Journey to Self-Publishing
Updated: May 24, 2021
Ever since I was a teenager, I knew I wanted to be a published author. I've written a few manuscripts since then; however, the third manuscript is the only one that I think has any commercial potential. I love the characters and the world of my second "book", but it needs a lot of work. And the very first one? Oh, hell nah! That'll never see the light of day. I won't allow it.
Up until recently, there was never a doubt in my mind that I was going to go through the traditional route. Then, I had to make a really tough choice. Do I want to sell the rights of my manuscript to a publishing house, or would I be brave enough to take on the task of indie publishing in order to keep all the control over my own work? As evident to the title of this post, I chose to self-publish.
I know there are negatives to self-publishing, such as: being responsible financially for every aspect of creating a product, marketing by my onesie, and not having the support from industry professionals. But you know what? That's okay. I intend to learn, devour, and push through. So please feel free to join along as I post updates for this journey.
