How Many Hats Can You Wear at One Time? Hire a Freelance Team!
**This is an older episode. Some information may have changed
During this series on Self Publishing, we have mentioned several times that you will need help to get your book out. It would be a challenge to take care of all the pieces of the publishing on your own. You would have to be an author, a designer, an editor, a marketer and more. While we may have some skills that could be applied to each of these jobs it is best to hire someone who is more knowledgeable than yourself. There are several things that you need to consider as you put together your freelance team and Charlotte Pierce and I discuss some of them.
Charlotte Pierce views her Pierce Press authors as collaborators and partners. Her company, Pierce Press publishes print and electronic books under three imprints: DayTripper Books (travel & family), GiggleQuick Books (children’s), and Peeragogy Books (alternative education). Pierce Press also performs publishing coaching, marketing, and video production services for nonprofits, small businesses, and individuals. Charlotte is co-president of Independent Book Publishers of New England (IPNE). Charlotte hosts Indie Office Hours, a live-streaming show about the publishing process, and Face the Book TV, which focuses on books, authors, and the writing process.
Steven Key makes some great points on how you can maximize your freelance team.
