Manage Your Self-publishing Project is now available from author Hank Quense

Strange Worlds Publishing and author Hank Quense have put together a unique approach to self-publishing. Manage Your Self-publishing Project covers both the publishing process and the initial marketing activities of the project.
Feb. 25, 2013 - PRLog -- Using advanced graphical tools, the book depicts the self-publishing process using flow charts and mind-maps.  A project management approach breaks up the process into a number of discreet time frames starting four months before the launch date.

•The first step in the process is to establish a budget and estimated budget figures are provided to give the author reference points. This should occur four months before the launch date or earlier.

•The second frame, the preliminary work phase, starts ninety days before launch. Both publishing and marketing tasks are depicted in this stage.

•The third phase, implementation, covers more activities that must be completed to keep the project on track

•The fourth phase, launch, includes still more tasks.

•The fifth phase, post-launch, covers the ongoing activities necessary to market and sell the book.

The purpose of the ebook is to demystify the self-publishing process.  The more the self-publisher knows about the process, the less likely she is to buy unnecessary services or sign up with the many scam artists that prey on inexperienced authors.  Ultimately, the ebook can save the self-publishing author money. The ebook is initially available from Smashwords and Kindle

The book is based on Quense's personal experiences with book publishing and marketing. He currently has thirteen books available including this one.  His first two published books were put out by a small indie publishing house.  After that, he self-published several books before starting his own publishing company.

Quense lectures on the Self-publishing process.  Another lecture series is titled Create a Short Story Workshop and directs participants to design a short story during the four sessions.  His Story Design Mini-workshop is aimed at grade school students.

His most recent novel, Falstaff’s Big Gamble was listed as one of the ten best books reviewed in 2012 by prominent UK reviewer Adam-P.  Here is the entire list:

Kirkus Reviews said of the novel: Several memorable Shakespeare characters appear in Quense’s fantasy novel, which takes familiar tragedies and turns them into comedies. Readers expecting something profound from a Shakespeare-inspired story will not find that here, but those who want good entertainment will be more than satisfied. A quirky spin on Shakespeare combined with a funny fantasy/adventure tale.
