I am getting my author website up and running. It's a little scary. There are a lot of things I don't know technology-wise, but I'm confident I'll have it all figured out soon.
The biggest thing I'm worried about is figuring out what to write and share with you here. I am shy and can be a little bit complainy. I am terrified that no one will want to read my books because my website and blog are boring. Or because I go off on tangents about my ideologies or how much I love my children, coffee and cats. Oh, and I'm super judgy. Like, I will judge the people in the drop off line at school for being assholes and not following the rules. Or people who don't like coffee. Or children. Or cats.
But as far as the writing craft goes, I am just starting and so wrapped up in figuring stuff out that I can't judge anyone else. I have chosen to go the self-publishing route mainly because, to be completely honest, I hate querying with a passion. It seems really archaic and contrite and I always mess something up. It takes forever and it makes me a nervous wreck.
But self-publishing is also hard. The biggest hurdles for me are expenses and the time it takes to figure everything out. Editors cost money. Like, a lot of money for a person living paycheck to paycheck with no rich uncle to die off at just the right time. So that's something I'm gong to be working on. And figuring out what kind of content to put on my website.
So, thank you so much for taking the time to visit. I'm gonna figure this shit out and I want you to join me. Please come back soon to see what I'm up to.
