This week we are talking with Heather Hall Cassaday, an indie author who manages the website “In the Coming Time”. You can find her on Facebook and on her website: https://hlc027.wixsite.com/inthecomingtime.
- Don’t be afraid to put yourself out there. It take courage to put the inner working of your mind out for the world to see. You’ll be nervous and feel exposed at first, but it is far better than never having done it at all.
- Get involved in the writer’s community. Facebook, Twitter, GoodReads… all of these are good places to meet other writers. You can join groups and get involved in discussions, find advice you may never even know you needed. There’s so, so many resources out there and all you have to do is ask. I actually wrote an article about this called What Networking Has Done For Me under my personal tab on my blog.
a) Talk to authors who are successfully traditionally published.
b) Talk to authors who are successfully self-published.
c) Take a long, hard look at your finances.
d) Read Let’s Get Digitalby David Gaughran.
e) Promise the world that no matter which route you take, you will write the best you can, have your work professionally edited, and ensure that your work has a professional cover.
