The hardest part for me as a writer isn’t the writing, editing, creating book covers or even formatting my novel for publishing – no the hardest part for me personally is to promote!
I’m TERRIBLE at saying “Look at what I’ve done.”
On my lunch break, I type/edit/create at work, and have done so for years, and yet there are still many people in my office that have no idea I’m a writer. It’s just not in me to ask people to read my books.
NOT GOOD FOR A SELF-PUBLISHED AUTHOR.
Even as a kid, fundraisers for school were awful. Thankfully, Mom took the papers to her work where people signed up. I couldn’t ask for myself.
SO… where does that leave me, a self-published author with three books to promote and more on the way?!?
I’m glad you asked:
