I looked up the job of a publishing company and realized that their job is every single thing that I’ve done for myself for the release of my first two books. On a much larger and efficient scale of course but stay with me. Being an independent author is no easy feat. It can seem like a glamorous thing to release a book, but the reality is that it takes a lot of work if people will ever know that it exists.
I was listening to the "My Taught You" podcast by Myleik who was interviewing author and blogger Luvvie Ajayi and an important concept finally clicked for me. Currently Luvvie is everywhere upon the release of her debut book “I’m Judging You.” I mean from the White House to OWN, she is living a lot of writers’ dream. But do you know what they said in that podcast that knocked my socks off? She’s been blogging for like 12 years.
