Well, I’ve done it! I’ve published three books! I’m beyond the half way mark in this series and still going strong!
‘Saved’ is the title of said third book and it’s a beast. I broke 100k words with this manuscript and, after formatting, it weighed in at 426 pages in print. (this feels a bit like writing a birth announcement…)
Well, I keep writing. I’m 47,000(ish) words into the fourth book, Damned, and I’ve got the confidence thing down.
At least where writing is concerned.
Marketing? Ahhhhhhahahahahahaha! I have no hope. I rely HEAVILY on the BRILLIANT friends and fans that I’ve made over the course of this crazy, never-ending journey for that stuff. Sale graphics, promotional teasers, book trailers, blog tours, release blitzes, reviews, interviews, takeovers… It’s seriously a veritable LANDSLIDE of things that I don’t know how to do.
Thank the powers that be for my street team! Those girls keep me going when all I want to do is lie down on the floor and never look at a computer again.
That’s not to mention the readers, bloggers, family members, and OTHER AUTHORS who have supported the hell out of me over the last six months! I love them all dearly.
I cannot stress this enough: IF YOU ARE TRYING TO BREAK INTO THE SCENE AS AN INDIE AUTHOR, FIND A SUPPORT GROUP!!!
You can start with me if you’d like. My Facebook page doesn’t turn people away, and my fan page is always looking for new friends! Not to mention my Amazon Author Profile (where you can also buy this pretty book AND the first two in the series)
As always, Happy Writing!
