EP 338 | Publish with Purpose with Courtney Warren
August 22, 2023
If you’ve ever dreamed of getting a design book published and wondered what exactly is involved, then this is your episode. Dallas designer, Courtney Warren wrote her first book and shared some of the challenges (it’s a real drain on your time) and the rewards of getting to print.
In this episode we learn:
- don’t underestimate the amount of time it will take to write the book and then work with the publisher to promote the book
- having an office manager who can run the business when you are pulled away for writing or editing, is a good idea
- when your publisher needs something, you’ll need to drop everything in order to meet the timelines
- publishing is not a free ride toward promotion, you’ll need to do most of the leg work
You will not see an immediate return on the media exposure you have today. It may take 6 months or longer for the phone to ring but keep going and the accumulated effort of media exposure will pay off.
