The Flat-Out Terror of Getting Published

Okay, dear readers, it’s official. I am going to be a published poet/author. Granted, my poetry book is self-published, but’s still putting my written word out there.

Sometime this March May (thanks, Trent’s World, for noticing that/commenting on it! 🙂 ), my poems will be released (inflicted?) upon the world. Brace yourselves!

Will keep you posted re: author website, promotional events/goodies and all that fun stuff.

Thanks for being along with the ride!

      1. I was wondering if you had a time machine 😉 I did my first self-publish this year. As long as you don’t expect too much, it is a good experience.

      2. The biggest one, when you’re ready to publish, stop, wait and review. I had to do a dozen revisions after I published and I think I am still missing two paragraphs on my Kindle edition (the pages don’t add up…) So patience is the biggest tip. (It will never ever be perfect and with self-publishing, you can go back and fix things)

      3. Oh yeah, I revised it and checked it and edited it a thousand times. And I was still doing at least five more edit checks in the week up to the publishing submittal.
