My debut book, Enduring You, is a story of how detours occur in our lives, no matter how well we have them planned and mapped out. I'm finding self-publishing a book follows a very similar storyline.
Years ago, I took a class on self-publishing at a local community college walking away thinking, piece of cake! My confidence level was high I was leaving class with all the information needed to accomplish the task. All a person has to do is write a book, proof and edit it, then upload it on the internet. Since taking the class, I'm discovering it's a little bit more involved than that and a bigger investment of time.
This blog is about my journey, as a new indie author, and the discoveries along the way. Please don't misunderstand, I'm enjoying this journey with its detours and unexpected stops, having no regrets. By sharing my experience, I hope to help others to avoid getting lost or feel as if they have taken a long walk off of a short pier.
