In my last post you saw how I talked about Joanna Penn’s book Business for Authors and it teaches authors how to be an author entrepreneur. I didn’t read the whole book but I got have half way through it and decided I didn’t want to do all the work it would take to run my writing career like a business. I really just want to write books and stories and share the with people.
She did get me thinking about how I wanted to do this. Did I still want to publish books and try to sell them through self promotion, or did I want to do a site like Booksie.com or inkitt.com where you can share your work with readers and its all free and you don’t get paid. I didn’t know if I wanted to do that. I just hated the idea of promoting my work. I just want to write and share my work.
But at the same time I don’t want to do it for free. Not after all the hard work I put into making a book. But then on the business side. I just think it’s way too much for me. More likely I was probably overwhelmed with the book. I think for my books to even reach readers I would have to do self promotion anyway so that’s probably what I’ll start doing.
I’ll keep you posted on my progress. Take care.
