I had a publisher I loved, and I got to talk with readers about my stories.
Well...my publisher closed.
Damn. But it was okay, because I had my books. Then I decided to try and gain traction with some bundles...
...that crashed and burned due to unforeseen circumstances.
Which meant I had NADDA.
After a lot (and I mean a LOT) of cursing, and kermit flailing around, I realized I have an opportunity to put these books out exactly as I want them. Market them exactly as I want, and own all of it myself.
They say you should start small. So...I figured I'd start TINY. I've got the ebook for Love Shack locked, loaded and ready to re-release all over the interwebs on June 6th.
And you know what? I'm just as nervous as I was releasing it the first time!! How? How is that a thing? More seasoned writers can chime in here, but my heart is trying to crawl out of my throat, and I think I should get a pass from the nerves since this is the second time.
My obsession with Tiny Houses and all the imagery/reality TV blended with my adoration of the close proximity trope in this book where a banker and minimalist meet each other in the middle of a crazy idea.
And yes. I'm nervous, but I'm also excited. I'm trying to do one new thing in the publishing process with each book I re-release. I'm learning all the things, and working toward that hybrid author status I'd dreamed of. I'm just working from the self-pub side first this round.
They say you should always do the thing that scares you the most, well...come along on my "tiny" terrifying journey.
I love this book, and I hope you'll all give it a chance.
What are you doing to chase your own dreams today?
