Steps to publishing your comprehensible reader

We are currently developing a series of online tutorials to help you with the steps towards publishing your comprehensible novel. We have identified 20 (yes, 20!) steps in the process of getting your manuscript from THE END to PUBLISH. 

Why would you want to do all this work when you've already finished writing your story? We'll tell you in this 3m30s video.

Although the steps are shown as a sequence here, in practice, they do not always occur in the order we’ve presented them. Sometimes they circle back, skip forward, or overlap.

We're creating our tutorials in order of interest and need among the writers we've polled. Organized according to four lenses through which you can view your manuscript along the way, some of the tutorials will invite you to think about certain aspects of your writing; others will be practical, hands-on, how-to lessons on editing, comprehensifying, and formatting your comprehensible reader. All of them will guide you towards publishing an accessible and compelling text for engaged and confident readers.
