To my past self:
So you want to start being a part time to full time writer eh?
Ok..so here’s what you gotta do.
1) Write the damn book. Far easier said than done.. but you can do it.
2) Get it published. Ok, we can do this.. Fiverr is your friend. Covers, kindle formatting, etc. Fiverr if your on a shoestring budget is your go to place.
What’s that? You think you don’t need to do number 3? Ah.. foolish foolish boy.
You will have to market the hell out of both yourself and the book. No one knows you, no one knows the story, and no one even will pay it any attention in the 80 thousand other books out there. You will have to submit the ebook to everywhere you can find, post every and anywhere you can proclaiming the book, and beg for real honest reviews. Now don’t be a dishonest guy, and pay for reviews, but submitting the eBook to websites that put the book and it’s cover out there? Yes please. Yes, I’m aware we don’t like promoting ourselves, but you want this? You gotta work for it man. Put it out there, be larger than life as the saying goes.
The only person keeping it from you.. is you.
