Ok, here me out. Despite the title, this post isn’t about me complaining about how long and tedious the publishing journey is. It isn’t either about how awfully slow it is to connect with readers. This is just part of the game, and all this build up is actually quite fascinating to experience. At least if one day my book becomes a bestseller (or a seller full stop), I’ll truly be able to enjoy it.
Instead of lamenting, I wanted to share with other newbie authors like me some of my experience and the lessons I’ve learned since publishing my novel, A Cunning Plan, nearly two months ago.
