About the 60-Day Publish Cycle

60-Day Publish: October & November

Every October and November, for sixty days, discussion on the website focuses on how to publish that year’s 85,000 words. Whether traditional, hybrid, indie, or micro, the path toward publishing is unique to every writer and every piece of writing.

The 85K Writing Challenge encourages writers to pursue publishing when the time is right for them, which may or may not be during the months the topic of publishing is discussed.

Whether querying agents or hiring book cover designers and placing your book on sale, October and November are dedicated to publishing efforts, knowing the actual outcome of desired results may take much longer the 60-Day Publish cycle.

Inspired by prosperity and growth, the 60-Day Publish cycle is color-coded green.
