#Planning- Letting out the Inner Monica.

When starting off as an indie writer, I thought that it was a simple enough formula to follow:

Write. Edit. Publish. Done.

Oh stupid, naive  me.

There’s so much more to that formula:

  1. Marketing
  2. Making an author website
  3. Self-Promotion
  4. Planning
  5. Formatting
  6. Launching
  7. More planning
  8. Waiting
  9. Writing book 2, 3 and maybe even 4
  10. Wondering why you even started
  11. More Self-Promotion
  12. Waiting some more

Thankfully, I have some of the best people in my “author training camp”. Also, I have the compulsive planning mindset of Monica Geller from Friends.

I’m in the midst of planning out my first marketing strategy. Playing House is in its final editing and formatting process. I’m also trying to finish planning not one, but two launch parties for it. *phew*

This life is not for the weak minded, that’s for sure.
