Publishing. There is SO MUCH to do after writing your book. Who knew the hardest part started after pouring your soul into three hundred pages of fiction? Because I didn't. No amount of tweets or blog posts could have prepared me for the anger and frustration and pain that would follow the writing process. (Createspace and your monstrous formatting; Amazon and your multiple glitches; Weebly and your--well, Weebly's actually been a dream.)
But! (There's always a but.) It's worth it. YOU made it worth it.
I can't tell you how much your support means to me. The promoting; the Instagramming; the blogging; the love; the hugs; everything. WOWEEEE. This must be what a baby shower feels like because I am overwhelmed by the joy you've poured out on me :D
So, the next phase of this journey -- the after the publishing part? Still figuring it out. Figuring out how to get readers. How to blog content. How to stay engaged. It's never been a strong suit of mine--social media. Engaging. But, I'm trying. Just know, the struggle is real. And your patience and grace through this time is much appreciated. Hopefully, with book two (yes; already thinking of the next one to self publish!), I'll be a bit more professional about it. Until then, with this book, I'm just blubbering my way through it. #sorrynotsorry.
