The hardest part of being an author is sucking it up and being you’re own hype man. Sure writing and editing are hard too, but having to sell yourself with confidence when you used it all pouring yourself into your books? That’s like function on two hours of sleep without a drop of coffee.
As an independently published author, 100% of the marketing is on me. Should be easy considering I am a marketer by trade, but it’s not. Self-promoting is difficult. It feels icky.
But it’s necessary.
I write because I want to share stories about every day people whose lives are like our own. I want readers to see themselves on the pages. I want you to relate.
A friend recently challenged me to share and promote my books. I resisted and argued. She didn’t back down, and I eventually saw her point.
Over the next few days, I’m going to be sharing a bit about each of my books. Why I write them and what I hope the readers connect to.
I hope you come along for the ride and fall in love with the women on these pages just as much as I did.
