What is the difference between an amateur and distinguished self-published author?

Rewriting, editing and proofreading are what distinguishes amateurs from professionals. These processes, while inconvenient if you are impatient to release your book and move onto other projects, bring your work and your author brand to life.

When you write the first draft, even though you might pour your heart and soul into it, it is really just for getting the story down. The key to making your story great is revision.

Writers are only as good as their marketing strategy – and excellent grammar, spelling, presentation and clean effective messages should all be a part of your long-term marketing strategy for branding yourself.

Revision and re-writing will ensure you engage readers, connect with other distinguished authors and build a professional reputation.
