MY AUTHOR JOURNEY: How far I've come since selling a book a month

I've come a very long way since I got started as an indie author on New Year's Eve 2013.

In today's video, I'm giving you the biggest takeaways I've learned throughout the years and starting out selling maybe a book a month, including:

  • the most important things I've learned
  • the very first steps of my journey and how I became a lifelong reader (thanks to a very special teacher)
  • the very first thing I wrote 
  • the favorite stories that inspired me to become a writer
  • what I did for years before ever writing a single word 
  • why I took writing seriously in college and my first NaNoWriMo
  • how I found out about self-publishing and why writing became a lot less scary
  • what finally motivated me to write my first book
  • what happened to my very first book and what I wrote after that
  • the hard lessons I learned as a newbie indie author and the denial I went through
  • the specific things I did to turn things around and finally start selling some books
  • where I am now and what's still scary for me
