New Office Policies March 19th, 2020

During these unique times we want to let you know that Richter Publishing is operating all things as normal. Thankfully our business model has always functioned online so our operations are not being affected at this time. Freelancers have always worked from home. Interns and admins are now doing their duties from home as well. We will still be editing and publishing books, however we are asking for authors to not visit the office in person. We are still taking on new authors but request that everyone speak to us over the phone or email. If you are a new author you can set up a 20 minute book discovery call on our website here: https://richterpublishing.com/contact-us/

We are also creating an online self publishing course that we hope to launch by the end of the month. It will be available at a deep discount for the first few months. Authors will be able to publish their books cost effectively within the comfort of their own home and hopefully create another stream of revenue with their new books in this difficult time. Thank you for taking your part in helping this crisis to be contained as quickly as possible.

Self-Care During an Outbreak

The nation’s newest New Normal is still taking shape, but the confusion and uncertainty over what lies ahead in efforts to contain the Coronavirus is escalating anxiety levels in ways that are unprecedented. 

To help combat anxiety and depression around the crisis, self-care is going to be critical. This includes deep breathing, healthy eating and exercise, and most importantly – a POSTIVE MINDSET. However, none of this will be easy during a pandemic.

On Lock Down? Use This Time To Write Your Book!

Does the coronavirus got you locked up in your house? Meetings and conferences cancelled? This a great time to utilize and write your book! The most used excuse from aspiring authors is that they have no time to write. Well, that is no longer an excuse! Use this unique time to your benefit. Turn off the tv, switch the wifi OFF on your laptop and open up a Word Document instead. The best times spent on writing is without any distractions. You have already quarantined yourself, why waste it binging on Netflix wasting brain cells.

Did you know that the average person can write 800 words in an hour? If you have better typing skills it might be even more. So if instead of binging Netflix, or what I like to do is put on some soothing nature videos like fish in the ocean, and then type 800 words in just 3 hours you would have 2,400 words!

A 5×8 100 page book is only 20,000 words. So in just 9 hours you could have your rough draft complete! How many Netflix movies is that?  4.5 movies if they are 2 hours long. How many hours do you watch Netflix or Amazon or Hulu EVERY SINGLE NIGHT?! Those hours could be used doing something for your future, to better your life. If you really focused and wrote 5 hours a day, in less than a week you could have a rough draft. Within 2 weeks a draft of 40,000 words. Everyone is so upset about things getting canceled, and I know it’s sad, however use this opportunity! I see it as a blessing in disguise.
