So, I read this blog post the other day about how J.A. Konrath sold $100,000 worth in his ebooks in three weeks and it made me take a step back and think....am I really cut out for this? He had a few follow up blogs regarding this amazing feat and what it's all about, but will I ever be able to say that I'm selling 1,000 books a day? A girl can dream!
It wasn't a picnic for J.A. Konrath or for any of those successful self -publishers out there at first, and most of us won't ever see that kind of success. And a post by Allen Schatz passed on to me by a friend, really hits on the reality of self publishing. We can all have our self-pub heros, but that doesn't guarantee instant success or even luck.
I'm doing what I can to promote and market my book (it's rather exhausting), so I'm willing to see how all of that pans out over the next few months. Regardless, I still don't regret my decision, and I am gearing up for more publications. It's been a trip and I'm not quitting anytime soon!
