My current plan is to have at least 9,000 words since it is meant to help resolve a very specific problem and I don't want it to have any fluff. It's going to have a ton of images and illustrations to make my explanations as clear, interesting, and memorable as possible. It'll probably end of having about 50 - 60 pages. I will likely go on Elance.com and pay an editor or two to improve it further. I may also use BookBaby.com to have a cover designed for it. This process may take two months. I think my marketing plan will be reasonable since I will use some tips from Jeff Walker, Jay Abraham, Dan Kennedy when it comes to sales letters, niche site blogs, and this forum.
However, as I'm making sure the e-book/course is of high-quality, I also don't want to overdo it and delay the release of this first version longer than necessary. Are all the steps I listed reasonable before I even release this E-book? Do you see a flaw in my plan that I should take a closer look at?
