With a great deal of excitement and some trepidation, I am herewith, forthwith, and fifthwith announcing my entry into the world of self-publishing. So here’s my commitment:
On or before October 1, 2011I will self-publish Fur Ball Fever (a romantic crime mystery with attitude, most of it warped) and The Jaguar Legacy (a romantic adventure with paranormal elements, currently available in paperback and e-book format at Amazon.com).
Here’s the thing. Until now, I felt unable to commit to self-publishing 100% until I heard from the editor I hired, made the required changes (hopefully minor), developed a new website/blog, arranged for book reviews, had magnificent covers in hand, and mastered the intricacies of e-book formatting. Also, it would be nice if the moon, stars, and planets were in alignment.
I was more than happy to procrastinate, that is, until my web master, primary technical guru, and chief motivator (a.k.a. my husband) pointed out that complicated activities require a plan and a deadline (he is an ex-project manager). Hopefully, this announcement will galvanize me to action.
Is there anyone else out there procrastinating on doing something important?
