I’ve found one of the most surprising things to people new to/outside of the publishing industry is how long is takes for books to get published. So! Here’s a 4-minute super-speedy overview of why the process takes as long as it does.

  • You're kidding right?
    What I heard was, "three years".
    I have to be here another three years of sitting on my ass even afrer I've written my novel?
    Three yeara of phone calls, road trips to who knows where to help the process move along?
    Wonder if I sign my name in blood that'll help move the proxess along and it not be as depressing, or at thr very least as slow.

  • You mentioned the term 'copy edit' so I googled to see what that was and learned about the difference between manuscript critiques, comprehensive edits, line edits, copy edits and proof reading. It would have been nice if you could have touched on that a little more in this video. But otherwise I enjoyed this and was surprised at how much there is to it all.
