Is Your Self Published Book Ready for Launch?

Updated: Jan 9

It is natural to be a little anxious before your self published book goes live. Is it ready? Have you missed anything critical? I get these questions from authors all the time as they get ready to launch their self published books.

While this checklist we have put together won't guarantee success, it can help you make sure nothing falls through the cracks during that critical last week of publishing before the book launches.

With this checklist, we make an assumption that you have created a high-quality book and worked with a team of professionals to make it happen. Regardless of that, there are so many things to do when you upload your book onto Amazon and/or Ingram Spark and so I put this checklist together for myself.

When clients tell me that their book isn't selling and ask me to check their listing out, this is also the checklist I go through to assess whether any adjustments are necessary.

Email me at and let me know if this is helpful for you. Are there other things you would add to the list? We want to hear from you!
