Bringing high-quality books to market on a predictable timetable requires planning. A detailed production calendar can help you account for all the necessary steps, from manuscript to market. This workshop will help you accurately plan for all the elements that will affect your books’ production schedule (such as editing, indexing, and design). Creating a production calendar that can grow with your publishing catalog will save you time and aggravation because you won’t need to start from scratch with each new title. And when you can see at a glance where a project stands on your calendar, you will be able to manage more projects simultaneously with less stress.
