Becoming an independent author is almost like being in a circus act: between having to take care of the writing, design, distribution, and marketing of a single book, you have to keep a lot of plates spinning (or a lot of balls in the air). If you forget just one part of any of these crucial elements, you run a greater risk of being disappointed by your book launch.

For the past three years, Reedsy has worked with authors to create thousands of books — and in that time, we've learned a lot about what it takes to launch a book successfully. The good news is that the steps you need to take are easily replicated, no matter what sort of book you're writing.

To help make sure that your book launch goes off without a hitch, we've compiled and condensed everything we know about this topic into a single infographic self-publishing checklist. Enjoy!
