from you. Filled with illustrations, quotes, stories, and examples, Show Your Work! offers ten transformative rules for being open, generous, brave, productive.

In chapters such as You Don't Have to Be a Genius; Share Something Small Every Day; and Stick Around, Kleon creates a user's manual for embracing the communal nature of creativity-- what he calls the "ecology of talent." From broader life lessons about work (you can't find your voice if you don't use it) to the etiquette of sharing--and the dangers of oversharing--to the practicalities of Internet life (build a good domain name; give credit when credit is due), it's an inspiring manifesto for succeeding as any kind of artist or entrepreneur in the digital age.

The Sketchnote Workbook: Advanced techniques for taking visual notes you can use anywhere

The Sketchnote Workbook, the follow-up to Mike Rohde's popular The Sketchnote Handbook, shows you how to take the basic sketchnoting skills you learned in the Handbook and use them in new and fun ways. You think you have fun taking sketchnotes in meetings? Try using them to record your travels. Or start a food journal. Or break out those visual notetaking skills in your next brainstorming session--whether you're at work or school, or just trying to figure out how to organize the paper that's due next week.



The Sketchnote Workbook comes with a 2+ hour companion video that brings the ideas you read about in the book to life. Mike takes you on the road with him to various locations to show you first-hand how to use sketchnotes to generate ideas, document processes, map out projects, learn new languages, create visual to-do lists, and capture the everyday experiences that mean the most to you--whether it's a trip, a meal, or an episode of your favorite TV show.



Don't worry. You don't need to know how to draw to use the book or the video. Mike gives you a quick recap of how to use five simple shapes and basic lettering techniques to create visual notes that you'll want to share with your friends. For those of you who have already mastered the basics in The Sketchnote Handbook, Mike includes advanced drawing and lettering techniques and offers pages within the book and downloadable worksheets that you can use to practice your new skills.



This video is 2 hours and 41 minutes long.
