Now that I have successfully published a book. (I used successfully loosely as in it is available for purchase) I am now learning to truly appreciate the business aspect of writing.
The time and effort it takes for marketing alone can be overwhelming. Not to mention getting reviews and establishing your name as an author. The dedication that is required doesn’t stop once you’re published.
After seeing your work in print, you become your own PR team. And the truth is, if writing is who you are, then this is what you do.
Because in the end you believe in yourself and your unique way of telling your story.
So you keep writing, publishing, marketing, and reviewing.
