Here I am, flying off into the horizon. Well, not really me, but it’s how I feel since my publisher announced the closing of their doors. So many publishers, big and small, have boarded up or merged – huddled together – to survive the wind of change sweeping through the industry of books.
I hadn’t intended to be a self-published author, but soon that’s exactly what I’ll be. My “To Do” list of items is a bit mind boggling and I’m trying to focus on each task and not the overall endeavor. Instead of spiraling into self-doubt I’m thinking of this as an opportunity.
My hope is for this to be a seamless transition with no disruption of sales of my books. I have two months to prepare. Surely I can manage with that timeline. Fingers crossed! If you’ve taken the self-publishing journey, I’d love to hear what has worked for you. As I move forward I will post the steps I’ve taken and how I’ve gone about it.
I thought it would be a great time to change up things on my blog too. In the coming months, you’ll see posts about my struggle with weight, my home improvement projects, and probably a few photos of my beloved old dog, Giblet, and of our rambunctious cats, Salem and Albert. When the weather turns in the spring I’ll be puttering in my garden and will undoubtedly show off some of my flowers.
