What is my latest optimum book publishing strategy in view of recent editorial advice; by way of using Option Solving (OS)?

After continuing to explore further book publishing options and associated activities, your editor is now positioned to consider other possibilities prior to moving forward. This includes hybrid publishing not previously known to him. As these possibilities come into view, it now remains to review the latest options and decide the best way forward.

The most appropriate question at this moment in time appears to be: “What is my latest optimum book publishing strategy in view of recent editorial advice; considering 1) there are other publishing alternatives, 2) dealing with unorthodox book, 3) means additional editing costs, and 4) possibility for greater control over content?” Again, it’s appropriate for me to focus on just these four (normally recommend you stick with just four) considerations to reduce complexity in my eventual decision, when that ultimate moment arrives – despite there being many other possible considerations out there.

I now had to figure-out possible yin and yang “bookends,”as these will help keep my intuitive mind focused against other immediate mental distractions. Bookends such as these are vital for preventing our fertile intuitive minds from wandering and losing concentration. We are mostly unaware of how powerfully valuable but foot-loose our intuition can be unless we can keep it properly focused on such occasions.   

The bookends I decided upon are: “Clear the decks and start again”Bring unnecessary risks;and “Put self completely in the hands of latest development editor” Expensive and likely unwise. You will note the italicized detractors associated with these least likely options, which show why they are not really for consideration. Even so, these bookends now nudged my intuitive thinking into high gear again and consider a range of realistic options – see ourLatest Worked Example.

I then put together six realistic options – A thru F – and was then ready to pursue emotional distancing once more beforecoming to any outcome decision. I can then review these declared options, perhaps after 2 hours, later in the day, or first thing the following morning, before arriving at an optimal conclusion. You can replace my proposed options with any new ones of your own.

While all these options look interesting, I was especially intrigued by – Option D: Seek clarity on contract duration with Dev Editor – control very closely. I subsequently decided to sleep on it and seek input from others until the following morning and then proceed accordingly. I’m strongly advised to stick with whatever option my overall, intuitive choice turns out to be.
