The JOY of Indie Publishing… I’m Serious!

I’ve spent the first week of Spring, knee-deep in self-publishing tasks—and though at times I’ve been overwhelmed, the bursts of joy I received accomplishing my goals and actually scratching-off numbers from my to-do list, has been pure bliss.

Waking to Black (Uninhibited #1), has been uploaded and currently can be pre-ordered on Amazon. I got my Goodreads Author account set up. And, this is the big one, Fading to Black (Uninhibited #2), went out to my editor!!!

Indie publishing is hard work—I’m busy dealing with promotions, contacting some awesome book-bloggers, about potentially reading my debut novel and writing honest reviews of Waking to Black. And I’m doing all of this, while still managing my busy family life. If I can do it, so can you!

P.S. If you’re like me and you NEED to read to decompress when you’re crazy-busy, I have a suggestion. Julie Garwood, is an incredible author. She originally wrote historical romance but in recent years has moved on to contemporary romance. Garwood is an amazing author in any capacity but her historical romances are my FAVORITE comfort reads. If you need to relax, pick up some of her historical romances, sit in a cozy spot, and binge read. My personal favorite Garwood, is Ransom, though that’s book two in a series. Happy reading!

The Journey Begins

It’s Getting Real!

If I had to pick a word to describe how I feel about publishing Book 1 of the Black Series, WAKING to Black, it would be—DAUNTING!

Of course, I’m excited at the prospect of having readers fall in love with two character I adore, but in reality, self-publishing is terrifying. The to-do list is huge, and while I could omit certain steps and just take the plunge, publishing and letting it be what it will be is not my style. I’m a planner.

Fortunately, the fruits of my planning are starting to pan out. The cover for waking is gorgeous, and the book went out for my last edit. My dream—is getting real!
