2017: Year of Change
It may have appeared that I have been taking a break but this is far from the truth.
Over the last month or so I have been planning out what my goals will be for 2017. My ultimate goal revolved around the overall quality of my books. This meant writing as well as formatting.
Until recently I have not had the funds to pay for the things I envisioned (i.e. an editor). On that note, I want to thank everyone who has read or purchased a copy of my books. Not only do I feel honored but now I also want to repay you by putting out better books.
Goal #1: Find an Editor
One of my biggest goal was to hire on an editor.
I know I needed one but as I mentioned above I needed to rely on friends and family to look my manuscripts over. One of the downsides of self-publishing is that you have to build up your team yourself. This may take time but it makes all the difference.
Finally, last December I found my editor. She is currently hard at work looking over all my manuscripts and I am plugging away at some rewrites as well. Stay tuned for more.
Goal #2: Reformatting
This one was simpler than finding an editor. I had to improve my skills with formatting ebooks (or find a suitable program to help me do it).
I have been working hard at reformatting all five of my books which I have found is a huge undertaking but my efforts have been rewarded.
Here is a sneak peak:
Goal #3: Print Books
I have not had much progress on this goal yet.
I hope to do a book giveaway before the end of the year and do a trial run of some prints.
Goal #4: Write More! (Self-explanatory)
