Here are some mistakes which you can easily avoid: Poor writing Whenever we write, it is natural for us to miss a punctuation, spelling and make other typographical mistakes. But to allow these mistakes to appear on our book, will make us appear very unprofessional. Just imagine readers reading the blurb page and finding mistakes from it which can be avoided if you only have gotten somebody review it for you before printing and distribution. Another thing that you would have to consider is the flow of organization and thought.  If your book is disorganized then it can be difficult from some to read and understand.  You would have to make sure that you have a good and detailed outline to help you with the writing. If you are having difficulties writing and think that you need somebody to help you out, then you can get a co-writer or an editor to check your work.

Continue… If you are writing a story or novel, remember that continuity is important. There are some writers that would miss that out, for example if they have hazel eyes, then make sure that their eyes stay the same color throughout the story unless it is significant for the story to change it. Avoid giving incorrect information and details.  Also avoid putting wrong captions in pictures and graphs, if ever you will use some.

Inadequate book editing, formatting, and layout Continue… You would have to invest on the formatting of the book.  Book sales can be affected by a bad cover or bad title.  You may need to get a book designer to do your book layout and your cover. Booksellers recognize that jackets and covers are very important in clinching sales.  So do not sacrifice in getting a professional to do the cover design. Aside from the cover, another thing that could affect book sales would be the format of its contents.  There are different formats, you can check books from your shelf or you can go to the library to look at some. Things that you need to take note of would be the page distribution among the title pages , copyright pages , dedication pages and the start of the first chapter.

Continue… Lack of promotion, marketing and distribution plan Okay, you have already produced a good book.  It is already clean from mistakes, wrong spelling and typographical errors.  You would have to come up with a good marketing plan.  It is important not to miss this out. Some self-published authors have overlooked this thinking that having a good book on their hands would be good enough.  But how will a book sell if readers do not even know it even exist? You would have to make sure that you have a well-planned advertising , marketing and launching plan .  If you think you cannot pull it off, then do not hesitate to get an experienced person to help you out.

Continue… Aside from marketing, some self-published authors also tend to make mistakes in distribution. Make sure that your target audience get to have a chance to buy your book.  Some authors would also overlook online distribution. There are cost-efficient online distribution channels where you can have your book available.  Internet is becoming a convenient place for people to buy stuff that they want and need.
