Writing a book, even just one book, isn't easy and anyone who tells you otherwise is a horrible liar. It's not supposed to be easy, or it wouldn't be such a huge accomplishment. It's hard work, sure, but it is 100% worth it and then some.
When I first decided to self-publish I had no idea what I was doing and to be honest I'm not convinced I've got it worked out now. I've got some of it down sure but I'm a work in progress; An Author In Progress. That's what indie authors do, we try things out, we read blogs that tell us how to do it, we talk to each other about it, we collaborate until we know what we are doing and somewhere along the line after the mishaps and failed attempts we succeed.
The worst thing you can do is not try at all. You can't succeed if you don't try but you can certainly fail. The good thing about the indie community is that even when it seems to go wrong, there's always a friend who can give you a little advice. Looking for friends like that? Join the Author Friends With Benefits group. They are super supportive. Next week, I'm going to be sharing some of the things I got wrong when I first started self-publishing so make sure to check that post out if you are still a tad unsure.
