So I posted yesterday about my new book, ‘Things I Wish I Could Tell My Younger Self,’ and so far so good. Unfortunately, I was confused as to why several names weren’t in my dedication and some errors that I was certain I had fixed. I realized that I had uploaded the incorrect file. I’m not going to take it down, but I just want to publicly apologize for those of you who were left out; Kristina, Brian, Dodie, and Elgon. (Elgon Williams is an awesome writer by the way). I really had intended for these people to be as much a part of this as they had been an inspiration and source of encouragement. I’m an idiot.
That issue aside I am proud to say that I am #7 on the Kindle Short Read Humor/Comedy list, which is AWESOME. I was going to pull the book and fix it but have decided that it would be a hassle and I don’t know how that would effect things so I have decided against it for that reason. However, I do want to thank everyone for their support and buying my book…if you have of course. It means a lot to me. I certainly hope that it is the first of many to come in the future. I promise I will be more careful next time.
Here is the thing I learned about self-publishing…although I did my whole book in a day, it is only 40 pages. I have a new admiration for those who self publish. Most do every bit of the work completely on their own, as I did, and that is a challenge. You format, write, edit, and do your cover design. It’s a very hands on process that is not easy by any stretch of the imagination. I just want to say that people should support self-published and indie authors more. It’s an amazing thing that they do from marketing to everything else that is involved.
Thanks again, much love. Elizabeth
