  2. Award is really giving the writer boost of mind to write more professionally and emotionally. They can choose hybrid publishing that is giving the availability to all kinds of readers in both online and offline.

  3. Plan for the worst case scenario-that the editor will discover a lot of work still needs to be done on the book. Call the editor a few weeks before you finish writing the book so he or she knows the book is coming and can plan accordingly so you don't have to wait weeks for the editor to get to it. https://edupress.edublogs.org/2020/04/23/why-should-you-obey-the-traffic-rules/
