It’s the second Wednesday of the month already and time to post in honour of the indie life, hosted by the Indelibles. Here goes.
Sometimes the pressure of being an indie writer can be overwhelming, but let me hasten to say the stress I feel is mostly self-induced. That comes with the thought of having to do everything.
With each book published, there’s the need to promote and ensure strong and sustained visibility. While that is going on, it’s easy to neglect the things that are supposed to be happening behind the scenes, like finishing that next book and staying on top of work, home and family matters.
Nevertheless, the sense of achievement with the publication of each novel is wonderful and low sales or not, that’s enough to keep the writer in us going.
