Writing a book was the easy part. Learning how to become a published author is exhausting. So many websites to visit and books to read. My brain is so full tonight I can hardly hear the voices in my head. Today I began learning about platforms and how to create and build them. Yesterday I spent 5 hours trolling the AgentQuery website (http://www.agentquery.com/) reading all the posts. So much information and it was a huge eye opener. I have so much to learn and so much to do. I feel a bit like Alice in Wonderland (except wonderland is a little confusing and frightening but also very exciting!).
I feel pretty lucky to have stumbled across Anne R Allen’s blog article, “I’ve Written a Book. Now What? 22 steps to Getting Published” (http://annerallen.blogspot.com/2012/04/ive-written-book-now-what-22-steps-to.html) at the beginning of my journey.
It gave me a hyper-realistic view of what to expect. I love the humor but also the truth. I’ve written three books now. I wanted to know for sure this writing thing wasn’t a fluke or a one-off miracle. I love it! I absolutely love it!
One step at a time. Just breathe! B
