“Good Sex, Great Prayers”: A Journey in Publication

GSGP-cover-pic.jpgTwenty-two months ago, LitReactor published the first in a seven-part series of columns regarding the process of making Good Sex, Great Prayers — from conception, to the writing process, and most recently, the release party and reviews. It’s a good read for any writer working on their own novel, or, if you’re just curious to see how this fun nightmare known as publishing actually works. Here they are:

Good Sex, Great Prayers: A Journey in Publication (Part 1: Origins): conception of the idea, hooking up with the publisher, signing the contract.

Good Sex, Great Prayers: A Journey in Publication (Part 2: Writing the Novel): the writing process, time-management, how to outline, decompression.

Good Sex, Great Prayers: A Journey in Publication (Part 3: Art & Stuff): tramp stamp covers, designing GSGP, taking author photos, image rights/legal.

Good Sex, Great Prayers: A Journey in Publication (Part 4: Spinning Plates): extensions, promotion vs. pre-promotion, misc. publications.

Good Sex, Great Prayers: A Journey in Publication (Part 5: Editing and Beta Reading): first draft, celebrate the win, beta readers, content edit and editing tips.

Good Sex, Great Prayers: A Journey in Publication (Part 6: Pre-order and Print Copies): more editing feedback, GSGP goes to pre-order, initial blurbs and accolades, print and signed editions.

Good Sex, Great Prayers: A Journey in Publication (Part 7: Release Party, Reviews, and a Fond Farewell): flashback to 2009, release party, reviews and more blurbs, a fond farewell.
