About a week ago, I announced that I was writing a book. At that time, I was already more than halfway in and now, I am just about done with the first draft. It has taken me a few months, encountering lots of writer's block along the way, lack of inspiration and some downright lazy days. But I'm so excited to know that I am almost there and nervous to know that once I send my book to be edited, it will more than likely return with a bunch of red lines across most pages (lol). That's the fun of editing.
Before I forget, I will be self publishing through Amazon. It's kind of scary knowing that you have to come up with your own marketing scheme and promotion and whatever else you need to get the word out. Especially when you're from a wee little country such as The Bahamas. So if anyone has any tips/pointers they'd like to share, I'd be happy to have 'em.
I'm also meeting with the illustrator today to discuss the cover of the book. I know exactly what I have in mind, it's just now me having to explain it (I'm good with writing, bad with explaining. Don't ever ask me to give directions.)
I hope you guys have had an amazing weekend.
