Being an independent author in 2016 is an exciting and sometimes daunting career path. An author-entrepreneur must wear many hats, not the least of which is that of student.
Let’s face it. There is a lot to learn. Regardless of your experience level in any particular niche, being a writer and publisher and a marketer and a tech guru is overwhelming. Early in my career as an indie author I scoured the internet searching for any information I could get.
Your internet searches might look something like:
How to write complex characters?
How to write in third person?
The most successful authors are spending a lot of time becoming better authors. As it should be!
So asking yourself the question “How do I self-publish?” can feel as though it is splitting your attention. Spoiler Alert: It is! And because the answer to that very benign-looking question is actually infinite in its answer, you could spend forever trying to find the answers.
I know we all love a good mystery, but when our time is best spent writing, hours combing the internet for how-to guides can feel like a waste of time.
