This is the Hardest Part of Self-Publishing Your Book

As I am writing the final chapters of my first draft of my novel, I realize that I am only a third of the way there in my publishing journey… This is a great read! ❤

Think self-publishing is a breeze? Here’s the reality check you need.

  1. 🙂 That’s the whole thing. I originally took 5 months (in 2006) to write the entire Solar Wind AND Shooting Star series… but then I went back and started editing, and I’m still at it! Every last one of them either was or is being rewritten entirely, smoothed, gone over umpteen times, checked against my beta readers, then hassled out with my editor… yes it’s a long process.

      1. 🙂 Let me know when you’re ready, I’ll send the pdf? alternatively they are up on epub, let me know the moment I need to make that book free. xxx

        The first draft is always the most exciting – that’s when the storyline gets laid down. But don’t worry – lots and lots of fun in the editing process too. 🙂 I can’t wait for your fairy story to be ready!!

  2. Hi I’m a kid in my late teens hoping to become a published writer one day when school is out of the way! I’ve already written some books and planned many others, do you have any advice on how to start with publishing? I’m all on my own and no one I know is a writer like me xxx

    1. Hi, there. I am just learning the ropes myself. The first thing you should do is hire an editor to help you with your writing. Then, go to CreateSpace and Amazon and read everything you can find about self-publishing. Take it slow and keep perfecting your craft. Talk to your teachers and let them know you want to be a writer. They should be able to help point you in the right direction. Good luck. Just keep writing. Don’t ever give up. ❤
