And so you’ve published a book…. Now what?

I’m about to hit the publishing road and I am terrified. As I transition from “writing for fun” to writing for (hopefully) money and fame, I am finding that there is a lot that I have to do to be able to even get going. In addition, there are lots of decisions to be made, time to be taken, money to be spent, just lots of everything. It’s no walk in the park, but if I can get myself to understand the realism of the situation, I think I’ll be okay as I move forward. I’m editing my new baby, but I think I might want to take some other steps before I do. Alexandra I had this to say about self-publishing and I think it’s good advice right when I need it…

    I had read you all works and I soo wanted to further read your journey of miles but I am unable to search it.. I was wondering if you culould help me through it. Can you please tell me where I can search it(the butterfly heart). Whether you have publisged it or not??
    Loves and hugs!

    • I actually have to rewrite it. It started out in one area and moved somewhere else. Butterfly’s Heart is still in re-editing, but Journey of Miles is the backstory and it’s on this blog. Just look in the menu to the left there and you should see it Just like Mending Dr. Steele. Don’t let it throw you, though. It starts out in Dallas and ends up in Charlotte… that’s because I changed locales midstream.
