How to Use Trello to Project Manage Your Book


Upon finishing the drafting of a manuscript, most writers are surprised to discover the real work has only just begun!

Structural edits, copy edits, cover design, interior design, back cover blurbs, and author photos… sometimes it seems the amount of work it takes to publish a book is insurmountable.

That’s why I’ve put together this video for you explaining a cool hack my collaborative partners and I use to help streamline the book production process. It’s an online project management tool called Trello, and, best of all, it’s free!

Check out the video now!

    Hi Kevin,

    Trello looks like a great collaboration tool. I’ve been looking since moving to Windows 8, after which I discovered my old MS Project was no longer compatible and it would cost $500 to upgrade.

    I would love to find something that lets me create a gantt chart — does Trello have something like that? I like to see the critical path, the dependencies, etc.. If a task duration estimate changes, I like to see how it will impact the project overall. I like seeing the big picture. Does that make old fashioned? LOL
