Starting My Journey
I have completed my first book, a contemporary romance entitled Sweet Dreams.
Whew, it's not easy.
I sent out my first batch of Query letters in January. I set up an index of literary agents and publishers to contact.
I have updated my Twitter https://twitter.com/jsenhaji13 and Facebook https://www.facebook.com/jsenhaji13 accounts to proactively network with other writers and readers.
Now I start blogging.
Now I start my self publishing journey.
This weekend I read two books by Smashwords founder Mark Coker which were extremely informative. You can find them at https://www.smashwords.com/
Ok, so here is my current To Do List:
Edit, Revise, Edit
Create Cover Art
Get a Professional Head Shot
Upload with Smashwords
Upload with Kindle/Amazon
Upload with Create a Space for print
Set up Marketing Plan
Schedule a Release Date
Schedule Preorders and press release
I know there will be more things I add to the list as I work through this process, but this is enough for now. The whole thing is very interesting and very exciting.
Who else out there is going through this experience as well? I would love to exchange ideas.
