Writing is a hard slog, but promoting your own work is even tougher. As an indie author (i.e. independent author), I must fund all of the printing, publishing and marketing costs for all of my books from my own pocket. This includes cover designs, professional editing, and a bunch of costs associated with legally setting up a manuscript as a published book. Then there’s printing costs, advertising, web hosting … the list goes on.
People often email me about when my next book is coming out, which is awesome, as it means they liked the book/s they’ve already read in the series. And I do try and get books written as fast as I can without sacrificing quality, but the painful lag between each book is due mainly to the fact I need to work a regular(ish) job to pay the bills.
That’s where you come in!
