The Newfound Plight of the Indie Author

If you know me or are just finding out about me, you know that I have released my first ever eBook this week. It is thrilling, exciting, terrifying, and a million other emotions. I didn't expect one of them to be sadness.

I am probably confusing impatience with sadness. Either way, I want to see my book sale! I have two babies but my writing is my third. When I decided I was going to publish my work I tried not to think too much. I just had to do it. (Nike knows what they are talking about.)

Now that I have done it, I am facing what every other author has ever gone through; what if people don't like my work? What if they don't buy it? What if, what if, what if.

There is nothing I can do but have faith, shameless promote myself, and wait. Oh how I loathe waiting.

In the end, I suppose it is a good thing I didn't think too much because I might not have taken the plunge.

So I am off to write even more! Just keep swimming....
