So, I’m supposed to get the cover back for my book, (actually I should get it this week), and I am anxiously, and without any patience, waiting for it. According to my agreement, it should’ve been done by yesterday, but it was a holiday, so I’m allowing some slack. I want to see the mock-ups so that I can make my decisions about how I want my book to look.
I can’t help but be anxious about a lot of things. I’m trying to draw attention to my website and my posts, but that is proving to be more difficult that I had anticipated. I guess that is what I get for not having more friends on FB. And I’m researching ways to market my book. Amazon has some great ideas, but I want my book to be global. Such ambitions, I know. My husband thinks that I am putting too much pressure on myself and that I should concentrate on just marketing and how to do that. Some of that involves money. That’s kind of what it all comes down to. Self-publishing takes a lot of upfront costs. Also stressful, bringing back back to the title of this…Ack!
There are a lot of things to ACK about, some of which I’m sure that I have talked about in previous posts. All I can do is shake my head and hope for the best. Do my best. Try the suggestions that have been made on almost every website that I have read (I can’t even tell you the amount of research that I have done). OK…I need patience. I need to market. I need to get my book out there so that my name becomes known. And I need to continue to just do my best about getting my book out for everyone to read. Ready, set, break!
