Mini-Quiz: Running a Publishing Business

by Ron Kurtus (revised 12 July 2011)

Take this Mini-Quiz to check your understanding of the lesson material.

1. What is wrong with doing all the publishing tasks yourself?

Nothing is wrong with it, because it shows you are talented

It is against the rules of the publishing association

You often lack the time and skills to do many of the required tasks

2. What is an important part of getting your book ready for printing?

Getting a book proposal

Contacting book stores to see their interest

Having the material checked over and edited

3. Why do you typically start marketing before the book is published?

You need to lay the ground-work for the release of the book

Because it is the easiest task and takes the least time

It is a tradition from the days of the old printing presses

If you got all three correct, you are on your way to becoming a Champion in Self-Publishing. If you had problems, you had better look over the material again.

Be a professional
