With NaNoWriMo complete, we anticipate a burst in people eager to take the next step in publishing their books. We don’t blame you! You’ve put all this work into the manuscript, and now you want to share it with the world. It’s also a popular New Year’s Resolution to be a published author by the end of the year, and we’re excited to help you along that journey.
Due to many people in exactly that position, we anticipate a small delay in processing your requests. Rest assured, we’re working as fast as we can and we’ll address them all in the order they were received.
Meanwhile, we encourage you to take the month of December to self-edit your NaNo project. Go to a Christmas concert in the first week of the month, then buckle down and reread the book. Discover places to embellish thoughts that become important later, and trim scenes that turned out to be less interesting than you’d originally hoped. Find favorite moments and copy them to a separate document to use for promotional ideas.
