The description: If you're looking for specific, actionable tasks to launch your book, this checklist will empower you to launch your book like a pro! The reality, this is for first time authors who need to be told to set up their amazon account and want two pages of "go read this book." The timeline and tasks are extremely high view and do not bring you down to the nitty gritty. WIth the description included, I expected to open this up and start setting up a calendar immediately with specific items. Instead, there is literally a line in the tasks that says "Brainstorm a strategic plan for your launch." -- which was what I bought this download for: to tell set up a strategic plan for a launch.
