Now you are ready to publish your book This is the culmination of all your research and hard work. Here are the guidelines:

3. Once you submit your book, it will be returned to you as a “Proof” in about 10 business days. After you fix all of the issues with the “Proof”, send it back to them and then you will become a “published author.”

Do a Google search of your name. Since you have engaged in many Social Media activities this semester including: blogging, Twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn, Mind Mapping and Pinterest, you will be amazed at your enhanced “Digital Reputation.” I wish you the best of luck in all of your future endeavors!
