|Self-publishing is exhausting work. Writing a short story or novel is hard enough, but when you have to do everything yourself, it's easy to get worn out.
In order to publish my work through Amazon, I'm having to learn typesetting, and how to convert files. I also have to collaborate with a cover artist on book covers. I'm responsible for all my editing, but I've used test readers to ensure I haven't been blind to mistakes. I have to write compelling book blurbs to catch the attention of readers.
I need to get my website up and running, and I still haven't taken author pictures so that readers can know what I look like. I also need to find the most affordable way to advertise my ebooks.
But like the old saying goes, rome wasn't built in a day.
