After all these years of writing and creating, it’s time to take the plunge and work for myself 100%.
I have been an independent author for at least 10 years now, and have gained a lot of experience on the author side of self-publishing. The more I have written, the more I have learned.
I have published with KDP, Kobo, Lulu, and Draft2Digital. My books can be found on various platforms, and I have a number of printables in my Etsy shops.
As with everything, there’s a learning curve. I know I’ll make some mistakes along the way, but that’s how we learn. I have promised myself I won’t take on more than I can handle, which means I may be looking for additional help for some of the tasks.
I have wanted to be a desktop publisher since high school, and was accepted into a small college to do just that. As circumstances had it, the classes were cancelled because there wasn’t enough interest at the time, which left me to learn on my own.
Now that I’m on my own again, it’s time to put my energy into something I have wanted to do for over 30 years. My late husband was a wonderful supporter of my writing, and I know he would support this decision as well.
I’m ready for this next chapter in life, and will be adding publishing services in the not-too-distant-future. I believe all authors need to start somewhere, and there’s no better time than now.
