So I finally did it. I published my book! My lifelong goal has been accomplished.
But the Buck does not stop here.
I am beyond ecstatic, but the real work begins now. I have a physical product now. I have published my book, and could not be happier with the cover design.
Now all that's left is to market it. My dream now is to be a stay-at-home author. I am one step closer to that dream. I am learning every step of the way how hard it is to be an entrepreneur of your own work. I hope that I am up to the task.
I have learned that the trick to selling physical copies is local events.
In order to sell digital copies you have to advertise. So long story short, in order to make money, you have to spend money. It's difficult, but it is true.
I hope to grow my local audience, and maybe in the future I'll be even closer to my dream.
