Creating Your First Novel

Hank Quense knows that a lot of effort, expended over a lengthy period of time, goes into creating a novel, and having published more than 30 books, he should know.

Quense’s latest release, Creating Your First Novel, was written to provide aspiring authors with the information they need to understand the entire scope of creating a new book. Divided into five phases, Creating Your Novel covers Planning, Writing, Publishing, Marketing and Managing the Business — the last of which Quense noted usually comes as quite a surprise.

Explaining in detail the tasks, options and considerations involved each step of the way in his five-phase process, for Quense, the ultimate goal of his book is eliminating surprises for up-and-coming authors.

Many authors, when creating their first novel, don’t appreciate or understand exactly what they are getting into: a multi-phase, long-term project. And writing it is only the first step.

After all this activity, many authors are shocked to discover they now own a business. This sudden promotion to CEO of a business to market and sell the book can be upsetting.

I’ve written over 30 books, most of them self-published. I’ve stumbled through all of the phases a few times before I mastered the process. Recently, I decided to develop a thorough explanation of all the phases in a comprehensive way that would save new authors from experiencing the frustration of trying to figure out each phase as it unfolds.
