Usually in book writing, one gets back what they have invested in the work. It starts from the top cover as this creates the first impression of the book and therefore, the cover should be done and printed properly.

The first draft can appear to be poor but it is a step that will help one realize and notice the errors made. One can then relax and do their own activities and come back when they are fresh. The first draft helps minimize errors in the second and third draft. The editor can now view a copy of the book. At this time, one need to be having a cover for their book in which if they don’t have, they can buy. At this given point an individual knows how to write a book and they can post it for other people to read.
