Today – What’s on my mind is the nearly overwhelming amount of PR that goes into marketing ones self – especially when you are absolutely ‘new’ to the field. I’ve written for so long for other people, it’s something of an overwhelming eye-opener to see just what goes into “getting yourself out there”.
I now spend as much or more time on social media as I do actually writing!
Should I join groups, if so, which groups? And, why aren’t there more conferences in areas I can actually get to?
Yes, I decided to go the indie publishing route instead of the traditional and now it’s all on me – success, failure.
One thing I have already decided is that in the future I will make myself readily available as a mentor to some other starry-eyed writer who is just starting out in the indie field.
