Recently, one of my blogging friends, Christine M. Grote, asked if she could feature my self-publishing journey on her blog. This morning she sent me the link to her post. When I read through the entries, I cried.
There was something powerful about having my self-publishing history laid out before me. When I realized how far I’d come, it released so many emotions, one of which was a sense of amazement. It felt good to see that I had accomplished so much. I also thought about the magic that happens when you join others’ along their self-publishing paths. You find people, like Christine, who understand the challenges and work towards the rewards. Christine, thank you for your continued encouragement.
Am I still scared every time the next step in the process presents itself? You bet I am. Yet when I reread how far I’d come, a twinge of courage lit me up once again. Below is the beginning of her post and a link to her website where you can follow my self-publishing journey:
I haven’t been able to give you an update on my self-publishing progress in a while, and I still can’t today. I am in a holding pattern while I wait for design work to be completed. I hope to be able to share my cover design with you soon.
Instead of writing about my progress, or lack of, I decided to write about the progress of one of my blogging buddies. JoDee Luna writes a blog at JoDeeLuna.wordpress.com. She is an educator, a writer, and artist, and an extremely creative individual. She calls herself a creative eclectic and has written a book entitled Refrain from the Identical that she is in the process of self-publishing. READ THE ENTIRE POST…
