Of possible interest to my author friends. (includes links to legal forms and spreadsheets)
The Rational Writer: Nuts and Bolts - Mindy Klasky

So, this just showed up in a search at my public library's ebook loans (overdrive).  The author is both traditionally and self-published.  Synopsis on back of book says:

"The Rational Writer: Nuts and Bolts is the first step-by-step guide to project management for writers, and it's equally suited to independent authors who self-publish their own books and traditional authors with publishing contracts from large or small presses. USA Today bestselling author and attorney Mindy Klasky shares more than 20 years of publishing experience to help writers spend more time writing books and less time managing business details. This nuts and bolts guide includes links to actual spreadsheets and legal forms, available for download and personalization.

 

Topics include:

 

Strategic Planning for Success: Defining a mission statement, setting precise goals, developing concrete strategies, and implementing specific actions to build your career.


Time Management for Success: Quantifying time allocation, identifying challenges to time management, and creating a tactical plan to meet all deadlines for print and ebook publication.


Tracking Data for Success: Identifying metadata for successful promotion of books and tracking those metadata across multiple books, series, and genres.


Quantifying Career Success: Monitoring freelance income, recording business deductions, and tracking books sold.


Specialized Issue in Successful Publishing: Executing rapid-release publishing for a series and creating and marketing multi-author boxed sets.


It's your writing career. Make the most of it!"

 

Didn't show up at my library but she also wrote:

Cover Reveal - Writing My Own Destiny

 

 

Blurb:

 
 
‘We love Aussies,’ they said, ‘the readers will eat you up’.

Those seven little words got me on a plane to the USA for the ‘Raunchy with a touch of sexiness – Valentine’s Day Author Event’ in Miami.

I’m a romance author. A girl with a vivid imagination, and an overactive sex drive. 

Oh, and yes I’m Australian

When I agreed the so-called love of my life had just walked out on me, leaving me with two little girls. All I wanted was a little fun and some no strings attached fun while I was there. 

It would be my very own ‘what happens in Miami, stays in Miami’.

Unless I fall in love with an American....

There’s no such thing as a happily ever after in real life.
