Are you concerned about how you’re going to pay for your booklet’s production? If you haven’t written your booklet yet, you’re putting the cart before the horse.
It doesn’t cost you anything to come up with a great idea for a booklet. In fact, if you’re reading this you probably already have a great idea. Think of that idea as gold which needs to be mined. The gold is there, but there is a process for obtaining it.
The first part of that process is writing your booklet. Like your idea, writing won’t cost you a cent. It won’t even cost you very much in time because you are not writing a full length book. You can have your booklet manuscript finished in as little as 24 hours if you really want to and put your mind to it. Or, maybe you’ll do it in three days like I did with my last title. Or maybe you’ll spend two weeks on it. But, it won’t take you very long.
Once the manuscript is finished, you’ll begin to see the gold shining in the mine. You’ll be excited to get your manuscript produced and trust me, you’ll be able to do it.
While I don’t recommend you let your manuscript sit for a long period of time, waiting a couple of weeks or a month to move forward to the next step in the process won’t hurt. If you need a little time to come up with funds for production that’s ok. Once you start production, it will happen in steps anyway, giving you time in between each step to come up with the money you need for the next step until production is completed.
Worrying about how you will come up with the money won’t get your booklet done. Remember, you’re not publishing a full length book, which would cost you thousands of dollars to produce. You’re publishing a booklet, which will slash your publishing costs to a mere pittance.
Don’t let worry stop you dead in your tracks. Move ahead with your great idea and write that manuscript! Mine that gold!
To your riches!
