The world of Self-publishing!

Ahh!  The world of self-publishing.  Take a look at this picture.  As authors and illustrators creativity is in our nature.  If you decide to walk into the world of self-publishing, then be prepared to handle the business side as well.  Little things like setting up your tables and planning events to promote your work must be done.  Stay goal oriented and enjoy the first breath after going days with sleep to finish your own novel.  Setting deadlines fall on your shoulders. I must have lost my mind because I finished my first illustrated children’s book in one month.  A second of month of editing at all hours of the night completed the my project.  Why would I stay up until 2:00 in the morning after a full day’s work and try to cram everything the shortest amount of time possible?  I have no idea 🙂  Just kidding.  Call it the burning desire all writers feel to see their words in print.  I also know the other side of myself – called procrastination.  How do I beat it?  I set unattainable goals and then spend every hour I’m supposed to be sleeping obsessing over it.  So, be prepared!  Your work doesn’t end once you receive your printed copy.  It’s just begun unless you want to see it sit on the shelf with all the other books that go unnoticed.   – Mahieu
