One of the Best Indie Publishing Strategies for 2019

A strategy suggested by Alex was selected as one of the “Best Indie Publishing Strategies for 2019” by the International Book Publishers Association. Alex proposed the following:

To more carefully edit and proofread, as boring and tedious as such efforts are: read your finished writing out loud. Forces you to read every single word and avoid the unconscious skimming and glossing over what is all too familiar. This makes it easier to spot typos and grammatical errors and further assists to edit your writing, as you get a reader’s feel for the flow of your writing. Think about how negative you feel when you encounter typos or obvious grammatical errors in a published work. Remember how terrible you feel to find the same in your writing.

Alex launched the publication of Occupational Hazard with a reading at the New York City office of Enterprise Community Partners, Inc., where he served as vice president and deputy general counsel at the time of his retirement at the end of 2015.

The reading was attended by some 50 former Enterprise colleagues and others, and a rousing discussion of the book ensued and was enjoyed by all.
