Our lives are busier than ever, and it’s so easy to get lost in the hustle and bustle of every day life and lose motivation for creative projects. You can only say “I’ll start tomorrow” so many times! If you really want to write a book, NOW is the best time to start.
So why is now a good time to write your book?
After such a long time facing uncertain global health issues, the world is finally waking up and opening up again. Businesses are no longer floundering; offices are opening up their doors. As life returns to normal, all the best opportunities are starting to appear again.
If you want to publish your book, writing and finishing it now is the best option, because even though you might type “The End,” your work is just beginning. Pursuing publication can be a time-consuming, stressful, and complicated process. Whether you pursue traditional publication and query literary agencies like Langtons International, decide to self publish, or explore alternative options like hybrid publishing, such as Central Park South Publishing, your book will take weeks to appear in the bookstores.
As businesses, publishing houses have to think about the marketing and economic factors of their books. Would this book be better for this season? What major holidays happen in these months and this affect the sales of this book.
As far away as it seems now, we are already halfway to Christmas 2021. Finishing your book now means that you can get your book on the bookshelves and on Amazon, ready for the buying rush for gifts. Of course, there are varying time frames: commercial publishers have long lead times, and they would publish your book by Christmas 2022, while hybrid publishers such as Central Park South Publishing will be able to publish your book in time for this Christmas market, the 2021 Christmas market.
Christmas is for many bookstores their highest-selling season. The six weeks before and during the holiday especially is the time to take advantage of this mad rush for gifts, and this is why it is a good time to write your book now!
