Five things I wish I would have known about publishing
1. Covers make or break a book. If you don’t like the cover, say something as early on as possible. You as an author, should have some type of say in what is on the cover of your novel.
2. Everything takes longer in the publishing world. Communication is slow. Publishing a book is slow.  Getting a contract is slow. (I turned down an offer in 2013 because the publishing company was too slow to give me the final contract. I had another offer on the table and they had already provided me with a contract.)
3. Plan to give away a lot of eBooks; for book bloggers, giveaways, promotions. This works especially well for the first book in a series.
4. Get in writing what your publisher does in terms of marketing your novel. Have it spelled out in the contract.
5. Understand the wording in your contract and it’s best to consult a lawyer prior to signing any legal documents.

Jasper walked over to Ophelia. “You didn't think you'd still be Princess Ophelia, did you? Every neighboring kingdom knows who you are. The minute they saw you’re alive, it would change everything.”

“I'm confused.” Ophelia hoped someone would elaborate.

“Your soul stays intact, but the body you'll be in will be different.” Wynter reached for Ophelia's hand, resting it over his chest. “Do you feel that?” He had kind eyes and a warm smile.

Ophelia nodded. He had a steady heartbeat. “But you're dead?”

“We're undead, technically, but the human body can't sustain a soul without a working heart, lungs, you get the idea. We're not zombies. We're real people. We just have the ability to reap a person's soul when they die, so they can move on.”
