What is F.A.T.E, you ask? It’s our first collaboration and the first of its kind, as far as we know.
F.A.T.E: From Authors to Entrepreneurs encompasses excitement, exhilaration, doubt, fear–all the rollercoaster human emotions mangled together during the process of not only launching a debut novel, but a new publishing company at the same time. It ain’t all fun and games for sanity. Definitely no picnic, either.
Learn about Stephanie cussing me out when I questioned the edits of one particular sentence; Omar’s concerns of his first book marketing plan; my perpetual battle against the Sandman, re-writing and re-writing and more freakin’ re-writing into the wee hours under a strict deadline; and the three of us struggling and juggling our managing partner roles as we tried to figure out the intricacies of a publishing company, like a new website, social media, legal matters (partnership or LLC?), printer selection, distribution, ISBNs, edits, typesetting, bookkeeping, taxes, seed money, travel costs, networking, e-books…
My head hurts already, but yes, the list goes on. This is not your typical “how-to” book; it’s more of a behind-the-scenes reality show from the moment we conceived the idea of a publishing company to the realization of a dream at an Atlanta book conference, written from the unique perspectives of the author (me); editor (Stephanie); and marketing expert (Omar). Like our own collaborative diary.
